Jiuqu Xi (Nine-bend River) is the main peak of Wuyi Mountains, a stream at the southwest foot of Mount Huanggang, and located among the valleys of Wuyi Mountains. There are totally 36 peaks and 99 rocks in Wuyi Mountains, and peaks and rocks interleaved with each other, with Jiuqu Xi running through. The Nine-bend River has total length of 9.5 km, with green mountains and clean water, each bend has a different view of the landscape.Jiuqu Xi is also known as the soul of Wuyi Mountains. We took the thousand years of traffic tools – bamboo raft from the Xing Village (the end of the Jiuqu), and down the river all the way, everywhere is beautiful scenery.
The Jiuqu Xi raft workers are basically local villagers. In fact, they have formed a unified management. As soon as boarding the bamboo raft, also indicates that you are on his boat, and you should listen to the boatman all the way, of course, the tip is needed.
Board on the bamboo raft, then punting up…
