If Guilin is a living entity, the Li River is absolute soul. Originated from Mao’er Mountain, Li River starts its journey from Guilin down to Yangshuo, just like a jade ribbon winding among the green hills to form a most poetic beauty spot. The reflection of the fantastic karst peaks in the water, the cowboys, the fishermen at leisure and the simple households along its banks are mesmerizing. The section from Xingping Town to Yangdi is the highlight of this magnificent picture scroll. While cruising down the river, you will see Ox Gorge, a narrow gorge and Wangfu Rock, a stone in the shape of an ancient Chinese.
