Mainly developed at the Jurassic or Tertiary level or gently inclined red stratum to the northern part of Guangdong Province, China Danxias most typical, hence the name.

In the 1920s and 1930s, Chinese geologist Professor Feng Jinglan proposed “Danxia layer” during the investigation of Danxia Mountain in northern Guangdong; Professor Chen Guoda, Department of Geology, Sun Yat-sen University proposed the concept of “Danxia topography” and promoted the research on the Danxia topography in southern China.

In the late 1970s and early 1970s, Wu Shangshi and Zeng Zhaoxuan, Department of Geography, Sun Yat-sen University, systematically studied the red topography as an independent type of rocky landforms. Since the 1960s, especially since the 1980s, geomorphologists, Department of Geography, Sun Yat- Professor Huang Jin conducted a comprehensive and systematic study of the Danxia landform in China, conducted a field survey of more than 700 Danxia landforms in 27 provinces and cities in China, and pushed Danxia landform study to the whole country.

Guilin and the Li River Cruise

Li River Cruise

Arriving in Guilin was something magical. When we got off the plane, we were still among the clouds because that’s how we crossed the road to get to the city. We were anxious because this city would be the starting point to navigate the Li River. It is known as the Lijiang River. We would travel 83 km. from Guilin to Yangshuo. We knew it would be unforgettable.

Li River

The city of Guilin is located in the province of Guangxi, located on the west bank of the Li River or Lijiang. When you walk through the city you discover incredible places. I have read various opinions about Guilin, some did not like others at all. But for me, it had a particular charm and I enjoyed meeting it.

There is a place that I found picturesque and it is the area called the “Two Rivers and the Four Lakes”. The rivers are the Li and the Taohua (Flower of the Peach) and its lakes: the Mulong, the Guihu, the Ronghu and the Shanhu. If you love fishing, you can make a fishing trip in LI River. But be careful about safety.

Guilin also has other wonders such as, for example, the now famous “Elephant Trunk Hill” which is located right on one of the edges of the Li River. Not only will you admire her but you will also discover thousands of things around her. You can see the fishermen who are accompanied by their cormorants (waterfowl that catch fish diving underwater) to continue with an old tradition of fishing in the region or discover how barges parked on the shore are transformed into mini restaurants that result be a culinary experience if you venture to enter them.

Reed Flute Cave

Approximately 240 meters long, a cave that contains a large number of stalactites and stalagmites with very strange rock formations. This is where I was able to see one of the longest living turtles in the world to which, obviously, they told me that I should play because it would give me “good luck”.

Guilin is a city in southern China that is special because of its charm. There are markets and thousands of other places to meet. Guilin was rebuilt during the second half of the 20th century due to the bombings it received from Japan. And there is a curious fact, the Cave Reed Flute of which already mentioned, was used during the Second World War as a refuge during the bombings.

We also visited the Pearl Museum. The place that I remember with love because they gave me a pearl of this place.

And finally, I’ll start telling you about our great tour in Guilin. Early in the morning, and despite the fact that the day was cloudy and drizzling, we moved to the jetty. Upon arriving we are surprised by the number of boats that are ready to depart. Crossing a couple of boats we were able to climb ours that was halfway down the row. On this excursion we were accompanied by our guide, we were touring China on a private tour.

A luxury. And, punctually, this trip was great to do in this way because she took all the time in the world to show us all the karstic formations that we saw while navigating the Li River. Sometimes, I confess, we made the effort to imagine what she told us, but in general, the names assigned to them were fine.

As soon as we left we confirmed that we wanted to stop seeing absolutely nothing at all, my eyelids almost did not blink while sailing on the Li River. We had a reserved table on the boat but nothing helped because with Alfredo for almost the entire route we stood firm on the deck of the boat.

Every so often, small waterfalls, some caves, and pagodas appear on the banks of the river. All this makes it more picturesque and gives color to the tour on the Li River.

I was shocked to see the mastery of the inhabitants of the Li River sailing on their fragile bamboo canoes. The big surprise of the trip was when we saw our guide take a ticket out of his bag saying, urgently, that he wanted to show us something. The ticket he had taken from his purse was the 20 yuan one.

Another of the many things that caught my attention was to see that the provisions to prepare food for the passengers of the ship, delivered directly to the kitchen of the cruise while we were sailing. Direct from the Li River to our dishes. Watch this video very short and you will understand better what I just told you:

The Li River is considered one of the 15 best rivers in the world to know and this assertion is not only I say it. Also made by CNN and National Geographic qualifies the Li River as one of the world’s water wonders.

In addition

This place has been proposed, since 1996, as “Natural Good” in the Indicative List of China of the World Heritage (UNESCO).

We were coming to the end of our walk and we would have stayed much longer. It took a little over 4 hours to enjoy amazing landscapes. Our final destination was Yangshuo. I assure you that this tour of the Li River was one of the most beautiful walks I made in China. The landscapes I saw were amazing and, at the same time, surprising, only comparable to those of Halong Bay in Vietnam.


It would be a good plan to propose to know each of them. Any others that may be near the area that you inhabit and have not yet been able to know and explore because this is our innate nature, that of exploring the china that near you. Look at these amazing places and share them with your friends.
