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.

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.

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.
