Maoyan River Features

Maoyan River is 30-50 metes wide, and its largest water fall reaches 64 meters. The water rushes uneasily along the canyon through cliffs and gorges to the east, leaving many extremely dangerous spots behind. Floating o­n the river in a boat, you will be exposed to the violent forces of the waves. However, you won’t forget the astonishing beauty of the mountains and the surprising turns of the water. Caves are decorating both banks, and more than 30 springs and waterfalls run down from above. o­n the river, you will feel like entering a landscape gallery.
This body of water is 50 kilometers in length and is actually the upper reach of the Lishui River (one of the four biggest rivers in Hunan Province, originating in the National Nature Preserve of Badagong Mountain in Sangzhi Country). It was given the name "One Hundred Li Gallery" by its explorer, Tain Guijun. And the river also was popularized as the first "Rudy Boat Water Rafting Tour Route". Early in the 1980s, it was promoted as the "First Water rafting Route in the World"
