I didn't actually visit Elephant Trunk Hill because I didn't need to. Save yourself some money, time and muscle use and head over to the Golden Oriole Hotel rooftop bar right outside of the hill. You get gorgeous views of Elephant Trunk both at night and during the day. I think it's most beautiful at night when it's all lit... More

The important thing to remember is not only seeing the Elephant Hill, you need to walk around (or over) the path around park to get the best experience. I have a knee problem but I had no problem walking around but didn't choose to take the path over the hill.

This park is just besides the Li River. The Elephant Hill is quite unique. The hill looks like an elephant drinking water from the Li River. It's very vivid. There is a small island in this park which is very quiet and peaceful. It's good to walk around and climb the hill if you like. Except that, there are not... More

We visited this park as part of our tour, the rock formation is pretty impressive however the park is not. I recommend instead that you make your way to the rooftop bar at the Golden Oriole Hotel and view from there (with a cold beer) - particularly impressive at night when the rock is lit up.

The park as a whole was nice and picturesque with several fun things to do. A ton of people there but hey, it's China.

It is nice to see the hill and watch around - though there is nothing really really breathtaking. But do it when in Guilin city!

Admission to this park was way too much for what it is. I didn't find anything all that interesting or exciting about the hill and this park.

All you see is a hole in a stone on a river and they are charging you 75 RMB to just see this! Forget it, save your money and spend ob more wisely is all I can say. Try to look through the bushes and trees they were planting along the pathway to obstuct the view to this stone. This... More

Overpriced "park". The hole in the mountain can be seen through the trees from outside the park, so I felt it was a bit wasted...
