"Get off the beaten track in rural southern China: cycle through stunning limestone karst mountains, hike the cascading Longji Rice Terraces, raft and swim in mountain streams and meet welcoming local minority people."

A twist on one of our most popular China cycling tours features one day of hiking through the beautiful rice terraces of Longji and five days days of off-the-beaten-track cycling exploring the incredible natural beauty, history and culture of Northern Guangxi. We also include a white water rafting ride, hikes to secret waterfalls and some refreshing canyoning activities, so it's most suitable for those that like to be active. You’ll find yourself cycling on quiet country roads, hiking through rural mountain villages, exploring ancient river towns, cascading down mountain ravines on a raft, dipping into waterfalls, walking through markets and feasting on local delicacies. The cycling is outstanding, with a mix of challenging hills, long flats as well as some off-road to really get you into the countryside. It's a fully supported ride with guides, mechanics and a support vehicle to allow you to relax and enjoy the experience.
