You have to pay to enter this area to take a photograph of Elephant Trunk Hill. Not particularly worth it.

The view of this hill was nice but that was all the park had to offer. At the end of our visit, this wa one part we could have rushed through.

A bit of hiking, but easy even for children (even if heat & humidity made it a special experience for me;)) pretty view from the top. It was the first thing we saw in Guilin and it was a nice start.

Elephant slight show is interesting. It says the legend of Elephant hill. The performance of fishermen near the show is also interesting.

Went with my family and there was a lot to see including climbing the hill itself. Steps are steep up the hill so you need to be fairly fit but the view over Guilin is worth it. There are temples and museums at the bottom as well. It was fair,y busy when we went but not that many people climbed... More

Despite the large domestic holiday crowds we enjoyed our visit with some great views of the river and limestone caves.

We were told that to have the best view of the elephant trunk hill is during high tide where the hill will look more like an elephant. There are three ways to view this, take a speed boat, slow moving rattan boat or view at a site opposite the hill (free).

The formations are very interesting but I thought it was especially nice to do some people watching, see how the local residents and domestic tourists enjoy this attraction.

You can see more of Guilin's beautiful natural landscape such as the rocks that look like an elephant. There is a stone walkway in the park where you see the formation so you don't actually need to climb the elephant.
