Guilin Tour
Tailor Make Your Guilin Tour
Thank you so much for the awesome service today! Geoffry and the driver, Mr Shang, were great today. Geoffry was by the exit to the Guilin airport exactly where I walked out. And he did a great job as my guide. The van for the tour was clean and in good condition. The only suggestion I would make for better service would be to allow the guide to eat lunch with the guest when the guest is alone. It was kind of awkward eating alone, and there was plenty of food served which could have easily fed the both of us.
I'm hoping the coach tours will be a great experience as well.
Thanks again,
Jack Benzel

Elephant Trunk Hill

Elephant Trunk HillElephant Trunk Hill, as the symbol of Li River, is situated in the junction of Taohua River and Li River. The whole hill looks like a elephant dipping its trunk into the river, hence the name was chosen. Elephant Trunk Hill is regarded as the symbol of Guilin and is one of the most famous hills in Guilin city.

The history of the hill could be traced back to 3.6 million years ago. It is 55 meters above the Li river, measuring 108m in length and 100m in width and covered an area of 1.3 hektares. The elephant hill is composed of several features such as Water Moon Cave (Shuiyue dong), Elephant's Eye Stone, and Pagoda for Puxian and Yunfeng Temple.

Water-moon cave has been listed as the key cultural relics protection units in Guangxi Province.

Over 70 inscriptions from the Tang and Song dynasties were found on the walls in and around this cave, praising the beauty of hills and waters nearby.

It was built in Ming Dynasty and followed the Tibetan culture, looks like a handle of sword.
