Multi-day cycling tour through the Guangxi countryside
The karst mountains and picturesque rivers of Guangxi are one of the most enduring images of China. You can explore this stunning region with a specilaised cycling guide on an exciting 3 day cycling adventure from Guilin to Yangshuo, travelling via Daxu Ancient Town and Xingping Village en route.
Depart from Guilin, and set off cycling towards Daxu Ancient Town. Your cycling guide will take you on a specially planned route away from the main tourist areas, through local villages and farms, and along local trails and country roads. Daxu is a well-preserved old town, and less visited than some others in the area, so makes for a fascinating rest stop. The cycling then gets more strenuous as you depart Daxu and set off on the route to Xingping Town. There is at least one significant ascent to tackle, but the scenery will reward your efforts. Stay in Xingping Village and set off the following day for Yangshuo. Here you will veer off the main roads and pass through some smaller trails and some off-road sections, giving you an insight into the countryside you would never get from an ordinary tour! The third & final day is spent cycling from Yangshuo back to Guilin. The first part of the trip will be along mostly concrete roads, running alongside the Yulong River and past Jiuxian Village. The Yulong River is quieter and more relaxing than the Li River, and you will leave the traffic and tour groups behind as you set out past Putao Town on the way to Liutang Village, where your cycling adventure will end. You will be met by your car and driver here, who will transfer you back to your hotel in Guilin by road.
It is possible to extend this tour with an extra day or two in Xingping or Yangshuo to rest and make the most of the beautiful surroundings, before continuing on the cycling journey.Back to experiences in China
