Panyang River Scenic Area

By (chinadaily.com.cn)

Panyang River Scenic Area, also known as Longevity River Scenic Area, in Bama Yao autonomous county in Hechi, Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region was designated as a national 4A-level scenic spot in 2009.

The Panyang River originates at Qiaoyin township in Hechi's Fengshan county, and ultimately flows into Cifu Lake in Bama. It stretches a length of 145 kilometers, 60 of which is in Bama.

The river's name "Panyang" comes from the Panyang Village in Bama, located at the middle section of the river. There are many centenarians in the village, hence the name "Longevity River."

Typical karst landscapes can be found along the river, including karst caves and waterfalls.
