Omeida Chinese Academy ventured out of the classroom to climb Yangshuo’s famous TV tower. Most people who come to Yangshuo see the Yangshuo TV tower perched up on a central karst mountain. What most people do not know is that you can hike up and get some stunning views from the tower itself. It takes about half an hour on some pretty steep steps but once you get to the top it is really worth it. Yesterday some of our teachers and students visited the tower. They even practiced some yoga on the top.Though it’s a relatively steep 30-minute hike, the view at the top is well worth it. Just knock on the gate which reads “no visitors” and bribe the lady who babysits the tower with a few Yuan to be let in. Go at sunrise or sunset for the best views, we went at sunset and the place was actually fairly crowded.

Only a few people know about this wonderful place since the path entrance is hidden. But if you manage to find it, enjoy the view! Let’s climb!
