Nine Torrents and Eighteen Shoals

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/4/28

“Torrent”, which is pronounced “Long” in Chinese, refers to the narrow and long channel section with sudden fall; “Current”, pronounced as “Tan” in Chinese, means where the river bottom is broad and the water runs rapidly. When drifting in the river, the hovercraft is sometimes hold high by the rushing waves and suddenly flung down, leaving you with a deep impression. However, drifting by hovercraft in the river is exciting but safe, different from the professional drifting and dangerous exploration activities. There have been no record of accidents in Nine Torrents and Eighteen Shoals since it was first developed in 1987. Drifting in the scenic spot is a good choice for both young men and senior citizens.
