Fuchuan Yao Autonomous County (simplified Chinese: 富川瑶族自治县; traditional Chinese: 富川瑤族自治縣; pinyin: Fùchuān Yáozú Zìzhìxiàn) is a county of northeastern Guangxi, China. It is under the administration of Hezhou City.


Fuchuan Yao Autonomous County is located in the northeastern Guangxi, on the border with Hunan.

Most of the county is in the upper basin of the Fuchuan River (富川江), a tributary of the He River (贺江, Hejiang). The Fuchuan is dammed near the southern border of the county. The dam forms the Guishi Reservoir (Chinese: 龟石水库; pinyin: Gushi Shuiku; literally: "Turtle Stone Reservoir"), which is used to irrigate agricultural land not only in Fuchuan County itself, but also in Zhongshan County and Babu District to the south.
