Yangshuo (阳朔) is a fantastic venue for outdoor sports. Its located near Guilin (桂林) in Guangxi province and is easily accessible by bus, train and plain. Yangshuo and Guilin have been popular tourist destinations for many years, with thousands of visitors every month coming to see the incredible Karst Limestone towers that dominate this magnificent landscape.
Yangshuo is one of our most accessible training locations and is perfect for running short courses because of its easy accessibility, comfortable climate and low altitude.
In Yangshuo we can run training courses for:
- Team development - Corporate, University and Youth.
- Expedition training - Many of our expeditions require some prerequisite training and Yangshuo is a grate place for learning all kinds of outdoor skills in a safe and comfortable environment.
- Rock climbing
- Mountain biking
- Multi activity courses.
Accommodation is easy to find in and around the area with many different places to stay and a multitude of service standards. However if you would like to spend time enjoying the wonderful landscape away from the city without the hustle and bustle of the West Street crowds, then we like to recommend The Mountain Retreat. Both as a venue for our corporate, university and youth programs and to individuals who are looking to spend time in the nicer parts of the Yangshuo Countryside.
Travelling and outdoor sports
Yangshuo has long been on the popular tourist trail so everything from getting here, finding places to stay, finding things to eat or activities to do is easy. Even if you are the type of traveller who dose not like easy and is looking for an adventure, then it’s not far to get away into the surrounding villages and see rural life some of it still unchanged from thousands of years before; like the water buffaloes ploughing the fields and houses made of mud bricks.
If outdoor adventure is what your after then Yangshuo also offers a grate range of outdoor sports with rock climbing taking first place. Rock climbing started here in 1992 with Todd Skinner establishing the first routes at Moon Hill.

In addition to rock climbing there are: cycling, kayaking, rafting, trekking, caving and many other activities.
