This cycling trail to Huajiang River covers up 55 km in one day. Youl will be companied by experienced English-speaking leader. Part of the trail is on paved road. And there will be a little challenge for a 1.5-km climb that helps cyclists to understand the glamour of cycling. We mainly cycle on the country lands along the Huajiang River, through the verdant rice paddies, and into several rural villages.

Huajiang River, approximately 16 kilometers away from downtown Guilin, winds the way for 40 kilometers and finally flow out into Li River. There are beautiful limestone peaks, rice fields, and primitive villages. Thus, this river is honored as the "back garden of Guilin".

The country roads leads us to the famous Daxu Ancient Town, where we will enjoy our time for full relax by visiting the old streets of the town. It is recommended to try the local snacks and fruits there, including strawberry, asmanthus bean jelly, etc.

After Daxu, we will have 3 options based on your wishes and healthy condition as belows:

1.  Cycle through the main road back to Guilin (18KM on the busy road with cars but flat).

2.  We cycle back to Guilin through hidden viallages and gorgours trails where riders will encouter the experience they are hard to feel in the city, acrossing the dam if the water lever is not dangerous to people, feel how does it like when cycling on off road for just a small section, bike through local villages, orchards, seeing the rice paddy, local market of Guilin, etc. It's highly recommended and a great value of your money!
