Li River

Li River


Li RiverOriginated in Mountain Mao'er at Xin'an county northeast of Guilin, Li River winds its way southeast
for about 437 km, passing through Guilin, Yangshuo, Pingle, Zhaoping and finally meets Xi River in
Wulin. It boasts the largest and most beautiful scenic area in China and attracts thousands of
visitors.

The mountains on the banks over 40 kilometers long between Guilin and Yangshuo display their
extraordinary beauty as a result of the development of the limestone. More than 40,000 hills lie
along the two sides of the river, covering a total length of more than 150 kilometers. With their
astonishing resemblance to bamboo shoot, screen, elephant and camel, these mountains,
together with green banyans and green bamboo as well as the cottages and fishing boats,
contribute to from a scenery picture depicting a haven of peace dominated by green.

Li River meanders southward like a belt flanked by mountains and marvelous peaks. The 83-kilometer-long waterway from Guilin to Yangshuo is
especially spectacular. Cruising on this section of the river the tourist feels very poetic. The town of Xingping is located at a vend of Li River down in
the south. Cruising 13 kilometers upstream from here, the tourist will find the most beautiful scenery of Li River. The nearby mountains resemble
green screens while the remote mountains seem to be in smoky mist, and their inverted reflection in water are blackish green. Even the air seems
to have been tinged with green. Green is the essence of the beauty of Guilin.

The ride on the boat from Guilin to Yangshuo is 6 hours long and on the way there are nine sights to see. On the mountains the tourist can see
along the way, there are whiter colors from years gone by that make pictures in the mountains.

Li RiverThe Li River in Guilin is the scene of the fantastic and imaginatively shaped mountains that figure
in so many Chinese landscape paintings and are the motif of choice for many postcards.

 "The scenery of Guilin is the best in the world, and Yangshuo's scenery is the best in Guilin." This
line of description has spread for thousands of years in China. The main reason why the scenery
in Guilin and Yangshuo are so beautiful is that there is a Li River running through them. The
scenery on both sides of the Li River is beyond description.
