Guilin Karst landscape is the representative of Chinese landscape, and the upstream of Yulong River is a pretty but not popular program to local people. Today, we are enjoying our 3 hours field hiking along Yulong River.
We hiked by way of
Yulong Bridge - Jinlong Bridge - Fuli Bridge - Tortoise River - Phoenix Bridge (have lunch in a farm hourse near the bridge, Zhuqiao Village) - Swallow Lake (Fairyland Scenic Area)
Yulong Bridge, Fuli Bridge and Phoenix Brige are all rainbow type single arch stone bridges. Yulong Bridge was built in 1412 A.D., Fuli Bridge and Phoenix Bridge do not have exact history record, but they are all really beautiful with the landscapes and villages. It is a nice day!
