Jiulongji Waterfall Introduction

As a provincial-level scenic spot, Jiulongji Waterfall Groups is located in the valley of lower reaches of Qibu River in Zhouning County, 14km away from county center. It covers 9.5 Square km, among which the protected central area is 4 km and called the Longxi River (Dragon River).
The Longxi River's 300-metre drop in the less than 3-kilometer course leads to the formation of 9-stage marvelous deep ponds. The nine-stage waterfalls connect o­ne by o­ne, each having their own characteristics. Some have wonderful scenes; others are not peaceful but very striking. The scene is regarded as "No.1 in Fujian", "Only in East of China."
The first stage of Jiulongji Waterfall is the most wonderful. The waterfall is 46.7 meters high with 75 meters wide. When water is plenty, it can reach 83 meters wide, which is 40 meters wider than Huangguoshu Waterfall in Guizhou Province. When it falls, it is like a dragon playing in the water. At the end of the nine-stage falls there is a quiet pond that is over 100 meters long. The two sides of the valley are reflected in the ponds, which form the beautiful green scenes. The Longxi hydropower station is at the end of the long pond. Rowing boats in the ponds and enjoying the scenes can make you feel the wild and natural taste of the villages.
Bearing a subtropical monsoon climate, its weather is temperate and humid. The annual average temperature remains around 19 C (66 F). March to June is the plum rain period, and July to September is the season of typhoon and thunder storm. This period gathers about eighty percent of a year's rainfall. The best time to visit there is April to December .
