TOUR ITINERARY

Tour code:
GWAC-GL-03
Day Activities Hotel
DAY 01 arrive in Guilin (D)

You will fly to Guilin, which is located in Guangxi province of southern China. Famous people and poets down through the centuries have eulogized Guilin’s scenery. It really has to be seen to be believed. The mountains are so sheer they come vertically out of the ground, as Guilin has some of the most spectacular karst topography in the world. The tooth-like limestone mountains come in clusters, or as isolated monoliths or mesas, often with caves, and sometimes with holes all the way through, like Elephant Hill and Moon Hill in Yangshuo.

Upon your arrival at the airport you will be met by your English-speaking guide, and from there we’ll get started on your touring with a visit to the Reed Flute Cave. The Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan) is a fascinating gallery of natural sculpture (limestone cave formations), now enhanced by multicolored lighting, which has been one of Guilin’s many interesting attractions for over 1200 years. It rates as one of the top four tourist sites in the city. The cave is about 240 meters long and a tour lasts about one hour. Along the u-shaped route, you will have ample time see the oddly shaped rocks and stone pillars while the guide narrates interesting stories about them. Illuminated by the colored lights, the cave looks like a dazzling underground palace. That’s why the cave is also known as the Nature’s Art Palace.

Then it is off to the Elephant Trunk Hill, a major landmark of the city. Located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River in the south central area of Guilin City, it looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin and its karst landscape.

3 or 4 star for common; 5 star for deluxe
DAY 02 Guilin-Longsheng (B, L, D)

After breakfast in the hotel we will make the 2-hour drive to visit the Longji rice terraces in Longsheng. The Longji Terraced fields (also known as the Devil’s Backbone), were first built in the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368 AD) and completed in the Qing dynasty (1644-1911 AD) by the Zhuang people. The terraced fields are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountaintop, with the highest place of an elevation of 885m and the lowest 380m.

The town of Longsheng is situated in a densely forested area of over 2400 square kilometers and has a population of only 160,000 people, with many of them from the Miao, Dong, and Zhuang ethnic minorities. It is surrounded by mountains in four sides and lies 100 kilometers north of Guilin, as well as in the joint area of Heping River and Sang River. Built on the mountain slopes, the town boasts rows of tall buildings separated by banyan trees.

After your visit to the fields you’ll get to spend some time with some of the local villagers in the area who come from the minority cultures (like the Zhuang and Yao). You’ll get to experience and learn a little something about them, and maybe they’ll get to learn a little something about you! For the night we will stay at a hostel in Longsheng.
