The Xuelang Mountain Ecological and Scenic Garden, in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, opened a rafting resort, on Aug 7, on the slope of Xuelang Mountain close to Taihu Lake and the downtown part of Wuxi.

The river starts up on the mountain and runs 2,500 meters down to the fishing center, allowing for a 50-minute raft journey that lets you experience the thrills of rafting, and the beautiful scenery along the banks.

The resort offers two levels of rafting: one that is more suited to adventurous tourists looking for excitement, or who have some rafting experience, starting at a precipitous part upstream, where the water is faster; and one more suited to children and middle-aged people without rafting experience, which starts in the middle part of the river and is slower.
