Tracing the winding stream upward，in the middle reaches of the Returning Dragon Stream which is as long as more than 200 meters, there are nine dragon pool embedded with different sizes and beauty. They are named by local people as Dragon Thread Pool, Dragon Bathing Pool, Dragon Dustpan Pool and Dragon Bucket Pool, etc, according to their shapes. They are all filled with green water and restful to the eyes. The White Dragon Waterfall stand superiorly beside the gully with water rushing down like silk and shade, which is high, broad, spectacular with extraordinary vigor. Going ahead, you will see the Ruanshan (Soft Mountain) Reservoir, whose popular name is water abode. The water of the abode is as clear as a mirror and therefore is a cool world in the summer.
What appeals most to tourists is the Feilai Waterfall as high as about one hundred meters. The waterfall runs ceaselessly all the year around. The stream below it, which is as long as one thousand meters, erodes tens of small blue ponds and caves. The small currents seem like a huge winding dragon, tossing and turning and dancing, which can be called a wonder of the Huilong (Returning Dragon) Stream.
