Yellow Cloth Shoal is situated about 0.5 kilometers from the Hills while travelling down along the Li River. There is a large cream colored flagstone which lies under the water and look like the piece of new yellow cloth which is extended on the riverbed. That is why this river has got it name like this.

You will also see a stone on the west bank which looks like the women holding a baby in her arms and this scene is called Lady-in-waiting Holding the Crown Prince.
There are seven elegant peaks which stand on the both of the side of the shoal stand and they are having different size and height. They were known as the Seven Fairy Maidens Descending to the World. It is a legend that seven fairy maidens have travelled to the Li River and they were very much attracted by the unique scenery. They lingered to stay here and even though the Jade emperor had ordered them to return to the heaven. They however, preferred to turn themselves into the mountain peak for obeying his order.
