Green Lotus Peak (Bilian Feng)

Looming over West Street, it will be Green Lotus Peak that most often greets you as you step outside in the morning and watches over you while you eat breakfast. Due to its position right beside the Li River, the summit of this hill affords wonderful views both of the river and of the town of Yangshuo. But the trek up Green Lotus Peak isn’t entirely straightforward. While it’s not exactly arduous, there are some steep sections that will require some basic climbing skills.

Directions: The trail up Green Lotus Peak can be accessed from Pantao Lu, east of the intersection with West Street.
