Welcome to Wuyi Shan
Despite a long association with domestic travellers, Wuyi Shan (武夷山, Wǔyí Shān) is a mountain retreat which retains a sense of untouched natural splendour. Set high up in the northwest of Fujian, its hiking trails through protected forests and the famed bamboo rafting trip are well worth the effort to come here. Try to visit midweek or in low season (November, March and April) and you might have the area to yourself. Avoid visiting during heavy rain (especially during summer months) even if the hotels and tour organisers advise otherwise.
