Stop 19 - Xingping


View Overland adventures - UK to Ho Chi Minh City and back without getting on a plane! on Chloemillen92's travel map.

Our first stop back in China was a small hotel and attached organic, permaculture garden; we had organised to spend a few days there as part of a WorkAway and were helping out with general household work and making up guests' rooms etc. This was a little disappointing as it was sort of sold to us more on the permaculture side of things, something we are interested in learning a bit more about. However the setting was beautiful, food amazing and people pretty friendly so we decided to stick around.

As the hotel was busy, we were staying in tents upon the roof. This meant it was pretty warm, but did give us early morning views like those above! The scenery around Xingping is incredible.

Here you can see the mountain that the hotel and farm backed into - it was an incredibly spectacular!

After a few days at the WorkAway we spent a couple of nights in the nearby town and cycled around the area. The scenery features in the back of the 20 Yuan note!

Just a little idea of how dramatic the limestone karsts were - there were so many stars as well.
