We are facing an 8km climb before rewarded with downhlls and cycling on flat. The van will leave us after arriving the starting point for today's cycle, we will see it again after 2 days. Therefore we will need to carry simple luggage and necessities for today and tomorrow. 

Cycling to the remote village in Guilin and Yangshuo

The huge water cave and less-visited village will be our final destination today. The cave has very poor rooms and we are going to stay overnight there in some basic tent but the wooden houses and peaceful world there makes you feel back to 1980's. The cave is one of the highlights during the whole trip. The water cave looks like a huge rocky bridge therefore it was named as the Natural Bridge, it is one of the biggest Karst landform chained caves in Asia, it is popular among local Chinese hikers and local people living nearby. Lot of photos will be taken and you don't want to back to the bike again after our arrivals. If we are lucky enough, we will meet the master of the hotel owner there, he can use the 60KG weight Crescent Blade and like normal stick under his Chinese Qigong, we can only try to move it! It will be a unique experience you can't get from elsewhere even with more money!

Day 3 Water Cave Area- Caoping Town around 70KM  (B,L,D) 

Today's trip is easier than yesterday, the whole route is slow down hill with some small and short climb.The road flat or undulating, passing by the north part of Li River, canals,  wild mountains and valleys. Our bike trip today also covers the peaceful river and dams hidden in the 'back garden areas of Guilin city'. The greenway paved along the Li River will lead us to our hotel, it will be a colorful cycling experience during your whole life. 

Water buffalos on the cycling green way

The distance today is over 60KM but it's not hard as we are mainly on flat or slightly downhill on road lately built or rebuilt so the difficulty is less. We will pass by small rivers and the Li River and Daxu ancient town, cycling along the bike way along Li River and finally arrive the Caoping town - where one of the best inner Karst Cave visit is available as an option .On the way to our hotel, crops like corn, sweet potato are easily to be found along the country road. We cycle slightly downhill while sometimes we have to climb up again passing along small rivers and Karst hills. Some of the road section today is affected a little by the cars as they need to transfer fruit and crops between Guilin and the farmland. Some of the areas we cycle today are famous for the gingko trees; lot of local people will drive their cars and have fun there every late autumn and early winter.
