Today is a most strenuous day of biking; we will ride around 70 kms from the city of Guilin to the foot of the terraced paddies of Longsheng. For the most part we will be riding uphill but the beautiful landscape will rewards us greatly for our hard work.

After arrival, we will park our bikes at the foot of Longji and then drive to Ping'an Village where we will admire the fantastic terraced paddies on the mountains. Ping'an minority village is over 300 years old and in the wooden lodges 200 families are still living in harmony with nature. The Terraces Paddies are always so beautiful in a year. In summer the paddies are a lush green and the rice sways in the gentle breeze, in autumn they turn a golden yellow, in winter they are often blanketed in a light covering of snow and in spring the waterlogged rice fields sparkle in the sunlight. It always makes you breathtaking when standing on the top of the mountains and look down the valley.

Day 4 Guilin to Yangshuo (B, L)

Guilin to Yangshuo (B, L)

Route: Li River Cruise from Guilin to Xingping village, biking to Fuli village, biking to Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Li River Cruise, Xingping Village, Fuli Village

After breakfast, we will drive about half an hour from Guilin to the pier and then start our Li River Cruise; during the cruise, we will enjoy the green mountains and their reflections, the bamboo rafts and the cormorants standing on them.

Disembark in the 800 year old town of Xingping where we have our lunch in a local restaurant by the river and then start our 30 km ride to Yangshuo. Xingping is 63 km (39 miles) from Guilin and 25 km (15.5 miles) from Yangshuo, on the east bank of the river. The town is surrounded by enthralling scenery. Both Mural Hill and Yellow Cloth Shoal belong to this scenic area.

On the way, we will take a short stop in the village of Fuli. Fuli Town is home to Liusan Jie, the famous light show has the background from this old town which is over 1000 years. There are many old houses in the old street which you can peak into and see the simple lives there. All the traditional new years decorations which remain in town for the entire year.

Day 5 Biking in Yangshuo (B, L)

Biking in Yangshuo (B, L)

Sightseeing: Puyi Village, Moon Hill, Yulong River

Today, we will ride from the town of Yangshuo, heading along the Li River to another small village in Puyi. Located southwest of Yangshuo, Puyi is the highlight for a long distance bike lover even though it is a small old town. Cycling along the Li River via the villages of Mushan, Doutou, Li Jia, Liugong and Da Bu Tou before getting to Puyi is the good way to enjoy your day. When you get there, you can see many Ming and Qing dynasty buildings kept well still up to this day. It is also the destination for taking a kayak from Fuli.

At lunch time, we will get to the foot of Moon Hill and enjoy the local flavor over lunch with a local family. Moon Hill, named for the crescent shaped cave running through the moon. The journey up to the summit is an arduous one which covers 800 steep steps. The scenery overlooking the countryside through the half moon, however, is well worth the trek, which is probably the best you will get in the area.

Then we will cycle along the Yulong River. The Yulong River, also called Dragon River and this River Valley is said to rival Li River Scenic Area in beauty and prestige. The part of the river that stretches from Yulong Bridge in Baisha Town, to Gongnong Bridge near the Big Banyan Tree, is known as the Yulong River Scenic Area, and includes some spectacular scenic views along each river bank. The languid river is surrounded by a primitive, but pure, natural landscape, combined with green bamboo forests and rolling hills.

In the afternoon, we ride back to Yangshuo.

 

Day 6 Yangshuo Departure (B)

Transfer via: Flight on your own arrangement

Free at leisure until your guide pick up you from your hotel lobby and then transfer you to Guilin airport for your next destination.

Definitely a positive feedback for your agency, if I return to China I will definitely contact you.

Jiayuguan Fort

The tour you organized for us went very well, excellent timing and communication, even the restaurant where we stopped for lunch was very good. I want to give a special compliment to the guide Jenny, who was very well prepared, a vast vocabulary, very helpful (she also solved some small problems in our organization), nice and pleasant company. She also helped us book a show and get to the theater in Dunhuang.

Even the transport in the car was very pleasant, spacious car and comfortable driving, another compliment also to the driver.

We are back home and I just wanted to send you a note and let you know again how pleased we were with the tour package that you put together for us. It was last minute and I realize this made things more difficult for you. Everything worked out so very well!

We are back home and I just wanted to send you a note and let you know again how pleased we were with the tour package that you put together for us.  It was last minute and I realize this made things more difficult for you.  Everything worked out so very well!

All of our guides were wonderful.  We wanted to send a special letter to let you know that we were most impressed with our last guide, Mr. Yak (Tserang).  He was with us for the Tiger Leaping Gorge hike and then in Shangri La.  He was the high light of our trip!  Mr. Yak was so very helpful, knowledgable about the culture and the area and he was tremendously thoughtful and professional.  Joe and I have traveled the world quite extensively and can say that Mr. Yak was one of the best guides we have ever experienced. 

We certainly will reach out to you again when we are ready for our next trip to China.

Thank you,

Juliana Jamail

All of the local guides were outstanding. They were always very timely, right where they needed to be each and every time. Besides being punctual I found each of them to be wonderful people who represent China in such a positive way. Thank you! Thank you!!

I'm so happy that we finally got to meet each other. We worked on this adventure for about 2 1/2 years and the itinerary needed to be revised several times. I appreciate your patience and I thank you for that.

We're now friends and that will of course continue. I hope to visit both Mongolia via a tour and also, the Silk Road. Hopefully you can put together a 2 week tour itinerary for both of those places. When I visit Morocco I would like Beijing included in such a visit.

You are a delightful young woman and I'm so happy that we are friends.

My best to you Sandy.

From Saint Paul,

Your friend,

I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. The information provided by the guide was relevant from a historical point of view. She was kind and she tried to answer all my questions.
