Fubo Hill, Guilin

3.1
#5 of 11 in Nature in Guilin
Climb to the top of Fubo Hill to get a taste of China’s legends. Standing 213 m (698.8 ft) tall from its base, the hill emerges 62 m (203.4 ft) out of the water. Believed to have the power of calming the water, its nickname literally translates as "Wave-Subduing Hill." The distinctive scenery contains clusters of rocks and stalactites mixed with artificial cloisters, temples, and pavilions. Visit the monument to General Fubo and learn about the myths that shroud the island, relating to the general himself, pearls, or the local lifestyle. Put Fubo Hill into our Guilin visit planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Cheep entry and an easy climb to the top. Wonderful views of the city and the surrounding countryside. You can get a complete perspective of the place.  more »
  • It turns out, mountain Wave Breaking is not for nothing that bears its name. In the spring, when the water level in the river rises, it protects the city from the damaging effects of water. In the caves of the temple you can see numerous statues of Buddha, with some of them about one and a half thousand years. Another temple is known for the fact that it contains heavy Bell and a huge pot, though later ages. Upstairs is an observation deck with panoramic views of the city, River and long rows of karst mountains on the horizon.

  • very good view when you make it to the top. Steps in the higher part of the hill are narrow and with the crowds going up and down it makes it difficult to enjoy it.  more »
