My Yulong River Rafting Adventure (Part 3)

Continued from Part 2

I have taken so many photos during my Yulong River rafting that I had a hard time deciding which ones to put up on this post.

The photos I like most are those which show clear reflection of the hills and landscapes.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I love the sight of green rolling hills reflected on clear water.

Photobucket

As we continued downstream, I noticed there were rafts heading upstream in the opposite direction.

Photobucket

I soon realised we were approaching another pier. If I am not mistaken, I think this is the Chaoyang Pier.

Photobucket

Lots and lots of bamboo rafts here!

Passing this pier, we soon came to another weir dam. After crossing this weir dam, my rafter stopped the raft by the side of the river bank and asked me to get down. He was going to bring me to observe the irrigation system on the farmland.

It was here that I met with an accident. I got down from the raft and stepped onto a huge slab of stone when I suddenly slipped and fell into the water! This is the spot where I slipped.

Photobucket

It happened so fast I did not know what hit me. The next second, I was in the river with the water reaching my waist level. It was quite a shock as I did not realize the water was that deep.

My rafter quickly helped to pull me out of the river. My first thought was my camera. Oh no! All my photos! All the photos that I've taken during the past 5 days! Would they be destroyed?

I had hanged my camera from my neck using a strap but I was not sure if it was submerged in the water when I fell. I quickly checked my camera to see if it was wet. Thank God it wasn't!

As I continue to check and re-check my camera, Jam and his friend quickly got off their raft and came over. It was then that I realised my right feet was bleeding. I felt a sharp pain there.

Jam's friend pointed out that the back of my left leg was injured too. I bent back to look and sure enough, there was a long cut there.

Photobucket

The cut from the middle part of my left leg extended up my left thigh.

Photobucket

My rafter managed to pluck some herbs from the farmland and applied those herbs onto my right toe to stop the bleeding. Thank goodness for the herbs!

Photobucket

I did not bring any first aid kit with me so I could not apply any bandage over it. My rafter just wrapped my toe with several pieces of tissues and advised me to keep my foot dry.

I could not move around much so I just took a photo of the water pump I saw at the farmland.

Photobucket

This water pump was used to pump water from the river to irrigate the farmland. There used to be water wheels in the olden days to carry water from the river but they were all replaced with water pumps.

When Jam and his friend had seen enough, we returned to our rafts. My rafter carried me behind his back and took me back to my raft. This must be the first time in my adult life being carried like that! Anyway, thank you to my rafter for his kind gesture!

Back on the raft, I took off the tissue that was wrapped around my toe. The rafter said I had to make sure I prevent my toe from being exposed to water and the hot sun to avoid any serious infection. So he asked me to put my right leg up to rest on the chair beside me, like this.

Photobucket

My rafter had adjusted the umbrella so that my right leg was constantly under the shade. Also with my leg high up on the chair, the river water would not get to splash onto my toe. Even then, I had to be extra careful and shielded my toe from the water every time we went down a weir dam!

As we moved downstream, there were more and more rafts along the river. It was becoming more touristy. I could see children and adults playing with water guns!

Photobucket

Hey, how come we did not have those water guns? I would love to shoot some water at Jam and his friend! Haha! But with the condition I was in, I was actually a little worried that these tourists would accidentally splashed my toe with water so I had hoped my rafter would quickly get our raft out of their way!

Soon it was time for us to stop for lunch. Our rafters brought us to Windmill Mountain Villa.

Photobucket

The name sounds nice doesn't it, but it's just another pier and a stopover for a meal. It was here I saw the only water wheel to be found along Yulong River!

Photobucket

See how the water wheel transported the water up from the river.

Photobucket

I did not climb up to take photos of the water wheel from behind. I left Jam and his friend to walk around the place while I rested my legs at the hut where we were going to have our lunch.

Photobucket

It was actually a nice place to have lunch as the view from here was beautiful!

Photobucket

The weir dam in front of the hut also make for nice viewing!

Photobucket

We invited our two rafters to lunch with us. These were what we ate.

Bamboo shoots.

Photobucket

Beggar duck.

Photobucket

I have heard of beggar chicken, but beggar duck? They were OK, though.

Eggs.

Photobucket

And vegetables.

Photobucket

The lunch was not too bad. However, we would end up regretting eating this lunch a day later. I will let you know why in my future post.

After lunch, we resumed our journey on the rafts.

There were lots more tourists downstream than upstream.

Photobucket

See this funny shaped hill? Looks like a thumb to me.

