Iconic image: Karst peaks along the Li River in China

Li RiverThe spectacular karst formations along the Li River in southern China constitute one of the country’s most iconic landscapes. Mists swirl around the craggy, foliage-covered hills as they rise out of rice paddies and tea plantations, recreating Chinese ink paintings in three dimensions.

We also offer our travelers scenic drives and easy bike rides through the region.
