Along the river, green mountains rise sharply from the valley , with more than 30 fascinating waterfalls. You will find yourself have enough freedom to be yourself when canoeing in the river.
Another notable river for drifting is called Mengdong River regarded as "Number-One drifting in the World", nearly 40 minutes drive of downtown Zhangjiajie .Mengdong River is situated 80km southeast of Zhangjiajie city, nestled among steep and verdant mountains. It flows through a primitive canyon with towering limestone cliffs, which is an ideal place for retreats.
