#3 of 13 in Nature in Guilin
A landmark of Guilin perched on the confluence of the Li and Taohua rivers, Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan) has been a popular tourist spot since the Tang dynasty. The curiously shaped limestone formation with a large hole resembles a giant, tree-covered elephant taking water from the river with its trunk. Enjoy the reflection of the karst hill on the still surface of the water. Climb to the top to see a panorama of Guilin, or rent a boat to get close to the giant limestone trunk. A temple with a pagoda lies on the hilltop as well. To visit Elephant Trunk Hill (Xiangbishan) and other attractions in Guilin, use our Guilin online travel route builder.
