Itinerary

Day 1: D1: Hangzhou -> Chuanyan 19 Peaks -> Tiantai Check-in

Stop At: Hangzhou, Hangzhou, Zhejiang
Great to see you here! Meet up and get acquainted at the designated meeting point, then board the travel coach. Depart for the Chuanyan 19 Peaks Scenic Park in Shaoxing, Xinchang county.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Chuanyan Shijiufeng Scenic, Jingling Town, Xinchang County 312540 China
Arrive. Get lunch together.

Finish eating, then head into the park and start seeking out the sights. Chuanyan is full of classic Danxia landforms – the mountain rocks stand towering, shoulder to shoulder. There is 19 of them, hence the name “19 peaks.”

But wait. Chuanyan is more than just a place to see stone giants and mystic Chinese scenery - there’s also thrills to be had. Experience the glass cliff face skywalk – the highest one Zhejiang has to offer – called the Feilong ‘Flying Dragon’ walkway.

Finish sightseeing, then relax on the coach. We depart for Tiantai.

Arrive, enjoy an evening meal, and check in for the night.

Day 2: D2: Tiantai -> Shiliang Falls stream tracing -> Tiantai Check-in

Stop At: Taizhou Shiliang Waterfall, Shiliang Town, Tiantai County 317209 China
Wake up, eat, set off.

The coach will set us down at our waterfall stream tracing start point, where we meet our trail guide. From here a cool day of river trace stream hiking begins.

This locally-loved route finds its way all the way in to the Taizhou Shiliang waterfall. Giant stones stand like trees of a forest, the sounds of river water wash and soothe, you wander along to find little jade water rockpools –feel your worries and thoughts fall away as you lose yourself in this naturally stimulating setting.

Progress toward the waterfalls, lending an arm or a boost to help companions climb the taller hurdles along the way. Work together, then enjoy the destination together.

Complete the stream trace. Return to the hotel. Stay one more night in Taizhou.

Duration: 5 hours

No meals included on this day.

Day 3: D3: Tiantai -> Shenxianju -> Stay the night in Shenxianju

Stop At: Shenxianju Scenic Resort of Xianju, Within Xianju Scenic Aera, Xianju County 317100 China
Eat breakfast, find the group, then depart. We’re going to a place they call ‘the Residence of the Gods’ – Shenxianju. Ride for 1.5 hours to arrive.

Inside the bounds of Shenxianju has the world’s largest cluster of volcanic geoforms. The whole landscape has a unique character.
Originating from liquid magma, every mountain, every cave and every stream – every hard element of the scenery that makes up this land has its own style and feel.
“Kwan-yin (the Buddhist goddess)”, “As it comes”, “Tian Mu Peak”, “Cloud Sea, Flying Falls and the Tadpole Writings” – these are the six strange sights of Shenxianju, all of which were given their names in an attempt to capture their curious uniqueness.

Spend the day exploring and discovering outdoors.

Late afternoon we make our way to accommodation.
We will stay one night in Shenxianju.

Duration: 6 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Xianju resort B&B guesthouse.

Day 4: D4: Shenxianju -> Nanxi River raft -> Shiwei Cliff -> Campground BBQ -> Yongjia Guesthouse

Stop At: Nanxi River, Yongjia Town, Yongjia County 325100 China
After breakfast we ride for Wenzhou. Our destination is the Nanxi River.

“Gorgeous waters, intriguing cliffs, a profusion of waterfalls, ancient villages and beautiful waterside forests.”
This setting is held to be “the cradle of Chinese mountain and water landscape art”. This is the only Chinese national park that has made its name specifically for its spread of idyllic country landscape.

Raft and chill. First, we step aboard a traditional bamboo raft and make steep a pot of tea to drink with snacks as we drift along through the landscape – an elegant way to enjoy an elegant river.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Shiwei Rock, Hesheng Country, Yongjia County 325114 China
Next we become guests at a local home for a midday meal. Refuelled, we set our sights on Shiweiyan Scenic Zone.

The landmark attraction of Shiweiyan is a giant, pale red stone that towers 306-meters tall at the nature park’s center. Some think it looks like a ship’s mast (“Shiwei” literally means ‘stone mast’.)

Arrive, plot a course to the giant, climb the mast to its summit and see a beautiful panorama of the Nanxi landscape as your reward.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Nanxi River Yanjiang Rural Cultural Zone, Yantou Village, Yantou Town, Yongjia County 325113 China
Yet another scenic zone conquered, we exit and head for our camping ground on the Nanxi River banks. Fire up the BBQ, cook a smokey feast and eat your fill.

With a full belly, nap and chat on the bus as you’re ferried to the B&B where we will check in to spend the night.

Duration: 3 hours

Same river, different stretch, different experience.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Cangpo Ancient Village, Yantou Town, Yongjia County 325100 China
Off the water, there’s a little, off-the-map village for you to explore.
