Get there at 7am to avoid the crowd, then the peace and beauty are worth it. The vendors are friendly and speak some English. The walkways are clean and pretty. But it is very touristy and the construction in the background is starting to show the encroachment of the city
It's very easy to find the entrance. The hill is absolutely beautiful and you can walk around on your own time. Depends on what time of the year you're going, but take a lot of water, sunscreen and snacks with. There's a lot of history to read about. The climb up and sown is quite steep but not too touch, it's slippery so rather wear shoes with a nice grip, especially when you're coming down.
good to visit. cheaper to buy from trip.com . it canbe seen from li river cruise and 4 lake tour. night view is awesome
Its famous as Elephant trunk mountain. it was a very great time. it has story behind this, visit and get to know.
Beautiful scenery. Was not very crowded when I went and was easy to find your way around the area.
Elephant Trunk Hill is situated in Guilin. Easy to navigate your way around the area and definitely worth it. If your keen on climbing a few stairs don’t worry it will be worth it. The main attraction area is definitely where the rock formation looks like an elephant trunk. You’ll only have a few minutes to snap the best picture as people stand in lines to take a picture at this specific point, so make sure you do it perfectly. Walking around the park brings a sense of calmness. Surrounded by water and green parks it’s definitely a top tourist area.
It looks like an elephant drinking water, we visited in September which isn't the best time as the water is not very high.
If you want to walk in Elephant Trunk Hill area you can plan 2-3 hours for this. You can climb the hill and see the Guilin from the top. There is a cave inside the hill called elephant eye cave.I need to tell you important information about the "Legend of the Elephant Hill" evening show. The default price for this show is 105, but in reality the ticket cost is 65 or even 50 in ticket office. The show lasts for only 10 minutes, it is just a short movie on the hill. After this movie you can see the hill with color lights and can make photos. If you want to see something like you can see in Yangshuo just forget about this show. This is really not exactly the show, because there are no people who take part in show. "The legend of the elephant hill" movie starts at 19:30 and repeats after 30 minutes.There are no any discounts for foreigners here, combo tickets with 2 rivers and 4 lakes cruise are also not available in ticket offices.If you want to have good time in the evening take night cruise or go to see 2 pagodas (sun and moon pagoda).
Go to the hotel at the corner across the Elephant Hill, youll have fantastic view and can enjoy a great dinner there.
