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.

* A traveler said: "Lili was our excellent guide. Our family of five had a bit of everything, driving, rafting, walking, and cycling. Beyond the expected guidance of the places and attractions we visited, Lili opened her heart and shared with us the challenges and triumphs of life in rural China. Lili was flexible to make changes that we asked for, such as deviations to local markets, off the path of the regular tour. Lili is an avid photographer and helped us with optimizing our photos from the area. I recommend the tour and Lili."

Spend the day in the beautiful countryside town of Yangshuo, China's hidden gem. When people think of China, they still think of the big cities, it is often forgotten that there is so much natural beauty here and I would love to have the opportunity to show you that. We would spend the day exploring the individual mountains that spring up all over the countryside, made of limestone rocks and called karsts. Riding a bike through the lush green country, visiting the locals in their traditional mud house villages and climbing to the top of one of the most famous karsts in the area: Moon Hill. Then top it off with a beautiful journey down the Yulong river on a bamboo raft taking in some breathtaking scenery. These are just some of the amazing ways you could choose to spend your day.

* A traveler said: "This was a terrific trip. It can be difficult to get away from city life in China, and these guys are experts at taking you out into the Chinese countryside, to explore a more traditional way of life. The whole trip was very thoughtfully planned, from which routes we took, to where we stopped and ate, to the hostel we stayed in. If you're not a regular cyclist, make sure you wear cycling shorts, as the roads can be bumpy. But the guides are brilliant at judging the pace of the group and adjusting things accordingly. Looking forward to booking another biking trip soon."

Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable. The cable can also be used as an aid to climbing, and additional climbing aids, such as iron rungs (stemples), pegs, carved steps, and even ladders and zip lines are often provided.
