It took a bit of squinting for me to see the elephant drinking water. That said, it's a pretty view, especially if you make the hike to the top of the hill. Warning: It's a steep climb. Near the hill is every souvenir shop you...More

You need to pay entrance 70RMB (10EUR). If you won't pay, you can go to the bar roof of hotel on the other side of the road near the entrance.

If I remember, it was called Elephant Hill Park, or something similar. The price to get in the park was about £13 or £14, which was quite expensive in comparison with other places. I have to admit that we did not climb to the top....More

The view from the top is amazing, but the process of climbing the meandering steps is the beauty. Bring climbing shoes, and make sure you explore all the hidden areas off the main path. Worth the time and effort to climb!
