Fubo Hill, Guilin

3.2
#4 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.

  • Here you can have a tough walk to climb up the hill but then you have a great view over the city. There are more nice things to see in this small park.  more »
  • Climb the Hill to Fubo. Not suitable for everyone. Excellent view on the panorama of the area, which are very beautiful and special. Suitable for people who like to make trouble. There are over 320 steps to overcome!
