The most beautiful scenes of Guilin scenery are found along theLi-River.The hills beyond hills with their reflections in the crystal water are like fairy land, the green bamboo greets you all the way along the river in the breeze; the water buffaloes eating grass casually; the ducks swimming along the river; the fisherman fishing or catnapping on the bamboo rafts with his cormorants resting peacefully next to him, it’s God dotted landscape. "Serenity" is a word poet triedto describe, "story-book-mountains" is kids say about the hills.Chinese traditional paintings are what Chinese artists have been trying to depict the scenery for thousands of years. But the natural beauty of the Li-River is indeed beyond any descriptions, you have tobe there to see with your own eyes and to feel with your own heart.

The Li River is famous for its beauty of four unique parts: verdant mountains, fragrant waters, mysterious grottoes, and exquisite rocks.Along the river, there are deep pools, dangerous shoals, murmuring springs, and roaring waterfalls. Going downstream in a tourist boat,one can enjoy spectacular views of crowded towering peaks along theriverbanks, waterfalls suspending over forests of rocks, and their crashing sprays upon jutting rocks. What one marvels at most is the Picture Cliff. It’s endowed by nature’s uncanny workmanship, with asmooth flat surface. Seen from a distant boat, due to the interplay of various shades of brilliant colors upon it, the surface looked as if painted with a picture of faintly discernible 9 houses. On the crest of the peak, poised a colossal "steed", rearing its head and neighing,while by its side two "Colts" were grazing. One can see " TheAvant-garde Horse" on the summit of Yuwei Peak and "The Horse FallingBehind" on Mahuang Mountain.

The Li River with crystal-clear waters twists and turns between magnificent and beautiful mountains. Its banks are covered with lush bamboo and luxuriantly green woods.
