First of all we met with the other 7 people who will be with us or the duration of the trip.
We took a bike ride from Yangshuo to Yulong where we boarded small bamboo rafts and drifted downstream. While we were rafting our bikes where somehow transported to our end point. We were provided with water pistols while on the rafts so it was a very wet ride! Once we finished rafting we then took a wet cycle back to Yangshou.
In the evening we boarded another boat and cruised the Lijjiang river alongside local farmers on bamboo rafts who use cormorants to catch fish. Most people will recognise this from the HSBC advert.
The farmers tie elastic bands around the cormorants throat to stop them swallowing the fish they catch.
