the Scenic Spot of the Duoyi River

Last updated by chinatravel at 2015/11/4

The scenic spot stretches from the Duoyi Stockaded Village to the meeting-point of the three rivers which is also the common part of the three provinces. There are approximately 40 waterfalls along the river bed which is about 12 kilometers long. On both banks of the river grow many ancient trees and elegant bamboos. The sight is colourful and well arranged. The river water is clear and blue all the year round. The most charming are those ancient trees with a history of more than one thousand years on the banks. The roots of the trees are twining and the whole place is just like a giant natural artistic exhibition hall for the root carvings. Here you can fully enjoy such wonders like the three rivers running together, the clear water running in one direction and the muddy water running in another direction.

More Tips:
The Duoyi River stretches for more than 10 miles. You can take a pedicab and tour along the Duoyi River. The distant mountains are green, and the paddyfields on the banks wave to and fro. If you are tired, just stop and taste the grilled fish and grilled potatoes, or buy a wreath Buyi women plait with cole flowers and radish flowers and put it on your head. The most distinctive thing is the Colourful Flower Rice of the Buyi people. They get all kinds of flowers, leaves and roots on the mountain, and cook them in water to get their juice. Then they marinate the sticky rice in the juice to dye them into red, yellow, blue, black and purple. Finally they braise the sticky rice, roll the rice into colourful rice balls, and apply the honey. It is said that the rice balls can detoxifcating.