Photobucket

More beautiful scenery along our remaining journey.

Photobucket

Lots of bamboo trees!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Finally, after 5 hours of traveling on the Yulong River, we reached Gongnong Bridge, which was the end of our river rafting journey.

Photobucket

We docked at Gongnong Bridge Pier. There, we could see workers carrying our rafts up to the lorry to be transported back upstream for the benefit of other tourists who planned to go rafting on Yulong River.

Photobucket

I really enjoyed myself despite that unfortunate accident! I would not mind doing it all over again!

    Love the excitement on the Yulong river and sorry to know of the accident. Glad all things turned well.

    That's not a thumb looks like your toe haha..

    Sorry to hear about your fall....anyway, luckily your camera still function! Or else, we won't have a chance to view through all this beautiful scenery! Thanks foong and take care! :)

  5. ladyviral said...

    Ouch! Now that is painful.

    Hopefully the cuts weren't very deep. Sucks to be caught in an accident on a holiday.

  6. Borneo Falcon said...

    It amazes me how the rafter knows which natural medicine to use in that situation. He improvised it like "MacGyver".

    October 23, 2009 at 10:57 AM
  7. ladyviral said...

    The food wasn't clean? You all started to purge ar? :P That or you all found a rat running nearby hahaha.

    Thumb? Looks like your toe to me.. maybe too much pictures of your toe. :P

    Hope it is all better now by the way :).

    October 23, 2009 at 10:58 AM
  8. khengsiong said...

    It sounds like your rafter had done a good job!

    So you nearly lost your photos? Which is why I prefer to use two 2G cards rather than one 4G card. At least I won't lose all photos.

    October 23, 2009 at 11:16 AM
  9. kenwooi said...

    love the view there..
    and your toe.. ouch! >.<

    cheahs@n, congrats for being FC here today! : )

    What thumb? It's my toe! : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:36 PM
  11. foongpc said...

    robo, thanks! Yes, lucky my camera did not fall into the water as well, otherwise I would probably have no photos to show! : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:37 PM
  12. Mei Teng said...

    The bamboo rafts seemed like a fun ride but somehow, I don't think it's safe for those carrying expensive camera equipment coz you literally have nothing to shield you from the waters.

    And wow with your leg and toe bleeding, you still had the time to snap photos..haha. The rafter should have warned you guys when getting off the raft.

    And yes, I agree with KS. Don't use one large memory card. Buy several in 2GBs each. If one is gone, at least you still have the rest as keepers.

    I like the first photo and that's one nice place for having lunch.

    October 23, 2009 at 1:38 PM
  13. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, thankfully the cuts weren't very deep. But it was painful for the next few days and when I got back to Malaysia, it was all blue black on the back of my left leg and thigh.

    Yeah, I think there was no tap water at the place where we ate. They were using river water and we saw people wash clothes upstream and probably that cute little boy I saw at the start of our journey shitted in the river too!

    What thumb? No thumb, it's my toe! : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:46 PM
  14. foongpc said...

    borneo falcon, maybe he had the experience before? : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:47 PM
  15. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, yes I am really thankful to my rafter, some more he carried me back to my raft! : )

    Oh, now I learn a lesson. Always carry two 2G cards instead of a bigger size card. Thanks for the advice!

    October 23, 2009 at 1:50 PM
  16. foongpc said...

    kenwooi, yeah it's really nice view there. And yes, ouch for my toe : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:51 PM
  17. [SK] said...

    ouch!! that must be painful.. but luckily you didn't drop into the deep water and your camera was safe.. why so not careful, did you slip??

    October 23, 2009 at 1:53 PM
  18. [SK] said...

    anyway, as long as you are safe and sound that is ok lah.. you got nice sceneries to see and fresh air to breath and nice food to eat.. :p

    October 23, 2009 at 1:54 PM
  19. foongpc said...

    mei teng, well I still have to bring my camera to take photos! It's not too bad cos as long as I don't fall into the water, my camera won't get wet. Besides, mine is not an expensive DSLR. Hehe.

    Yeah, I actually didn't even know I was injured initially - so busy checking the camera to see if it got wet! And then when I knew, I quickly asked Jam to take photos of my injured leg. Haha! That's the blogger in me. Blogging more important than any injuries : )

    October 23, 2009 at 1:55 PM
  20. foongpc said...

    SK, yes I slipped. Maybe I was busy looking at the beautiful farmland and was not looking at where I was stepping!

