Day 1Arriving Guilin  (D)

The most convenient ways coming to Guilin from outside China is by air after international flight to Guangzhou / Hongkong, or a full day bullet train from Beijing. Our best guide shall meet you at the airport and transfer everyone to hotel. If you arrive in Guilin earlier than 3PM, we can do some testing and adapting of the bikes.As an international popular tour destination, a half day walking around the downtown of Guilin, visiting a park, or the countryside cutlural relics and beautiful landscapes will never let you down. If you are a food lover, the city also offers you the best chance to comfort your tired trip on the plane. 

Day 2Guilin-Rongjiang to Water Cave Area around 65KM / 40Mi  (B,L,D)

We will be transferred with our bikes by supporting van to Rongjiang in the morning and then hit the road on green way for bicycle around 28km.A perfect place for a lunch break at Xing'an, we can walk around the water street with over 2000 years' history. After tasting the nice food at Xing'an county, we are biking through quiet country road along peaceful reservoirs and challenged by some short climbs. We are facing an 8km climb before rewarded with downhlls and cycling on flat. The van will drive us back to the hotel at Xing'an after arriving the stoping point for today's cycle.

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. Therefore we will need to carry simple luggage and necessities for today and tomorrow, the van will leave us after bring us to the starting point of cycling tour then transfer our luggage to the hotel for next day. 

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. 

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.

Day 4Caoping-Yangdi-Yangshuo  around 53 KM  (B,L)

After about 1.5 km uphill and take a look at the peaceful small town we stay last night on the top, we will cross the river by local ferry boat then cycling along the Li river before arriving at Yangdi where we have short rest before a 2 km easy uphill. We can change cloth and get our lovely bags back in our hotel tonight!

After getting through the mountain area full of wonderful Karst landform,we will cycle along the Yulong River, this is the only river which still use man power to operate the bamboo rafts in Yangshuo area. We can stop our cycling anytime as our van will follow us all the time. The light show of LiuSanJie in the evening at Yangshuo is highly recommended after our dinner, book ahead with us please!
