Trip Notes

1. About the Li River hiking

It's not open to travelers now, so we arrange the Meeting Dragon River hiking instead of the Li River hiking. Meeting Dragon River is one of the best areas to enjoy Guilin's Karst hills.

2. Best time to hike

Best time to hiking in Guilin is from middle of April to October especially the autumn.

3. What to see in Longji Terraced Fields

Watering the fields in Longji Terraced Fields starts every April, planting in June and harvest comes during late September. Golden terraced fields are fabulous during China’s National Day holiday. Although we don’t recommend visiting China during the period, yet it’s the best time to see and photograph the countless yellow rice terraces. The rice stalks don’t turn golden before National Day and is quickly cut after the holiday.

4. What to pack

Good walking shoes, sunglasses, sun block and hat are necessary.
