This half-day tour takes you around to Guilin’s most amazing tourist sites, including the Reed Flute Cave, Fubo Hill, and the symbolic Elephant Hill Park.
What to Expect
It is a bus tour, so your guide will go to several hotels to pick up other clients. The pick-up time is between 7:00 and 8:00, after which your first stop will be the Reed Flute Cave. Your hotel should in Guilin city down town.
The Reed Flute Cave is located about five kilometers northwest of downtown Guilin, a brilliant cave marked on almost all travel itineraries. The cave got its name from the verdant reeds growing outside it, with which people make flutes. Inside this water-eroded cave is a spectacular world of various stalactites, stone pillars and rock formations created by carbonate deposition. Illuminated by colored lighting, the fantastic spectacle is found in many variations along this 240-meter-long cave. Walking through the serried stone pillars, tourists feast their eyes on changing spots, feeling they are in a paradise where the Gods live. After your visit to Reed Flute Cave, you will go to Fubo Hill, half of which stretches into the river. Fubo Hill is a total of 120 meters long, 60 meters wide and 213 meters high, standing tall in the northeast of Guilin, on the west bank of the Li River. The waves of the river are turned back when they meet the stone blocks of the hill, hence the name "wave-subduing hill" when Fubo Hill is translated into English.
Then, you will be brought to Elephant Trunk Hill Park, whichis situated majestically at the southeast of Guilin city and west bank of Li River and is regarded as the symbol of Guilin landscape. Originally named "Li Hill", "Yi Hill" and "Chenshui Hill", the hill has a history of 3.6 hundred million years. Resembling an elephant leisurely sucking water from the river with its long trunk, this hill is famous as Elephant Trunk Hill for hundreds of years. After this you will be brought back to your hotel, with the rest of the day on your own arrangement.
