Hongkou rafting is known as the best rafting location in western China. It is located in national nature reserve Dujiangyan Hongkou, 25km from the villa. The primordial ecosystem is well-protected, including hilss and mountains, gorges, clear springs, waterfalls and virgin forests. For this reason it is known as “the first river drift in West China.” You can choose between two different routes: difficult and easy. The difficult one only takes 10 minutes, but the many bumps and turns make it a thrilling ride. The easy route takes two hours and is great for taking in the natural scenic area. The river and its natural surrounding beauty create a good environment for drifting where people can relax. Also, it is designated as the national whitewater kayak training base.
The water is clean and clear. The drifting line is 24.2 kilomters with many rapids and slopes. The falls are approximately one meter high.