    Haha, yes all the nice sceneries and fresh air and good food more than make up for it : )

    October 23, 2009 at 2:01 PM
  21. CheaHS@n said...

    Xie-xie looking forward for your next post on 'PingXing', erh wait is it 'PingPing' no it's 'XingXing' right? Aiyaaaa whatever since you are "LOST" & I'm equally lost anything that sounds Ping or Xing will do:P

    aiyooo...nothing is worse than hurting urself on a holiday....so chaam but thank you lar still supply us with so many beautiful pics even though injured oredi hahaha.....i also love pics showing clear reflection....:)

    October 23, 2009 at 4:23 PM
  23. bluedreamer27 said...

    wow that was an amazing rafting adventure.... however, i hope those wounds will heal fast.. those dishes looks so great... i like the last picture of vegetables (What kind of veggies are those?)

    October 23, 2009 at 4:30 PM
  24. Willie said...

    Geee...I feel sorry for your accident. After your body was half wet, did you have to change your shirt? or just continue the journey with your wet pants? Luckily the rafter knows what to do with your toes. I hope it has healed few days later.

    Among all the food served, I like the bamboo shoot. It's my favourite food.

    October 23, 2009 at 4:44 PM
  25. Che-Cheh said...

    The pict that Jam shot at your bleeding toe is scary looking. Your shot is oklah. Now I can see clearly the herbs used.

    October 23, 2009 at 6:07 PM
  26. wenn said...

    wow..quite an adventure..

    October 23, 2009 at 7:31 PM
  27. day-dreamer said...

    Ouch! It must have sucked to have gotten hurt during a trip...

    p/s: Nice sceneries...

    October 23, 2009 at 9:15 PM
  28. Rose Belle said...

    Wow, the scenery is stunning! I live in the city and when I see nature scenery as these, it really makes me want to leave the city and move to a peaceful place like here. Fear of accidents is the number one reason I always bring a first aid kit anytime I travel. You could have hurt yourself much worse but yeah, it must of been scary at the moment. You captured some really good shots of the landscape by the way. Good job!

    October 24, 2009 at 4:22 AM
  29. Ai Shiang said...

    The view is just so breathtaking, isn't it? It's so green, the air must "taste" fresh in the morning.

    I wonder how it looks like if shots are taken at dusk/night. Are there any street lights? I can't seem to see any.

    October 24, 2009 at 6:19 AM
  30. Ai Shiang said...

    Oh! I hope your leg and toe are better now.

    October 24, 2009 at 6:20 AM
  31. Ayie said...

    oh my that's a nasty fall foong but i understand why you kept checking your cam...i think I'll do the same! hahaha! Good thing your rafter knows how to give you first aid and he's nice enough to carry you! weee! you can note this in your life, being carried again!

    I remember when I got accident in scooter and I skid...the first thing i asked was if the scoot is ok. I was worried because it's my uncle's!

    that thumb loooking hill really looks like an OK thumb! hehe

    happy weekend!

    October 24, 2009 at 7:18 AM
  32. Ayie said...

    again, you have snapped great shots!

  35. EastCoastLife said...

    Very scenic views! I want to see them for myself.

    Sorry about your injury. It must have hurt a lot.

    October 24, 2009 at 2:06 PM
  36. EastCoastLife said...

    It's so nice of the rafter to carry you on his back. I do meet some very kind folks when I was in China. The good people are very helpful.

    October 24, 2009 at 2:06 PM
  37. EastCoastLife said...

    Glad you are back in one piece. :P

    Have a lovely weekend!

    October 24, 2009 at 2:07 PM
  38. CheaHS@n said...

    Aah yeah agree with Dolly confirmed foongpc is a guy haha. That reminds me of foongpc's comment in my blog about 'Charlie's Angels' with a question [did the Angels get to "see" Charlie face to face?]. Good point - answer is NO. So we have a "foongpc aka Charlie" replica except for 'Witch, Saucer & Jam' can safely say all bloggers have never seen 'the man himself' except his toe and sexy thigh. Follow closely we might be able to see more hands, arms or neck in future. lol

  39. Tekkaus said...

    Why don't you create a slideshow so that all of us can view it together? :p

    October 24, 2009 at 3:07 PM
  40. Tekkaus said...

    Wow! That is really a lot of Bamboo rafts alright. :) And the umbrella really..er...dents the gorgeous scenery. :(

    October 24, 2009 at 3:08 PM
  41. Tekkaus said...

