The nearest airport and railway station are in Guilin, located 120 km away from Xingping. Yangsho town lies between the two and most of the tourists book their hotels here. Thara and I also did the same. The visual feast offered by Xingping can be relished to the best only if you witness the sunrise and sunsets from the banks of the river or from the rounded pinnacles of the green rolling hills. There were only two hills that you can hike on foot. That's how we finalised upon the dawn from Xianggong hill, dusk from Laozhai hill and a boat trip on Li river between the two.
