China is quite a country of contrasts. Not only if it comes to mentality and economy but even more so in the geography. I mean it is a vast land and certainly there are differences in the landscape. These differences are best seen in the mountains There are steep and sharp mountains in the north, Flat ones in the Middle, Cliffs in the yangzee and there are the round mountains of Guilin, a region in South-China.

China is quite a country of contrasts. Not only if it comes to mentality and economy but even more so in the geography. I mean it is a vast land and certainly there are differences in the landscape. These differences are best seen in the mountains There are steep and sharp mountains in the north, Flat ones in the Middle, Cliffs in the yangzee and there are the round mountains of Guilin, a region in South-China. They are so beautiful and they are like family, because the are attached to each other like a herd of camels sitting down for siesta. Quite a peculiar view and a very catchy one, which you will never forget.

Yangshuo is a very good example how backpacking has changed the face of traveling in china. In ’99 when I was traveling I was told there are only a few computer in China with Internet access. Well, nope! And after all it is a market and when backpackers are around the want to write home and they want to book flights. Therefore I had internet everywhere and even created my first e-mail-address there, it still has a Chinese password. And in Yangshuo there is a massive competition of hostels and dormitories and they even have a bike rental there. From these Western points you can stroll out to the wild side and you will not be disappointed. Peasants still work on the field with water-buffalos and they work really hard to get the rice on the kitchen table.

The beautiful mountains are made for climbing and I have heard that the Australian Company Chinaclimb is controlling the climb-business in Yangshou. The area is very countryside and calm, quite a good rest compared to the big cities in China!