    So it was the rafter's fault I see. He asked you to got down lar. So you gotta blame the irrigation system lor. :D

    October 24, 2009 at 3:10 PM
  42. Bubbles...ooo said...

    Aha....u r in China n u read my blog. True? Ask the mainland Chinese, okay? BTW, sorry about your fall. Do be careful and enjoy. All the best.

    October 24, 2009 at 3:12 PM
  43. Tekkaus said...

    You fell so hard and the only thing you cared back then was your camera? :(

    OMG! The cut look nasty. :( Even your toe got injured too? Poor Foong.

    October 24, 2009 at 3:14 PM
  44. Tekkaus said...

    Thank goodness there was the herb to stop your bleeding huh!

    Wow! Your rafter carried you around? he must be pretty strong huh! :D

    October 24, 2009 at 3:16 PM
  45. Tekkaus said...

    War..the water wheel looked very..er....nice and lousy. LOL :D

    The foods looked just like what I cooked. Ha:) Just kidding. But i'm sure you are glad to have that rest right?

    October 24, 2009 at 3:18 PM
  46. Tekkaus said...

    Thanks for sharing bro. Now only we knew what happened to you. :)

    Anyway have a nice weekend.

    October 24, 2009 at 3:19 PM
  47. Shingo T said...

    Ouch, the cut was bad.

    Your rafter is so nice, did you tip him?

    October 24, 2009 at 4:06 PM
  48. jam said...

    You surprised me when you kept asking me whether your camera is ok or not. You should have worried about your injury than your camera, my friend.

    October 24, 2009 at 10:01 PM
  49. coolingstar9 said...

    foongpc,
    From the description and the photos, we can see how beautiful the sceneries like river,hill,raft,etc.
    Surely this was the wonderful travel experience for you. Sad to hear that you also having the " painful experience ". Luckily, just the small injuries and hope it wouldn't stop you from next travel.
    Thanks for the nice travel post, have the nice day.

    October 24, 2009 at 10:07 PM
  50. lina said...

    hahaha!!! Get extra "nutrients" from the shit upriver in your food.

    When I was small, and we had to depend on the river in my grandma's village, there was a few times when we were bathing and saw shit floted by. OMG! That was so gross when I think about it now. LOL

    October 24, 2009 at 10:56 PM
  51. lina said...

    Eeek! That toe of yours, with blood all over sure looks painful.

    October 24, 2009 at 10:57 PM
  52. lina said...

    And lucky your camera came out unharmed during the accident.

    I was pretty devastated when my old sony camera went dipping with me at a waterfall. Luckily the memory card went unscathed.

    October 24, 2009 at 11:00 PM
  53. eiling lim said...

    Hope your leg is ok now. Wah so hairy one! haha...

    October 25, 2009 at 10:05 PM
  54. HappySurfer said...

    Awesome pictures, Foong. They remind me of the Hkg series that just ended - something about a Herbalist. Perhaps it was shot in this part of China too.

    Thanks for taking the trouble in sharing the beauty, Foong. Much appreciated.

    October 25, 2009 at 11:54 PM

    cheahs@n, haha it's Xingping : )

    October 25, 2009 at 11:59 PM
  56. HappySurfer said...

    Whoa! that toe looks bad but glad it's all over. Is it totally healed now? Show picture?

    Hey, that picture of your leg looks kinda 'obscene' wor. Oops! Sorry, imagination running wild. hehe..

    October 26, 2009 at 12:07 AM
  57. foongpc said...

    manglish, well I was not seriously injured, still could take photos, haha!

    Hey, you are online! Wow! What a timing! Hi! *waves hand - as if you can see me..* haha..

    The water wheel looks cool - so like the ones we see in movies.

    October 26, 2009 at 12:12 AM
  60. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, thanks! It's already completely healed now but there's a scar on my left leg : (

    What's the vegetables called? Err... not very sure : p

    October 26, 2009 at 12:13 AM
  61. foongpc said...

    willie, no didn't change my clothes, just continued in my wet pants. But somehow I didn't feel the wetness, maybe it dried up pretty quick, haha.

    Yes, thanks to the kind rafter! My injuries took more than a week to heal completely! : (

    You like the bamboo shoot? I found it OK only, not my favourite food : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:18 AM
  62. HappySurfer said...

    The beggar duck dish looks nice - different. Was it just plain fried or roasted? Normally beggar chicken is cooked with herbs.

    How was the veg dish? Kangkong? Don't look too good, eh?

    October 26, 2009 at 12:18 AM
  63. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, maybe my photo of my toes does not look scary because I cleared up most of the herbs. Haha! : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:20 AM
  64. HappySurfer said...

