The painted mountains around Guilin could not possibly be real, – the product of an artist’s wildest imaginations. Who could believe it? They are real! Our lunch on the Li river floating through these mountains brought us back to reality, as we watched the staff wash our pots, pans, and plates in the Li river water on the back of the boat. Don’t worry! Be happy! It was well worth the trip. The unbelievable mountains are shown in many pictures. Enlarge what you wish, or not. This is Guilin’s mountainous setting.
