Biking in Yangshuo

By Viator, November 2013

No reviews, be the first!

With relatively flat roads winding through the towering limestone karsts along the banks of sleepy rivers, Yangshuo seems make for biking. As one of the most popular bases for biking in all of China, Yangshuo has a little bit of something for everyone, from short, beginner-friendly routes to multi-day adventures further afield.

One of the most popular routes allows you to peddle past many of Yangshuo’s best attractions. Starting in the city, you’ll make a 12-mile (20-kilometer) loop past the Big Banyan tree, Moon Hill, Jianshan Temple and along the Tian Jia River back to Yangshuo. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the whole day exploring the rural countryside around town, and be sure to pull over somewhere to see the sunset light up the karst formations.

The province is very safe, so feel free to forge your own path or sign up for a guided small-group bike tour to visit some off-the-beaten-path areas of the region.

Travelers looking for something a bit more adventurous will love Yangshuo for its wealth of adventure sports. Try several of them on a 5-day Yangshuo Bike Adventure that includes daily moderate bike rides with stops for rock climbing, rafting, hiking and kayaking along the way.

Your biking adventures needn’t be limited to Yangshuo. On a 7-day Yangshuo Bike Adventure, you’ll get to see the highlights of Guangxi Province from the saddle, including the photogenic Longji Rice Terraces, the city of Guilin, the Li River, Butterfly Valley and several small villages along the river. A support vehicle will be with you the entire time, allowing you to relax and enjoy the ride.
