Amongst dozens of karst hills, Guilin Huixian Wetland is a large underground river-fed plain in Huixian town of southwest Guilin (less known by foreigners but very worth for a visit). Now, there are 20 lakes and ponds remained in the wetland. Typically, this wetland presents an idyllic countryside scenery of rice paddies and rural villages.
Guests will meet the tour leader at 8:30 in the morning at the designated location. After testing bikes, we start cycling out of the Guilin city from the silent trails, It will take us about 45 minutes to cycle out of city area.
We continue cycling through beautiful villages, passing by lots of local farms, leisure restaurants, peaceful tracks located between the hills. We might even across the brooks and forest - everything is so close to nature.
After cycling about 45 kilometers, we arrived Mudong town, where the Huixian Wetland area locates. Usually we arrived at Mudong at around 12:30-13:30. Everyone will have a simple lunch of the famous Guilin rice noddles at Mudong (or have fastfood in small restaurant or snacks in grocery). Then we have a chance to take a rafting on the wetland rivers, it's optional and the price is from $13 - $35 per ship (3-4people available in each) based on seasons and the local policy.
After the rafting, furthur exoloring about 2 hours. There are two options for riders. Riders will disscuss and can only choose one of the following.
1. Wild Hill climbing to see the splendid panorama view of the village and wetland. It is about 6km from Mudong. This option is a risky adventure but the secnery is perfect, As the place we choose is less commercialized, this option is for free. But the hill is narraw and slipry, it is not recommended to those old, or anyone has fears of height, etc. (option 1 is not available in rainy days!)
2. Cycling from Mudong to Huixian town for simple fastfood lunch. If none of us wish to take the rafting boat, then after lunch and rest, we cycle together for another 25KM to see the less commercialized heven-alike reservoir - the Golden pheasant river reservoir, 8km from Luojin town.
