Li River Activities
Activities along the Li River
Li River offers several types of activities to experience around the year.
The Li River Cruise is usually available every day around the year. In the situation that the water level breaches a set level in the rainy season, all the cruise will be canceled out of safety security.
You could take the daily 3-star and 4-star cruise boats to appreciate the karst scenery along the river. The best Luxury Li River boat is scheduled and it is usually just available for about 10 days from November to February. During the public holidays in China, the cruise boat is always crowded with domestic Chinese passengers.
The private Li River motorized raft is another option for those who don’t want to spend around 3.5 hours on the Li River big cruise boat from Guilin to Yangshuo. In addition, the private raft offers more privacy and the passengers don’t need to share space with strangers. They also can enjoy the highlight spots between Yangdi and Nine-horse Fresco Hill or between Xingping and Nine-horse Fresco Hill.
If you love hiking along the Li River, it is suggested that you enjoy it in March, May, July, August, September, and October. It rains a little in these months that the hiking route along the river won’t be flooded. In other months, especially in June, it is possible that the hiking route will be flooded.
Cycling along the Li River is also great to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Li River. You may encounter local villagers en-route. You could ride a bike along the Li River near Xingping or Yangshuo.
If you love adventures, you could try kayaking on the Li River. Several professional travel agencies of outdoor activities in Yangshuo offer it. Alternatively, you could enjoy canoeing, or rock-climbing in the Nine-horse Fresco Hill Valley Drifting Scenic Area.
