The cycling of Guilin is far more than doing a simple and easy bicycle riding to/around Yangshuo. There are too many places worthy for a trip on your bikes, and many places are more stunning than you can imagine. We need to cycle to this village before seeing the magnificent waterfall. The waterfall is also named the pearl waterfall, as it lies down from tens of meters height hills and the water crashes to the rocks nearby and looks like tens of thousands small pearls that are falling.

Guilin has its rainy season from Feb. to June, then the river and field revives, so does the waterfall. Visitors will see a giant waterfall hidden in a wild jungle and will have an really wild trekking to see it.

Guests will meet the tour leader at 8:30 in the morning at the designated Location. After testing bikes, we start cycling out of the Guilin city from the east. After 1.5 hour cycling, we will reach Lingtian village. It is the only place for have lunch and cheap supplys. We will have a rest there.

Then we continue our bike journey to the waterfall hidden in a small village. We may need to lock our bikes before trekking into the wild forest. The trekking lasts 15-20minutes before seeing the great waterfall. The tracks for this trekking is on wild roads built with stones and mud. Please do not wear self-lock cycle shoes, as it is very slipry in rainy days.

Enjoy the silent world and the talks with the nature before going on our bike tour back to Guilin. We need to cycle back to Lingtian and change another road to the famous weekend leisure Daxu Ancient Town, passing through the popular village full of rape flowers. We will enjoy our time for full relax visiting the old street of the town. It is recommended to try the local snacks and fruits there, like strawberry, asmanthus bean jelly, etc.

After Daxu, we will take the shuttle bus for the rest route back to Guilin or cycle back.
