Hiking Around Guilin

GL09: 5 Days Longsheng - Guilin - Yangshuo
Day 1 Guilin - Longsheng
Our guide will pick you up from the airport according to your flight schedule and then transfer you to Longsheng directly to stay overnight at the hillside hotel. Have a good rest in the afternoon and make good preparations for tomorrow's hiking.

Meals: No meals, advice freely available
Day 2 Longsheng - Dazhai - Guilin
Hiking in Longsheng
After breakfast in the hotel, our guide will accompany you to start today's journey. Take a hiking adventure for about 5 hours from Longsheng to Jinkeng terrace fields. Along the mountain path, you can see the beauty of the terrace fields of the current season as they are quite different in each season, and also some local minority villages. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant on the way. Take bus provided by the site down to Longsheng and then our driver will drive you back to Guilin. (Tips: Clients can only take bus provided by the site to Dazhai or back from the starting point. It is not allowed to get on or off the bus midway. If you are energetic enough, we suggest you hike to Dazhai for about 5 hours single way and take bus back to Longsheng. If 5 hours is too long for you, the alternative is to take a one hour hiking from Longsheng to ancient Zhuang Minority Village and then come back the same way.) 

Meals: Western style breakfast, Lunch
Day 3 Guilin - Xianggong Hill - Xingping - Yangshuo
Yangshuo rural scenery
We will transfer you to Xianggong Hill from where your Li River hiking begins. Today's arrangement is full of interests. You will hike and take ferry boat in turns and pass several ferries and villages to reach Yangshuo finally. You will have an immersed sense by visiting the essence of the Li River and the local villages. Without doubt, the itinerary will lead you to the dreamy rural scenery where you can indulge yourself in the blue sky and crystal water. After visiting all of the highlights along the Li River, you will reach Xingping where our driver is waiting for you. Xingping is an ancient fishing village with tranquil atmosphere, modest streets, and the unsophisticated and warmhearted villagers. You may walk along the stone walkway which is covered with emerald moss to get close to the simple folkway. After that, we will drive you to Yangshuo and the guide will help you check in the hotel. You may explore the West Street and choose a good restaurant to have dinner by yourself.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Day 4 Yangshuo
We will transfer you to get close to the rural life - the villagers working in the fields with their buffalos and pieces of green rice paddies are in front of your eyes. At this moment, you will totally forget the rapid rhythm of the city and experience a carefree and relaxing life there. Afterwards, take a hiking trip along the Yulong River for about three to four hours.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Day 5 Departure from Yangshuo
Our guide and the driver will transfer you to the airport to catch your flight. Your journey will come to an end here. We hope you have enjoyed this journey with us. 

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
