Jiulong Waterfalls (罗平九龙瀑布群), which is 22 kilometers to the northeast of Luoping County, covers the 2-kilometer-long segment of the river.

The 10 cascades in dissimilar shapes of waterfalls show exceptional grandeur, boldness, grotesqueness, or smoothness, and roars of the big waterfall are heard miles away. Therefore, the unique waterfall cluster is well known in China. Each year on the 2nd day of the 2nd lunar month, the Buyi youngsters from nearby villages would gather by the waterfall to sing love songs and look for their sweethearts.
