Landscape along Lijiang River

Get Flash Player

Liangjiang River originates from Cat Mountain in Xing'an Country in the north of Guilin. It flows 437 kilometres down Guilin, Yangshuo, Pingle and Wuzhou into the west River.

Between Guilin and Yangshuo, Lijiang River travels 83 kilometres exactly like a jade ribbon winding among thousands of grotesque peaks, the variegated cliffs and odd-shaped crags reflected in the mirror of its crystal-clear water and the wonderful deep pools, running springs and flying aterfalls everywhere.

The reflections of the hills in clear and greenish water are like bright and beautiful pictures. "One hundred miles Lijiang River, one hundred miles art gallery," Alot of excellent poems and literary works in modern or ancient appreciate her beauty.

Han Yu, a great poet in Tang Dynasty, had written a popular poem to praise the beautiful scenery of Lijiang River."The river winds like a blue silk ribbon, while the hills erect like green jade hairpins."
