Nine-bend River (Jiuqu Stream)
Nine-bend River originates in the western part of Wu Yi Shan. The water in this river is abundant and pure. The total length of the stream is around 62.8 kilometers, bending in several places around the mountains. Taking a bamboo raft down the river to view the beautiful scenery of the mountains is one of the most popular activities for visitors in Mount Wuyi.
Heavenly Tour Peak (Tianyou Peak)
The name of Heavenly Tour Peak reveals its uniqueness. When you climb this peak on a cloudy day, you will feel like you are having a tour of heaven surrounded by the clouds. It stands in the center of the whole attraction, with a height of around 400 meters (1,312 ft). Its special scenery makes it a must going place in Mount Wuyi.
Water Curtain Cave
This is one of the 72 caves in Mount Wuyi. There are two large waterfalls pouring from the top of the cave at a height of over 100 meters (330 ft), like two bead curtains falling from the sky, that the way gets the name of Water Curtain Cave.
Tiger Roaring Rock (Huxiao Crag)
On Tiger Roaring Rock, there lies a huge cave. When wind blows through the cave, huge sounds echo among the mountains, just like the sound of a tiger roaring. Therefore, this place gets the name of Tiger Roaring Rock.
A Thread of Sky
This place is an enormous rock with a height of around 50 meters (165 ft) split from the top with a narrow crack, of which the widest part is 1 meter (3.3 ft) and the narrowest part is only 0.3 meter (1 ft).
