About
Resembling an elephant drinking water from the Li River with its long trunk, this hill towers more than 55 meters above the water.

It is sad that you cannot see the hill from the street as it is hiiden away from public view by the planting of trees. We went to the Sky deck at the Jolie Vue Hotel and there we had a perfect view of the hill. It is just an interesting rock formation which look like an elephant drinking water.Rather go to the SKY Deck , relax , have drink and enjoy the view before paying to climb the hill with no spectacular view of the elephant or Guilin.

It was a hot July afternoon with humidity about 90% so that may have had an impact on my experience, but I was not particularly impressed. There were some cute concrete elephants in the river, but otherwise it was the one hill and then tons of shops trying to get you to buy crap.

Should you have time left this is a nice way to spend it. The uphill walk is strenous but you will be rewarded with a great view of Guilin and the river.

We walked along the Li River and observed the Elephant Trunk Hill and lit up from our room at night. We enjoyed the lights - blue, red, green, yellow and white.

Image how river flow can cast a 30feet high hole through the rocks. This is how Elephant Trunk Hill was formed. Impressive and clean park where you get to see one of the hot spots of Guilin.

Though it is like one of the major attraction listed on major guilin tour companies, the elecphant hill is just average hill cliff.
Best time to visit is evening when the light show is on.

Popped in with some time to kill in Guilin. The walk up the hill requires some effort when done in heat - there are some shady spots to rest and recover but be warned that many of the steps are irregular and slippery when wet so just be cautious with your footing.
It is a great view across the city and along the river from the top.
Be sure to head down to the "elephant's trunk" on the water front to see some interesting and well aged stone wall writings.
The gardens are well maintained and suitable for relaxing or hanging out with family/friends.

It is well worth a visit to elephant trunk hill. We were able to get up close to see a Cormorant fisherman, and also enjoy the beautiful lake.

The weather in Guilin in January is very changeable, we were wearing winter puffer coats one day and shirt sleeves next.

There is a China Post outlet here that sells postcards and stamps.
