Sightseeing: Xingping, Yangdi Village
After having breakfast, we will drive to Xingping dock where today's hiking tour start from. Xingping is an ancient town with 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.
First we will walk along Li River to Yangdi. About 4.5 hours' hiking, we will get Yangdi, a small fishing village. The landscapes there are very spectacular, elegant mountains, winding water, delicate beach, striking waterfall, dense green bamboos and dotted villages. Yangdi is also an ideal place to enjoy the misty rain of Li River, Which seems to be a wonderland, quiet, peaceful and mysterious in spring. The hiking tour finishes here. Our vehicle will pick us up and transfer us back to Yangshuo.
Day 3 Yangshuo (B, L)
Route: Yangshuo - Fuli - Liugong - Yongcun - Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Fuli Old Town, Liugong Fishing Village
After breakfast, we will cycle for 2 hours from Yangshuo to Fuli, an ancient town along the Li River with nice traditional buildings. Then we will take our bike to the ferry boat to cross the river and begin the cycle tour on local bumping trails. Route turns more difficult for bicycle riding. After another two hours riding, we will arrive at Liugong Fishing Village. Located among beautiful carst hills, Liu Gong Village's typical ancient buildings are preserved till now. There are many footpaths between farmers fields. The Main attractions here are water-flowing cave, Liugong Three-Pond, Gold Lion Drinking Water, beauty and peach Li River, Eight-immortal Dragging a Horse and the pavilion on Riverside. The water flows very smooth and safe all long year. Then we will have free time to walk around this village.
Later afternoon, we will cycle back to Yangshuo. Visit Yongcun Village on the way.
Day 4 Yangshuo (B, L)
Routes: Yangshuo - Chaoyang -Yulong River –Gaotian- Yangshuo
Sightseeing: Yulong River, Moon Hill
In the morning, we will cycle to 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.
First we will take around 1 hour biking to Chaoyang dock on Yulong River, and then we will take the bike onto the bamboo raft and have a two-hour rafting on the crystal clear river. This afternoon, we will cycle around Gaotian area and have a visit to Moon Hill on the way. 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.
Cycle back to Yangshuo.

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.

I wish to THANK YOU for making our visit to China the very positive visit that it was. The itinerary was rich with what China is all about. You kept us busy and I thank you for that.
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.

Thank you very much for your letter, I really enjoyed my tour in Xian despite of the high temperature. In this context, it was helpful to have a transportation with air conditioning, thanks you also for the bottle of water, I suggest you to have the bottle of water cold and to keep them in an ice box.
The information provided by the Guide (Aria) was relevant from a historical point of view. She was kind and she tried to answer all my questions.
I also would like to suggest to include a visit to the Bell and Drum Towers in the Two Days tour.
I am attaching some pictures from the trip.
