Mengdong River snakes through deep gorges in Yongshun and Guzhang counties for 100 kilometers. It is an excellent waterway for whitewater rafting in skin rafts. On both sides of this site are primitive secondary forests, luxuriant trees finely matched to the surging currents and forming a picturesque natural landscape. There are 108 rapids and shoals, as well as 20 waterfalls, both large and small. Drifting over torrential currents, getting across dangerous shoals, breaking through narrow gorges and chasing surging waves, you will feel yourself in a lovely setting, which will provide vivid memories.
