Yangshuo's limestone karsts

If you’ve seen the floating mountains in the movie Avatar you’ll readily recognize their inspiration: the beautiful limestone karsts of Yangshuo and Guilin. One of China’s most picturesque and tranquil regions is perfect for exploration by bicycle, and you’ll ride at a decidedly rural pace through villages nestled beneath the epic plinth peaks. Climbing to a karst-top pagoda for a more commanding view is possible too, as is a serene, finger-dangling trip up the Li River through this landscape of unique grace and beauty.
