Highlights / General details
Elephant Trunk Hill juts out into the Li River where it joins the Peach Blossom River. It is the symbol of Guilin City. Elephant Trunk Hill is so named because it looks like a giant elephant drinking water with its trunk on the Li River bank. At dusk, it looks extraordinarily lively. Between the trunk and legs, there is a cave called "Moon-over-Water Cave.” The Cave looks like a full moon floating on the surface of the water. On the top of the hill, there is a Ming Dynasty pagoda. It looks like the hilt of a dagger on the back of the elephant and is reminiscent of the legend of the hill’s formation.
It is certain that the Reed Flute Cave, with its many stalactites, stalagmites, and unusual rock formations, is a must-see attraction in China. This large, underground complex of grottoes, unique rock and stone formations, and multi-colored lighting contains some of the most extraordinary scenery offered by Guilin. The Crystal Palace of the Dragon King and the Old Scholar Stone are just some of the famous attractions contained within the caves.
