Setting off from the ancient town of Fuli near Mushan paddle your way south down the Li River to Puyi. Although the karst formations tend not to rise as dramatically from the river as between Yangdi and Xingping this stretch of river is beautifully serene with very little traffic. It is also an excellent opportunity to watch rural riverside life as fisherman maintain their nets and farmers let their water buffalo enjoy the water and reeds of the river.
The kayaking tour takes about 3 hours but can be split up with a stop in Liugong where you can have lunch and explore this 800 year old sleepy riverside village.
When you reach Puyi there will be a driver waiting for you on the shores of the river. He will take you into Puyi town where you can catch a local bus that takes you back to Yangshuo. The whole trip can be organized at the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat reception but it is worth noting that the kayaking can be quite strenuous and is better suited for sportier individuals.
