YingXi area of QingYuan County, Guangdong is a climbing area mostly developed from 2005 to 2008. The rock is typical tropical limestone, dark and quite sharp where exposed to rainfall, lighter, smoother and providing great climbing where sheltered from the elements. The area has beautiful countryside providing a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere for climbing. There are over 80 established routes in over 15 sectors/areas and development is ongoing. Do not confuse Kowloon in QingYuan County with Kowloon in Hong Kong.
Where to stay
The closest place to stay to most of the climbing areas is the town of Mingjing/明迳 also called Huang Hua/Wohng Fa/黄花. It has two or three small hotels, a supermarket, shops and some restaurants. The other place to stay is Jiu Long/Kowloon/九龙, which is slightly bigger and better provisioned than Wohng Fa but is further from the climbing. Kowloon has two or three small hotels, some restaurants, a supermarket, a wet market and small shops. Both of these are basic rural towns with little tourism infrastructure. However, some mainland group tours come to the area to visit hot springs and take in the scenery. Tourism is growing and the facilities improve every year.
