The Li River (Lí Jiāng) is the main river of Guilin Prefecture, Northeast Guangxi. Originating from Kitten Mountain (Mao’er Shan), the Li River winds its way south for 437 km (272 miles). The 83-kilometer-long (52-mile-long) section between Guilin and Yangshuo is the most beautiful part.
The landscape is decorated with startling hills, steep cliffs, fantastic caves and farming villages, and is lined with bamboo groves.
A Li River cruise from Guilin to Yangshuo is one of the most popular activities in the region.
