What a special place! The hike up here from where the bus drops you in Dazhai is a sweaty 40mins but it's worth it to already be up the hill to explore the rice terraces. The views from here are amazing so even in rainy weather you can enjoy the terraces. From here you can do loads of walks to... More

The views are the main draw here. The location is good in terms of being surrounded by spectacular scenery and the closeness o the trailhead of the 3 viewing points as well as the hike to Ping'an. However, that also means it's quite far from the bus stop and requires some strenuous hiking, at least with luggage - remember to... More

went in April and had to walk uphill for about an hour from dazhai village to Tiantou village to reach the hostel. It was hot day and the climb can be hard for some. get plenty of water though you can buy on the way but for a 25% price increase. Hostel is made on wooden stills as are others... More

If I could give this place 3 1/2 stars, I would. Of all the places in Dazhai, this is probably the best place. The views are incredible, and the staff was helpful. However, they may not have been entirely forthcoming with bus information for how to get back to Guilin. With that being said, they helped us hire a driver... More

This is a nice hostel, well located in the middle of the Dragon's Backbone Rice Terraces area. The hostel is basic, but provides good bedding and clean rooms. We had a very basic ensuite but a breathtaking view from the window (definitely the highlight!) The lounge area is nice and staff speak good English. It's a good choice for a... More

Amazing place with very good food. The staff are very nice but they dont speak much english. The rooms are clean but their is no hot water. And the view you get is indescribable, so magical. They have a very comfortable lounge with great blankets to hide from the cold and also some delicious home made wine

Handsome hostel. All wood. Try to get a corner room so you can windows on two sides. Amazing views and easy hiking (if you can handle hundreds of steps). Great food. Warm comfy bed (with an electric blanket!). Hot powerful shower. Nice people.

My girlfriend and I traveled here last year while living in China. The hike up the side of the mountain was stunningly beautiful, once you'd shaken off the elderly, indigenous women's offers for bag transportation. A small, wooden room awaited us with a comfortable bed and a desk. The bathroom was reminiscent of a caravan with a hose pipe for... More

I traveled here with my friend in September 2014. The hostel is literally a hike up the mountainside as there are no roads that lead all the way to Tian Tou Village. We are not so out of shape to be unable to hike with our 15kg packs, but it still took a lot of effort. We enjoyed the hike,... More

Take a taxi to the bus station and the bus to the Longshen Rice Terraces. Arrive at a large parking area. Don't take too much baggage. The best is a small back pack and a hat. Start climbing. After climbing more than 800 !!! stone steps (about 2 hours) we arrived at the Dragon's Den Hostel in Dazhai Village. On... More
