Here we are on our rented bikes with our guide. She was a lady from the area who had learned to speak English on her own. She was amazing and told us stories and legends of the mountains and how they got their names. We were astounded to find that she is 50 years old. She looked about 30 and had the energy of 20.
The path deteriorated as we went because of all the rain they had been experiencing. We kept on even though we had to push the bikes part of the way.This wonderful raft ride was our reward. The scenery was gorgeous and we landed about a half hour ride from Yangshuo.
