How to get there: 3 hours by foot from Xingping Town (more about Xingping in this post). First a 90 minutes beautiful walk along LiJiang River to the ferry at Lengshui / Jiuma Huashan 冷水 / 九马画山, and then another 90 minutes (6 km) on the other side of the river. The ferries are frequent and takes 5-10 minutes. There are private cars waiting beside the ferry berth, they want 50-80 yuan to Xianggongshan.
It’s a 45 minutes ride by car from Yangshuo Bus Station to the entrance of Xianggongshan (Yangshuo Railway Station is another 45 minutes away). An alternative is 15 minutes by car from Xingping Town to Jiuma Huashan, ferry to the other side of the river, and then by car 15 minutes to the entrance.
Visitors to Xianggongshan should consider trekking along a newly built road, almost free from traffic, to or from Quanjiazhou Village. See more about this hike in a separate post here.
