Magical places are always beautiful and deserve to be contemplated ... Always stay on the bridge between the invisible and the visible - Paulo Coelho.
Located in the upstream of the Yulong River, the Fuli Bridge is a stone bridge that measures 30 meters long, 5 meters wide and 10 meters high and as built at the height of the Ming Dynasty around 500 years ago. It compliments its surroundings perfectly and its deep grey slabs blending in with the mighty karst mountains and the ancient trees that hang down over the river bank. It is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of Yangshuo.
From a source high in the Mao'er Mountain, the Li River sweeps south toward Guilin and into the world's imagination. Millions each year take to its waters, weaving between poetic peaks and submerged islands in search of scenery that arguably epitomizes Chinese landscape beauty.
In the world's eyes, Guilin's karst hills and jade waters are quintessential China. Images of Guilin's iconic karst peaks dignify conference rooms and lobbies across China. The use of the Li River as an emblematic subject of Chinese landscape painting received the ultimate stamp of approval when it was pressed on the 20 yuan banknote.
A lake is a landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is Earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature - Henry David Thoreau.
A dam was built on the Bin-el-Ouidane River, forming a 3,755 ha reservoir that brightens up the surrounding mountainous terrain. This impressive piece of engineering, 133m tall and 285m long at the top, produces electricity and irrigates the Tadla Plains. The road affords great views of the dam and the calm and amazingly blue waters of the lake.
