Huashan Cliff Murals- nice boat trip
Jan 2019 • Solo
I took a bus from Chongzuo to Ningming and slept near the bus station for 90CNY. In the morning I took 2 pedicabs totaling 35CNY that brought me to the tourist center where you catch the boat. My hotel wrote the name in Chinese to show the drivers and my guidebook calls it Huashan Shanzhai or Panlong village. I got there at 10 but the first boat of the day was 11:30- I know it was the first boat as one guy was there since 8. It cost 82 yuan for the 2 hour plus trip which included a 20 minute stop at a local village where they played music. The site was very isolated so you probably want to arrange a return trip or ask the staff at the tourist center to call. I joined another tourist who had arranged roundtrip from the train station for 50CNY. The boat trip was very pleasant and the scenery amazing. I didn't understand the guide so didn't learn too much about the rock paintings but joined for the river scenery. They had a small stand for food and you could buy food at the village otherwise bring your own.

An extensive cliff face of 2000 year old rock art - Unesco world heritage listed
Dec 2017 • Friends
boats from the Huashan scenic area visitor area take about an hour to reach this site. it's a nice boat trip and you get about 20 mins to look at the art. It made much more sense to us having previously visited the museum dedicated to the rock art along this river at Chongzuo (excellent) . Initially you may be underwhelmed by the painted panels because they're dwarfed by the huge cliff they're on; but they are extremely significant and it's a nice day out. Unfortunately the website doesn't note the times the boats leave the Huashan scenic area dock but we got there about 1255 and were told the boat would go in 5 mins and actually it went about 1320 and they aren't frequent off season. it does look as though a walkway is being installed along the river so you can walk there too, as there was a certain amount of activity going on, but at present that's not an option, but as things move so fast in China it may well be soon.

Unique Rock Paintings
Jan 2016 • Couples
The Ningming Huashan Hot Spring International Hotel (very good!) where we stayed chartered a boat (400rmb) for us to see these incredible over 2200 years old rock paintings. It is best to see them from the river, the viewing terrace is a bit far away and tourists were not allowed on the one close to the rock. The boat trip is beautiful and relaxing and takes about 3-4 hours.The boat itself was very basic, but fine.
If you have the opportunity, go to the Guangxi Museum of Nationalities in Nanning before visiting the site. The museum gives you excellent information about the Zhuang people (and their predecessors) and the rock paintings. Our skipper was quite knowledgeable too, but he only spoke Chinese.
It is obvious that this site is being prepared for mass tourism, it is on Unesco's Tentative List. So go as soon you can!

The boat ride leading to the painting offers a wonderful scenery.
Jan 2016
The paintings hold immense cultural and historical value. Just how did they make these paintings over 2000 years ago and what did they actually mean is itself a wonderful journey across time. The free-boat ride which comes with the ticket offers some blissful scenery across nature with fresh air that is so rare those days.. The site is being renovated and shall soon be crowded when it gets rated by UNESCO.
