Follow the Yu Long River until Chao Lang village. From there make your way through small villages, bumpy roads and fields leading you to the 400 year old Yulong Bridge.

From the Yulong Bridge there are many ways back so we have listed four:

The first option takes you from the bridge to a little town nearby called Baisha. From there it is about 10 km back to Yangshuo town.

The second option is to cross the Yulong Bridge and take the dirt track heading down the river to Tongmen Hill where you can cross the river on a weir back to your hotel. This option has fantastic scenery but might take longer as the paths narrow towards the end and you may have to push the bike.

The third longer alternative takes you up river to the next much larger bridge. Cross the bridge over the river and head towards Jin Bao Town then on to Gao Tian which is south of Moon Hill. It's about 17 km from the Yulong Bridge to Gao Tian.
