Trekking And Cycling Activities In Sanjiang

Time: 2019-11-22

Chengyang Eight Villages Scenic Area, located in Sanjing county, Guangxi province, is famous for its Yongji Bridge(Wind and Rain Bridge). The eight villages, namely Ma'An Village, Ping Village, Yanzhai Village, Pingtan Village, Dong Village, Da Village, Pingpu village, and Jichang Village, are home to more than one thousand dong minoroty families. The wodden buildings, singing and dancing culture, life customs and other ancient traditions of Dong minority are well preserved there. It is located in the mid-way between Guilin and Guiyang. Now, Guilin, Sanjiang and Guiyang are connected by bullet trains, so if you are planning your trip to either of them, a visit to Sanjiang can fit perfectly into your travel plan.

There are also many other Dong minority villages nearby, which have not been developed into a scenic area yet. If you are looking for a different way to explore this area, trekking and cycling with a local English-speaking guide are highly suggested. You can choose to trek or cycle for 1-3 days, stay overnight in a hotel in Chengyang, or a local family in the villages.

All these trekking and cycling activities are organized by a guesthouse owner in Chengyang village, Sanjiang county. He is also an English-speaking guide. So, all starting and ending points of these activities are Chengyang village.
