Putting in at the ancient town of Fuli near Mushan, paddle your way South down the Li River to Puyi. Although the limestone towers are not as dramatic as between Xingping and Yangdi, this section of the Li River is beautifully serene with little traffic. It is also an excellent vantage point from which to see riverside rural life as fisherman look after their nets and farmers let their water buffalo out too cool off in the river’s shallows.
The paddle tour takes around three hours but you can break it up by stopping in Liugong where you can have lunch and explore this ancient river village.
When you arrive in Puyi, will have a driver waiting for you on the embankment. He will drive you into Puyi town where you can get a local bus that brings you back to Yangshuo. The whole trip can be organized at the Yangshuo Village Inn , but it is worth noting that the this river trip can be quite tiring and is better suited for fit people.
