Guilin Laozhai Mountain, Yangshuo County
(4.6/5 based on 170 reviews on the web)
Admire the sight of the Li River meandering slowly through the giant wooded karst anthouses of the Laozhai Hills at Guilin Laozhai Mountain, and make your 20-Yuan banknote come alive. At the top of a steep climb with over 1,100 stone steps, starting from Rongtan Park next to Xingping town wharf, you will be rewarded with an iconic and awe-inspiring view. A must-see during a visit to Giulin, bring a bottle of water for the 30-40 minute hike, and don't forget your camera. The majestic panorama from the top gives you unparalleled views of rural and natural scenery. If you wish to see the sunrise, you can find accomodations available in inns at the foot of the hill.
