Looking at several scenic spots in Taining, I feel that Jiulongtan is better than Shangqingxi. It can even surpass Wuyi Mountain. I didn't think it was necessary to come to Taining after seeing Wuyi Mountain, but I felt very good after seeing Maoer Mountain and Zhaixia Grand Canyon yesterday. So I changed my schedule and stayed in Taining for two more nights, adding Shangqing River and Jiulongtan. The best impression is Kowloon Lake. Its Danxia landform has almost three stages in the early, middle and late stages, which is not found in Wuyi Mountain. The plant species and mountainous beauty on the mountain also surpass that of Wuyi Mountain. Although the time spent drifting on the water is less than that of Wuyi Mountain, there are more scenic spots and the process is refreshing.
Jiulongtan Scenic Area is located in Taining County, Fujian Province, the world natural heritage, the northern core of the World Geopark. Jiulongtan is the most dense and complex Danxia Canyon Group in China. It is a typical area of Danxia landform development in Taining's youth. Ronghu Lake, streams, mountains, valleys, rocks, peaks and ditches vary in many ways. It is known as "Taining Danxia Mountain Water Miniature Pearl". First, change to the shuttle bus of Jiulongtan Scenic Spot in Changxing Service Area. It takes about 5 minutes to get to the Scenic Spot. It coincides with Taining Mischievous Festival. There are various poster advertisements. It's about 10 minutes'walk from the departure point to the boat station. You can choose to do bamboo raft or hovercraft drifting on the upstream land. The bamboo raft is 4 people/row, one person is 90 yuan. If there are vacancies, if you don't want to wait, 30 yuan/seat, 17 of us have 5 bamboo rafts to ride. Based on the usual practice, we tipped 20 yuan for each bamboo raft (not to give it), but also hope to have a good mood for play. Boat boating in Kowloon Lake, blue sky and white clouds, beautiful. When the oars are swinging, the mood is beautiful. Dense Danxia peak cluster, peak forest, Canyon vertically and horizontally, groove cave unique features. In the boat pool, looking at the picturesque valleys, streams, plants, green water, three divine points, seven points rely on imagination, with the guidance of Van Gong, step by step change scenery, beautiful. In spite of the bright sunshine outside, there was a trace of coolness during the boating. The water surface and its calm, like a jasper, is a static beauty. When passing through the cave, Gong Fan will sing Hakka folk songs. The song echoes in the cave, and his heart is very quiet. The world-renowned water front day, known as China's longest and narrowest place only allows a bamboo raft to pass through, laments the magic of nature, the growth of all things, has its own mysterious place.
It is convenient to get off the bus at the railway station and arrive at the county town. The bus at the Ancient City Theatre reaches the service area for $10. It is convenient to get tickets and ID cards. Bamboo platoon and scenic area gate ticket together purchase is a discount ticket, scenic spot purchase 15 yuan round trip ticket, relax mood, very happy oh....
Particularly good, Wuyishan to buy tickets to Jiuquxi only a few days later, there is no time to wait so long to Taining, Jiulongtan bamboo raft is also very characteristic, bamboo raft more than an hour, there are many canyons on both sides, there is more than a kilometer of water a day, especially narrow, bamboo raft can only pass one, this side of the bamboo raft is only four people. If you want to walk on land, there is also a waterfront trestle. The scenery is good and you are not very tired. You don't have to queue up very much. If you don't want to wait for four people to walk, you can make up 30 in one place. For tips, it's also good to give tips on your own to introduce scenic spots. You have to pay for a tour guide, too.
This is the "Danxia of China" World Natural Heritage Site, one of the core scenic spots of Taining World Geopark, Jiulongtan scenic spot. It is a pool formed by the merging of nine mountain streams into the canyon group, matched by Danxia landscapes, with luxuriant and precious vegetation, which can be called a couple's paradise.
Taining's Jiulongtan is very different from Shangqingxi. Kowloon Lake is a closed lake. Water upstream requires manpower boating. Shangqingxi is a drifting river. I like Kowloon Lake better. She not only swims on water but also on land. They feel totally different. It's better to walk if you have time.
Originally thought it was unnecessary to visit Taining after seeing Wuyi Mountain, but only after seeing Jiulongtan did I know that it was unnecessary to visit Wuyi Mountain after seeing Taining. The Danxia landform in Jiulongtan has almost three stages in the early, middle and late stages, which is not found in Wuyi Mountain. The mountain-shaped landform and vegetation types are better than those in Wuyi Mountain. As for water rafting, although the time is not as long as Mount Wuyi, the scenery on both sides of the Taiwan Strait is more beautiful.
Taining Jiulongtan is called Jiulongtan, also known as Huangganglong, because nine mountain streams of Panlong flow into the pond. It also belongs to Danxia landform, which is associated with Shangqing River, Zhuangyuan Rock and Hongshigou. Here you can first browse from the cruise ship, then walk up the mountain, at least half the time to prepare. When the cruise boat shuttles on the quiet lake, facing the folk song, it is a kind of enjoyment. The scenery is exquisite. You can boat in Kowloon Pool. To get here, we have to go to Changxing Service Area first, and then do the car to the scenic area, so the car in the scenic area must be imposed... Public transport is very inconvenient. It is suggested to charter a car directly. Changxing Service Area connects Kowloon Pool, Shangqing River and Zhuangyuan Rock for sightseeing.
I like it very much. The family has a good time. It's very suitable for parents and children. The whole bamboo platoon is reverie! Particularly with friends to fight water battles, children are very excited, especially remind like to play water gun with more clothes, mountain wind is easy to catch cold!
I came to Taining for four days and basically left all the scenic spots. I like Kowloon Pool best. Although it is still lake water, the water landscape is very good. The water line is nearly one kilometer above the water. When I went there, it was just noon. Except for our boat, there was nothing else. It was quiet and quiet. It was better than Shangqingxi.
