In the past few years, thousands of foreign tourists and Chinese domestic tourists have explored Xianggong Hill. The Li River runs by the bottom of the hill. Xianggong hill offers a good chance to appreciate the bird’s eye view of the river and amazing sunrise in the very early morning.
6. Cuiping Hill
Cuiping Hill is well-known for its breathtaking sunset. Plots of farmland at the foot of the hill and karst hills in the distance make for great photography materials as well. To a large extent, wisps of smoke rise continuously from the village chimneys during the sunset, which adds more charm to the views. Compared to the stone steps on the Xianggong Hill, the road on the Cuiping Hill is more difficult to walk on.
7. Silver Cave
Compared to the Reed Flute Cave, the Silver Cave in the Yangshuo countryside is more popular among Chinese domestic visitors.
However, it offers the same gorgeous stalactites as those in the Reed Flute Cave. It is recommended that you get to the cave by 10:00 am if you’d like to explore the Silver Cave.
