With its iconic limestone karst–dotted landscape and winding rivers, Yangshuo is one of the best destinations in China for outdoor adventure. A mild climate throughout the year means there’s no bad time to enjoy the rural scenery in this Southern Chinese town. Here are your best bets for outdoor activities around Yangshuo.

Biking
The rural paths and roads winding through the Guangxi countryside are surprisingly flat, making the area a favorite for cycling. A typical bike tour pedals along the Yulong River, past rice paddies and towering karsts, and through sleepy local villages.

Rock Climbing
The dramatic limestone karsts that dominate the Yangshuo landscape provide some of the best conditions for rock climbing in China. There are routes for beginners and experts alike, and even travelers with no experience can give the sport a try under the guidance of a professional climbing teacher during climbing tours.

Hiking
Hiking along the country roads surrounding Yangshuo offers an excellent opportunity to feel the pulse of local life, take in the dramatic scenery, and learn about local agriculture. For those with time to spare, a day tour to hike the picturesque Longji Rice Terraces is time well spent.

Rafting & Kayaking
The Li and Yulong rivers flow past some of Yangshuo’s most impressive scenery, including the scene on the 20 RMB note. Explore the Li River on a motorized raft or soak up the rural scenery of the Yulong River aboard a pole-propelled bamboo raft. Those who want a more active river experience than bamboo rafting or a Li River cruise can grab a paddle and kayak instead.
