The stream originates from the southwest foot of Huang Gang Peak, which is the main peak of the Wuyi Mountain, passing the Xingcun Town and running from west to east through the Wuyi Spot. It has nine twists, hence its name. The total length of the stream is 9.5 kilometers running through an area of 8.5 square kilometers. Short as it is, the stream has picturesque scenery and every twist has a different landscape view.
The stream water is so clear that you can see the stone at the bottom .The clear stream forms a delightful contrast with the red mountains, with each bend having its own unique landscapes. O­n both sides of the Nine Twists Stream stand grotesque rocks. Along the winding stream, there are both shallow and deep pools. Visitors can enjoy a tour in the Wuyi Mountain Scene Area by taking a boat, appreciating the mountains in the distance and visiting caves.

Nine Twists Stream Features

Highlight
An ancient legend says that in prehistoric period, there was an eight hundred-year-old man named Peng Zu who came to live in Chong'an, where the people suffered because of serious flooding. Peng Zu had two sons, Wu and Yi, who offered to dredge the waterways and finally conquered the floods. To commemorate the Peng brothers, the mountain was named Wuyi Mountain, and a palace was built in their memory. The river they dredged now called the Nine-Bend River (Jiuquxi) winds for several miles in the mountain. Today, tourists can travel down the river o­n bamboo raft excursions.
It is said that when the noted scholar Zhu Xi (1130-1200) of the Song Dynasty came to the Nine-Bend River, he was so attracted by its beautiful scenery that he wrote a poem in praise of the place and ordered a school built by the river-the Ziyang Academy of Classic Learning.
Jiuqu Stream (Nine Twists Stream) is fantastic with torrents churning over shoals, throwing sheets of spray into the air, and then merging into clear deep pools which are as smooth as a mirror. o­n its two banks, different peaks go up.The Jiuqu Stream is an amazing place to visit. o­ne taking a bamboo raft downstream would feel as if cruising in the mysterious universe.
Along the winding stream, there are both shoals and deep pools. Visitors may enjoy themselves in the Wuyishan Scenic Area by taking a boat tour, appreciating the mountains in the distance and visiting caves. Floating o­n a bamboo raft along the stream, you may raise your head to appreciate the towering mountains, and lower it to listen to the flowing water, and touch it with your hands.
