The Nine Bend Stream, also called Jiuqu Stream flows from the north foot of Huanggang Peak. It snakes through 36 mountains and 99 cliffs that are distributed on the bank of the stream. It runs for 62.8 km from west to east through Mount Wuyi and girdled by mountains into nine bends. Nine Bend Stream is the soul of Mount Wuyi with the most charming scenery. Superior climate and environment give birth to the wonderful scene of ''trees growing out of rocks''. Drifting on the Nine Bend Stream, you probably lose yourself!
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.
