Hiking in the Other Side of the World - Stunning Landscapes of Guilin

-- 6 Days Guilin In-depth Hiking Tour

I’m from Canada and love nature, trekking and scenery. My brother and I were very satisfied with China Discovery’s private 6-day guided tour of Guilin. The service was professional, friendly and well coordinated. The experience gives foreign visitors a taste of local foods and customs in China that we wouldn’t otherwise get to experience. Not to mention the scenery in Guilin and surrounding area is uniquely stunning-- Quoted from TripAdvisor

Itinerary introduced by Lily

Hello, I am Lily, China Discovery’s travel consultant. I arranged Ben and his brother Micaiah Guilin tour in September. It is one of best seasons for Guilin tour. Ben contacted me at the end of August and booked the tour later. Although we found a little timing conflict on flight schedules, I quickly changed the itinerary accordingly. As everything was ready, they set off for their journey scheduled.

A 6-day In-depth Guilin tour just needs one easy click and all they need to do in Guilin is to enjoy the spectacular Chinese view. Come with Ben and Micaiah to enjoy one Guilin tour.

Layers of Green Terraces

Along the way they indulged one of the most spectacular views: primitive minority villages are surrounded by endless layers of golden and green terraced fields, which are tenacious climbing the hillsides. On the top of mountain laid soft fleecy clouds. When the cloud has been drifted away, they saw clear blue sky.

Day 4  Sightseeing Cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo

It was a relaxing day that Ben and Micaiah took a sightseeing cruise along the Li River from Mopanshan Pier to Yangshuo Town.

The 84-kilometer cruise offered them a sense of travelling in an endless Chinese painting. Green mountains stood while cattle leisurely walked along the winding riverside.

After about 4 hours' cruise, Ben and Micaiah arrived at Yangshuo town. This evening they had a peaceful time in West Street and a delicious dinner at a local restaurant.

After lunch they returned to Guilin for a city tour. The first stop was the symbol of Guilin landscape - Elephant Trunk Hill. A giant rock hill vividly shapes like an elephant. The second stop was Reed Flute Cave, a majestic underground palace with sparkling different colors.
