About this activity
Leave your hotel to drive to Xianei Village near Yangdi Town at about 8am by taking your private car or van. It takes about 1.5 hour. You firstly walk through the village and go uphill toward the Li River. The mountain paths are rough and narrow. When you see the Li River, walk downhill and take a right turn, walking along the river until you arrive at the Quanjiazhou Village. Then a 3-hour walk on the right side of the river will be followed. You will see several famous scenic spots during this part: The Apple Rock, the Xialong Scenery, the Immortal Riding on the Back of the Rooster and the Painted Hill of Nine Horses, etc. 

It's so different to appreciate the beauty of the Li River by walking from cruising. You can stop anywhere you like, spending more time there than other places. Your view angle will be higher and wider than on the boat. You see local people's life in their villages and fields along, which can sometimes bring you a nostalgic feeling of your childhood with grandparents in the country! 

After going through Laocuntou Village, there comes the Lengshui Ferry. You need cross the river by ferry boat. A 1-hour long walk on the left bank of the river (little bit away from the river) will take you to the town of Xingping. You will pass the exact spot where they took a picture and had it printed on the back of the 20-yuan Chinese currency note. Your hiking ends at Xingping Town and you will be picked up by your driver with his car or van, driving to Yangshuo (40 minutes) or keep driving back to Guilin (1.5 more hours).
