Bamboo Raft Tour of Wuyishan

Although not strictly tea related, the bamboo raft tour is an excellent adventure. The tour is a ride down the 9 bend river which goes through the Zhengyan tea area. Groups of 6 people sit and enjoy the ride while the guides poll the raft down the river. Along the river you get a sense for the history and an understanding for the unique conditions that make Wuyishan a great area for tea.

Closer view of the warf. The boats are brought back by truck and prepared for the next day.
Two rafts are lashed together to make a boat. Six guests enjoy the views while two guides direct the raft.
Many interesting places along the river. It would be nice to explore.
We stopped on a sand bar to take some photos.
