Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan), Guilin
(1.8/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
A landmark of Guilin perched on the confluence of the Li and Taohua rivers, Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan) has been a popular tourist spot since the Tang dynasty. The curiously shaped limestone formation with a large hole resembles a giant, tree-covered elephant taking water from the river with its trunk. Enjoy the reflection of the karst hill on the still surface of the water. Climb to the top to see a panorama of Guilin, or rent a boat to get close to the giant limestone trunk. A temple with a pagoda lies on the hilltop as well.

  • It's a visit to a park of payment. In it you can spot a lake with a hill, that throwing imagination looks like an elephant's trunk. The Park has no interest to be simple and not offer more attractive and also this Hill you can see from another close without payment in the private park.
