Day 1: Guangzhou - Shaoguan (L, D)

Relax during your 1-hour journey, and on arrival, meet your local guide and travel to Danxia Mountain, a spectacular mountainous area in Guangdong Province ascribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010.

The region is famous for its natural red sandstone spires, pinnacles, pillars, and arches, many eroded into the shapes of human bodies, birds, and animals. Venture into the Danxian Geopark, and climb to Zhanglao Peak, one of the three main scenic areas. At the summit, soak in the bird’s-eye views of the surrounding rock pillars and formations, and take photos of the famous Yangyuan Rock, a stone spire that resembles a male phallus.
