Whilst staying at one of the most idyllic hotels called the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat in Yangshuo, China we walked to visit the nearby tourist attractions and one of these included a majestic Banyan Tree of epic proportions. It is located around 6km southwest of Yangshuo and set alongside the Gulin Li River and is a must visit scenic location in this part of China. The Banyan tree is stated to have been planted in the Sui Dynasty about 1,400 years ago which is amazing and checkout the aerial roots now forming props and becoming trees in their own right.
