If you are a photography enthusiast and happen to be in Yangshuo, China, one of the most picturesque locations to capture stunning sunrise photos is at the top of Mount XiangGong. Although the morning we visited the mountain was quite foggy, we still managed to capture some amazing shots that showcased the beauty of the sunrise. I woke up at 4 a.m to be able to see that sunrise in the XiangGong hill near Yangshuo. I takes approximately 1 hour to go from Yangshuo to Xingping but you need to go early because the top of the mountain is often crowded at this hour. Mount XiangGong is located near Yangshuo, in southern China, Guangxi province, and is a popular destination for nature lovers, hikers, and photographers. It’s a relatively easy hike to the top of the mountain, and the views from the summit are breathtaking, especially at sunrise. As the sun began to rise, we noticed that the fog was slowly starting to dissipate, revealing the stunning landscape that lay before us. The misty mountains and the rolling hills of the countryside were bathed in soft, golden light, creating a peaceful and serene atmosphere that was perfect for photography. As the sun continued to rise, the colors in the sky shifted, creating a stunning display of oranges, pinks, and purples. We were able to capture some incredible shots of the sun peeking through the fog and illuminating the surrounding landscape.
