Xiangxiyuan, which is the source land of Xiangxiyuan River—a tributary of Yantze River, is also a famous attraction in Shennongjia. The clear Xiangxiyuan goes through Muyu, Xingshan, Zigui for 91 kilometers and empties into Yantze River. Xiangxi River is well-known because it had fostered Quyuan(one of the world ‘ four culture persons’) and Wang Zhaojun(one of the ‘ four beauties’ in ancient China). According to Xingshan County Record, Zhaojun lived near the river and often washed her hands in the river, and therefore the river became fragant. The river was named Xiangxi because of her fragrance, the clearness and muddy water alternated with each other, and much vanilla is growing on the bank. Luyu, Tea Saint in Tang Dynasty, once listed the river as the fourteenth spring in China.

Xiangxiyuan Attraction provide many kinds of tour items for visitors, such as, receiving hydrotherapy, enjoying the tea in the tea house, camping , exploring primitive forest , looking for ‘uncivilized men’ and the Golden Monkey and their resting place.
