At around 1pm, we will stop to have lunch in one of the villages. We’ll then continue our way on the hiking tour for another 2 hours to Ping An village. This village has been open for tourists for a while, so there are some modern amenities. We can have dinner here and stay the night in a traditional guesthouse.

It will take 2 hours to get there from Ping An. We’ll explore the village and have lunch there. Then we can walk down to the private car at the bottom of the mountain where the road starts to go back to Yangshuo. We’ll stay the night in Yangshuo.

Day 5- We can rent bikes and cycle to the Yulong River from Yangshuo. This area has some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. Then you can take a bamboo boat down to Moon Hill which takes around 2 hours. We’ll have a late lunch in a farmhouse restaurant near Moon Hill. We’ll then cycle back along the countryside trails to Yangshuo. We’ll stay the night in Yangshuo.

We can relax and explore the town and then drive back to Yangshuo to stay the night.

Day 7- The plan for this day depends when you want to finish the hiking tour and your departure time. If it’s early we can transfer you to Guilin airport in our private car. If you have a later flight, I can suggest some different options like a cooking or tai chi class , kayaking trip , cave visit or a trip to the local market. We can then transfer you to the airport in our private car.
