The 3 Day Yangshuo Escape Tour will commence by meeting at your Yangshuo Hotel in the Yangshuo countryside or town. The meeting time is typically 9:00 am but being a private tour, there is flexibility with start time with the possibility of starting the day earlier or later in the morning. When you complete the tour booking, please advise of your preferred time to commence the private day tour and this can be accommodated.
The first stop on the tour is the Yulong Valley where visitors can either choose a hiking route around this picturesque valley or to cycle (additional fee for bicycle rental). The valley itself is surrounded by rural scenery, the winding Yulong River and spectacular karst mountains.
