This unique landscape conjures up the true spirit of China, and has inspired Chinese artists for centuries, forming the core of their aesthetic culture. The splendid limestone karsts rise thousands of feet above the Li River Valley, creating layers of mystery as far as the eye can see.
In the Spring time, humid air builds from the oncoming monsoon and morning fog is common, with the “sea of cloud” adding further layers of abstraction to this already stunning landscape. Of course, to get above the fog requires some effort to climb high on one of the karsts, but just rewards await those committed enough to make the steep ascent.
On this trip we will be focussing on both the landscape and the local culture, one aspect of which is the fisherman’s use of Cormorants to fish the rivers.

2 days Yangshuo Extension – 6th – 8th May 2017
USD $600 per person – USD $30 per sunrise for one porter carry your camera bag and tripod
High Activity – To get the bend of the river, some steep hiking (40-60 minutes) on narrow and occasionally exposed trails is necessary. You should be fit and confident enough to carry your full camera bag, tripod, snacks and water for up to an hour on a steep mountain trail. The ascent will also be in the dark – but it’s so worth it! We will also find time for night photography if we have good clear weather.
