Not a resort, this is a lovely, peaceful chairlift ride up a gentle mountain near Guilin. Sadly, heavy clouds moved in on this our last day in Guilin, so we missed the sometimes fab views from the mountain of the Karst formations... would have given 5 stars with good weather. Our guide (very good English/very friendly) suggested combining this trip... More

Now that the cable rope allows you to ascend Mt. Yao (Yaoshan) in minutes, it is hard not to recommend this trip. The view from the top is unique (and I mean unique--there is no comparable view of Karst Mountain scenery on any continent in any country) and this is what you flew thousands of miles to see in Guilin....

Like a previous review said, I'm sure it would be amazing up and around Yao mountain if you could see anything. The haze was very strong when we were there and you honestly could not see anything. On a brighter note, we did enjoy the chairlift ride up - it's airy, long and the scent of the forest is beautiful.... More

It was a hazy day when we went up the mountain in the chair lift and one could only imagine how spectacular it would be on a clear day. I was a long ride and you got a reasonable view of the mountains and valley below. We could see steps leading up the mountain side so I guess that you... More

We were told that the Yaoshan Mountain Scenic Area was the place to see the most beautiful views of the Guilin area, so we made that a priority for our time in Guilin. Our family (with 2 children aged 7 and 10) spent the morning at Yaoshan Mountain, which was named for the Yao emperor temple at the top of... More

I love photography, so I asked my tour guide from GreatWallDiscovery where the best place is for photography. She told me that Yaoshan Mountain is the one I was looking for. Going up to the mountain, I found the scenery so beautiful here. When the sun set, the sunshine colored the sky, it is so so so....... My tour guide... More

The cable ride is on chair lifts and not cars and goes to the very top of Yao mountain, a very nice ride with views. If you look below you can see burial sites and we were told that some of these are very very old. I hate heights and felt nervous but made it to the top by looking... More

Take a cable car ride to the top while taking in the breathtaking mountain scenery. Once you get to the top, walk around the summit and look around there. Once you do that, you take a really fun toboggan down the mountain in which you can choose the speed. We had a driver from Guilin China Travel Service who we... More

We have been there many times, doing all kinds of stuff, hiking, paintball C.S., BBQ, cable car ride and camping. I love it especially for the summer hiking and camping at the top. Walking from the foot to the top is about 6km one way and you can make a stop at the waist and collect fresh mountain spring. People... More

This spot is around 20min from guilin city center away. You get up with some type of cable car. I can definitely recommend to take the slide ride down the hill...a lot of fun. On top attractions are rare, the focus is the view over the mountain ranges of guilin etc. tip: ask your hotel for a taxi to bring... More
