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.

    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!

    After climbing the steep stairs we finally arrived at the top of the Hill to admire the city and the sugar loaves in the background pictures in perspective...

    During a stop in Guilin was scheduled a visit to the Hill to Fubo. We are not really high temperature, date climbed the Hill and in hindsight maybe it would have been one thing to do to appreciate this visit and the view over the city. The cave is quite pretty with engravings and statues, but we especially enjoyed the coolness of the place. Nice and cared for the small garden at the foot of the Hill.
