Ready to start your adventure?

Drop us a line today and we'll get you set up with a bike and cycling towards a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

On the first day, our guide will pick you up at the Guilin airport and you’ll take a bus to Yangshuo and spend the afternoon sampling street snacks, taking in the stunning view, and eating more delicious street foods before heading to the Liu Sanjie Lightshow in the evening.

The next morning, you’ll cycle along the Yulong River and through the quaint villages that have sprung up along it.  Then you’ll take a 2-hour raft tour down to the Gongnong Bridge, surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks and rice fields. You’ll then continue your adventure and cycle to Moon Hill, where you’ll enjoy a breathtaking view once you’ve climbed to the top (about 40 minutes of hiking), and enjoy a delicious meal in the Moon Hill Café.

The following day, you’ll take a boat cruise on the Li River to Liugong Ancient Village, where you’ll enjoy the scenic view and get lost in the old alleys. You’ll then transfer back to Yangshuo, enjoy a delicious meal, and transfer to a Zhuang Minority Village, where you’ll stay in a traditional (but renovated!) wooden hotel.

The next morning you’ll hike through rice paddies to the No. 1 and No. 2 scenic spots, before transferring to a Dong Minority Village in the afternoon. You’ll spend the rest of the day exploring the village and stay in a guesthouse.

On the fifth day, you’ll visit the Dong Drum Towers and the more than 1,000 year old Wind and Rain Bridges before transferring to Zhaoxing village, one of the best preserved minority villages in the region.

The next day is all about hiking! You’ll spend the morning hiking around the Tangan Village, and the afternoon hiking in the Jitang Village.

Your last full day will be spent exploring the Xioahuang Mintority Village and Biasha Miao Village. In Biasha it’s best to ask people if you can take a photo, since some here believe that it is a way of stealing someone’s soul! You’ll spend the night in Congjiang City, before transferring back to Guilin the next morning and flying home.
