Cycling in a real fantastic picture of Kast peaks, rivers, the route today is the same one as the top cycling teams from all over the world cycled in Oct. of 2017 during the UCI WorldTour - Tour of Guangxi. The difference is that we can ride on more off-road trails, and have fun when getting closer to the rurality and nature on mountain bikes.

We will start this tour by biking from the hotel and leave Guilin from a less busy road. A section of off-road biking is included today. After some small paths and villages we will arrive at Huixian country. Continue our trip to the wetland banks then take a boat and start to enjoy the splendid scenic views. You may even climb the hill to see a complete picture of the wetland. After lunch and rest, we go on riding along the small path and villages to Yanshan town of Guilin and check in hotel for rest. If the group arrives at Yanshan town early, you can have an optional visit to the Garden Show Park of Yanshan, which is optional and charged. 

"Eyes on the heaven while body in the hell" is frequently used among mountain bikers. After achieving the big climbs through the most beautiful mountain areas along Li River, we finally arrive at Xingping through the orchards of local farmers.

Cycling

If you enjoy the peacefulness of a small town, you will like Xingping as it is less touristy compared with Yangshuo. The scenery here is so stunning that hundreds of photographers come here every year to get their best shots. In 1998, the former US president Bill Clinton came here to visit a local fishing village. After hotel checkout, we have to say goodbye to such a pretty town and then cycle into trails through mountains and villages, heading for Yangshuo. Your skill level in biking on narrower dirt tracks and off roads will be increased after today, our smiling bike guides will also give suggestions and tips to avoid the potential risks, making sure you will get a trip safe and memorable.

As usually it takes us only half day to finish the ride today, we can start late, so that you can do some optional things before leaving here, for example, doing a hike up to the top of the Laozhai hill, trying bamboo/PVC rafting on Li River to see the famous Nine Horses Fresco Hill, etc. Arrive at Fuli Ancient Town, we can walk to the river bank on an old bluestone street, visit a fan-making workshop, and spend some time at a local market.
