  This trip will immerse you in the scenery and culture that the Guilin area is world famous for. Cycling is the ideal way to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding mountains, the appreciate the greeness of the landscape and the beaming smiles of the ethnic minorities. This trip is intended for those with little or no cycle-touring experience and will utilize vehicle transport to access some of the more remote areas where we can then cycle and explore at a leisurely pace. The tour will be supported, meaning there will be a guide and the use of a vehicle when necessary. The area around Guilin is famous for the karst landscape (limestone hill formations jutting up from an otherwise level ground and the subject of countless traditional Chinese paintings). This area is also riddled with caves used extensively by locals to hide when the Japanese invaded during World War II. After a day of acclimatisation and tour of Guilin, we head north into the countryside for some fresh air to Longsheng. Longsheng is located in an area that is known as the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces where entire mountain sides have been transformed into wedding-cake like sculptures. There are also some hot springs to relax in. The next stop at Sanjiang brings us into to one of China's many minority areas where the Dong people live. The distinctive Wind and Rain Bridges as well as the Drum Towers offer unique architectural sights that clearly identify each village. As we cycle along the road we pass bamboo waterwheels working to irrigate the rice fields. Next we will travel by vehicle to Yangshou which will provide an opportunity to explore the karst landscape, including Moon Hill, visit Confucian and Buddhist temples, various surrounding villages (possibly during market day), see the Dragon Bridges and watch the cormorant bird fishing at night with its owner. We will then head back to Guilin.
