Day 4 Xingping To Xianggong Mountain or Damian Mountain Trekking(B,L)

There are lots of great hiking routes in Yangshuo Area but we think the real essence of Yangshuo hiking actually in the north of Yangshuo- Xingping to Xianggong Mountain or Damian Mountain. In the vicinity of the vast mountain, quiet and beautiful, non-touristy and every time when you climb on the way and look down you can view stunning views from the high stage. We climb up to the Xianggong Mountain or the Damian Mountain (highest mountain in Xingping area) and then look down, amazing Li River winding through the karst suddenly appearance!!!

The distance for the hiking today is about 12 km. The climb is steep but so worth it.

You also have a chance to go close to two minority groups—Zhuang and Yao nationality and enjoy their colorful tradition and custom. You need to walk up 40 minutes from the parking lot to the viewing point on the top. And the 45 minutes trekking from one viewing point to another is easy due to the flat trekking path without ups or downs. During the trekking, great view of the rice terraces can be seen along the whole way. Then walk down 30 minutes back to the village and stay one night.
