Bike rural China
TRAVELLERS can experience the stunning scenery and unique culture of southern China with World Expeditions new Cycle Remote South China adventure.
The 14-day itinerary takes guests through the lesser known part of the Guizhou, Hunan and Guangzi provinces, seeing up close the life of the local ethnic minority ‘hill people’. Highlights from the trip include the chance to hike through rice terraces on Longji Dragon’s Backbone, visit ancient river towns from the Ming and Qing dynasties and get up close to the incredible red sandstone of Wanfoshan Mountain.
The region is one that few outsiders get the chance to experience, with unique architecture, such as ‘wind and rain bridges’ and Chinese cuisine that comes straight from the fields you cycle past.
Cycle Remote South China includes 11 days of cycling, with a rest day in Pingan, all meals and accommodation in hotels and guesthouses, from $3,230 per person. The trip requires moderate fitness and travellers will only need to carry their daily essentials while riding, with a support vehicle carrying the rest of the luggage. For those who need a little help with their pedal power, an upgrade to an e-bike is also a possibility.
