Flowing through Guilin City to Yangshuo, the Li River runs past Xingping. The karst scenery along the Li River section of Xingping is acclaimed the most stunning along the Li River.
The Li River section of Xinping offers Nine-horse Fresco Hill, Reflection of Yellow Cloth Shoal, – the background of 20 yuan note and Chaoban Hill, etc to enjoy. The private Li River motorized raft can take tourists to appreciate the beauty between Xingping and Nine-horse Fresco Hill. If the surface and the karst hills around are covered with fog, you may feel that you were in a fairy land. It is great for those who don’t want to share space with strangers but one raft can just accommodate 4 passengers. In addition, children under 1.2m tall (1.2m tall not included), pregnant women and the elder above 70 years old (70 years old included) are not permitted to take it out of safety concerns. And if the water level in the river breaches a set level, the private Li River motorized raft will usually be canceled.
The Li River section of Xingping also features amazing sunset to admire. Reflection of Yellow Cloth Shoal and some other karst hills offer great background to the sunset. If you are keen on photographing, it is suggested that you invite a cormorant fisherman and his cormorants to make for stunning views for you.
The Li River section of Xingping is also great for hiking and cycling. You could not only enjoy the breathtaking views but also can experience local life en-route, seeing locals enjoying their day through doing some farming activities if you are lucky enough.