    That 'thumb' mountain is really sticking out like a sore thumb. hehe.. kinda nice though breaking the monotony.

    October 26, 2009 at 12:21 AM
  65. foongpc said...

    wenn, yeah it was quite an adventure for me! : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:22 AM
  66. foongpc said...

    day-dreamer, well, it's not really that bad! Luckily I was not hurt too badly so still managed to enjoy the rest of my holidays in China! : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:23 AM
  67. HappySurfer said...

    That Gongnong Bridge is very nice. Would you know whether it's an interpretation of Dinosaur Bridge? Just curious..

    Transporting back the rafts upriver? What comes down must go up too, eh?

    Thanks again, Foong, for the adventures. What's next?

    October 26, 2009 at 12:25 AM
  68. foongpc said...

    rose belle, thanks! Yes, should bring a first aid kit next time I travel! Thanks for dropping by! : )

  69. foongpc said...

    ai shiang, yes it's breathtaking. Not sure how it would look like in the evening/dusk. Probably just as beautiful or maybe even more beautiful! : )

    Just to give Tekkaus a run for his money. haha..

    ai shiang, my toes and leg are completely healed now although there's still a scar on my left leg : (

    But it won't be long before he catches up.

    I'm off to hang out somewhere else. Good night, Foong.

  74. foongpc said...

    ayie, yes it's nice of my rafter to carry me, haha! I will remember being carried for the first time in my adult life! : )

    Yeah, more worried about my camera than myself! LOL! So you were more worried about the scooter than yourself? Haha.

    Ooh, it's thumbs up! LOL! : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:34 AM
  75. foongpc said...

    dolly, aha! Now you know! : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:36 AM
  76. foongpc said...

    eastcoastlife, you must go there and see the beautiful view for yourself cos I don't think my photos do justice to the real thing!

    Yes, I'm very thankful to my kind rafter. I guess we should not generalise about people in certain places. There are good and bad people in China and in fact, anywhere.

    It was painful but not too painful so I still managed to enjoy the rest of my trip in China : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:41 AM
  77. foongpc said...

    cheahs@n, haha! There are more bloggers who had seen me already but I didn't mention in my blog. Well, I don't mind being Charlie but where are my angels? : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:43 AM
  78. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, actually yeah can create a slideshow. Maybe next time : )

    It's nobody's fault. Actually it's my fault for not heeding my feng shui master's advice. LOL!

    Yes, I cared about my camera more than my injuries! I guess I would be very disappointed if I lost all my photos!

    Yes, lucky there are herbs to stop the bleeding. This is the beauty of nature! And the rafter is pretty strong to carry me, but then again I am not that heavy! ; )

    The water wheel looked very nice and lousy? What do you mean? I'm sure you can cook something like that, can't you? : )

    October 26, 2009 at 12:48 AM

    bubbles, thanks for dropping by! No, I am now back in Malaysia but blogging about my trip in China : )

    shingo T, no didn't tip my rafter but 'belanja' both rafters to a lunch : )

    jam, haha! Maybe I should, but I was really worried about my camera more than anything else at that time. Didn't even know I was injured until I saw the bleeding! Then only felt the pain. It's funny right, how the pain only came after I realise I was injured? : )

    coolingstar9, yes it's a very wonderful experience for me even with the accident and all, and no, that won't stop me from traveling or going for another round of river rafting on Yulong river! : )

    lina, I guess we were not used to such living condition - bathing, drinking and shitting all at the same river! Haha!

    Oh you were lucky that your camera got wet but the memory card was not damaged! I was so worried about my camera that I didn't even notice I was injured until later : )

    The Herbalist? I think I've seen that series before if not mistaken. Yes, the scenes may have been shot at Yulong River : )

    Yeah, I'm online and as I typed my reply, I can see your comments coming in at the same time! Haha!

    No, not battling with Tekkaus. Just in the mood for spamming afterall this is such a long and interesting post with lots of things to spam about. Anyway, I've been top commentator before along with some others. Looking forward to the next part of your adventure. So when do we read about Angkor Wat. Eh?

    That really hurts...Did the herb do miracle?
    I like the toilet colour and the view from the room. I can sit in front of the window with this type of view for hours.

    For goodness sake, all the while I thought you were a girl. I think I associated your surname "Foong" with that of my Chemistry teacher. LOL! Anyway, have a speedy recovery and you look like you're enjoying every bit of your China trip. ;)
