Yangshuo

Yangshuo Town,in Guangxi Province, the home of Terratribes, is a small picturesque Chinese village situated on the banks of the Li River. This rural and agricultural region is especially dominated by limestone karsts: steep tree covered mounds ranging from 100-300m high. Yangshuo makes the most of its natural beauty and caters well to travellers' needs by offering a variety of adventurous activities such as rock climbing, caving, and bike riding and hiking. While maintaining its traditional laid-back feel, Yangshuo has a surprisingly large international community drawn by the traditional lifestyle, stunning environment and abundance of outdoor activities.
