Our guide and our driver with his van/car meet you in your hotel in Guilin city 8:30 in the morning, then drive for about 1 hour and 15 minutes (about 60 km or 37 miles) to arrive at a village name Sifang. 100 meters outside of the village, cross a rippling small river, there appears the Fuli Bridge, which is where we start hiking.
The first hiking part takes 45 minutes and we will see another ancient stone bridge, Yulong Bridge. Then walk all the way along the Yulong River for some 3-4 hours until we get to a guesthouse where lunch is suggested. The landscape and the idyllic scenery are just unbeatable!
After lunch, another section of walk of 45 minutes or 1 hour will lead us to our hiking end, Gongnong Bridge. Our driver will pick you up and get you back to you hotel in Guilin city in about 1.5 hours (please advise in advance if you move your hotel from Guilin city to Yangshuo town).
