Geologic Formation Nature / Park
Board a bamboo raft and take a leisurely ride on Julong Lake of Yangshuo, surrounded by arresting karst peaks. The refreshing absence of motorized traffic (banned on the river) leaves plenty of serene space in this protected environment. Trips along the river vary in length, from short 1.5-hour journeys to full trips lasting several hours. Alternatively, explore the roads for cycling that wind through the unspoiled hills and traditional villages by the riverside. The outstanding landscape even features on the 20 RMB bill, so bring along a camera.

  • Take an hour and be pooled around the lake on a bamboo raft. Fun, relaxing and much quieter than the hustling of the street vendors everywhere else in Yangshuo.  more »
