Guilin is famous for being one of China's most attractive hiking destinations. Li River can be explored on a boat cruise, bamboo raft, or a hike along the river. The last option gives you a chance to get closer to the true Guilin and reveal more of its landscapes.
One of several possible routes runs from Yangdi Village to Yangshuo. Some of its sections may be a little dangerous, so hikers should be cautious. The best decision would be hiking in a group of three to ten people.
Guilin to Yangshuo is the most stunning section along Li River. Another advantage of this beautiful hiking route is that it is not so hard.
Hiking along Li River is the best from April to October. The sunny days allow seeing the reflections of the hills in the clear water. Whereas during cloudy days, you may get a feeling as if you were hiking or cruising in a mystical parallel universe. The period from November to March is deemed to be a low season. If you still choose that season, don't forget to put your warm clothes on!
