Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan), Guilin

(1.7/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • I guess it's on the must visit list, but not really much else to see or do, other than taking picture with the Elephant Trunk Hill as the background.  more »
  • Li River, harmonize well with an extra tax. The nose would not subject these distractions is the Park San Li River walk-a-thon as a certain area to be able to talk the red. Was beautiful.

  • 坐船游是不能下去到山边玩的,而且山很小没什么可看的。要游漓江,最美的一段在阳朔,可在阳朔城内租单车游玩,游漓江一定要来对时节,通常上半年水清,下半年就浑浊毫无美感。 个人不建议来这个象鼻山。  more »
