Tour details

Trip Itinerary

D1 - Guests are picked up at the airport/train-station, Guilin or Yangshuo in the morning by a villager. After 1.5 hour drive through the mountains you’ll arrive at the banks of the Li-river where Langshi village is located. Your host and our local friend will be at the house to welcome you with tea, followed by a healthy local lunch. In the afternoon there will be time for exploring the village and getting to know the natural surroundings. Evening boat rides along the quiet and magnificent Li-river can be done on day 1 and/or day 2.

D2 - After a healthy western/Chinese breakfast, guests have the option to join a shepherd up into the mountains to enjoy the unique Karst scenery and be amazed by how cute goats can be :) This moderate hike takes about 3-4 hours and its highlights are: incredible karst scenery far away from tourism, tea sessions using leaves from ancient trees, story telling (in Chinese though!), monkey spotting, and plenty more. - In the afternoon guests can decide between more activities or simply enjoying the peace and quiet of the house and village life. - In the evening the village calligraphy master will come by for tea and share some of his skills. A great opportunity to learn some basic Chinese calligraphy and take some art back home.

D3 - After 2 active days enjoy a slow morning. Our house has plenty of space and opportunity for mediation, yoga, reading, contemplation and relaxation. After breakfast the village host will make sure check-out goes smoothly and arrange for transportation back to the airport/train- station, Guilin or Yangshuo.
