I visited this location with an English guide. She had us board a boat downstream from the hill and we boated to the site. We visited a floating café right near the site. Had lunch of fresh fish caught in the river. The guide had told me about the fascinating myth associated with this hill. There were also fishermen nearby... More

The landmark is fine but the fact that you have to pay to see it and a terrible collection of poorly maintained wire and cloth sculpture? Do not bother, Spend your time and money elsewhere. Travel to Yangshuo and see Moon Hill or anything.

It is nice view and enjoy relaxing in the nearby nice park. just in front of the hole in the rock when the rock resembles an elephant trunk, there is a lady showing her Kormoran birds to be photographed with visitors in this location.

Elephant Trunk Hill is an interesting area of natural and built attractions. The river walk is full of interesting statues and in the morning locals are exercising and walking and making the most of the cooler time of day. Elephant Trunk Hill itself requires a bit of imagination but is still lovely.

Given the myriad of other beautiful sites in this area, wouldn't waste my time going here. Find a coffee shop and relax instead

Don't get your expectations to high this is just a beautiful mountain by the river and there is a garden with art exhibition. The cool thing was there is a lady on the shore of the river with cormorant birds to take pictures or you can dress with traditional chinesse dresses for the picture and that's it.
