Interesting if you have english-speaking guide

This place is full of history and worth to be visited but you definitely need to have an english-speaking guide with you to really undestand the value of this place

Very boring unless you can read Chinese and are interested in all the faces of old historical men. The buildings are just full of portraits, nothing else. Also the cave that was small and very ordinary. The peak was the only interesting part of the whole thing, but due to this price we left also is disappointed. The view from... More

The peak itself is definitely a must-see place in Guilin. It can be a bit scary to climb up the steep steps, but it is worth it at the end when you can see the entire city, the beautiful mountains and feel this unique calmness of the place. Down the peak there are some other places to see. Unfortunately for... More

This beautiful historic campus used to be much more open. I do t like how they closed off part of the campus. It's still a nice place for a stroll, but the open grandeur has been lost a little bit. The history is well preserved and interesting if you have an educated guide.

Bring your running shoes, cause climbing this hill is a must in Guilin. The view from the top is breath taking!

I've seen better and more interesting sites just about anywhere I went in China. It's in the Center of Guilin so I thought I might give it a shot but as soon as I saw the sign "no refunds" at the ticket office I had my doubts. 130rmb for semi old buildings and a little peak that offers a pretty...

Definitely not worth the 120 Yuan entry fee. Good views from the peak, but wouldn't really recommend it as an attraction.

The complex has a view point where you can get great views of the city, however this is the ONLY interesting thing to do here and they charged 130RMB (US$20/person), really? Safe some money and get a nice boat tour instead!

We did not plan on going to the Solitary Beauty Peak, we originally were just planning on going to the University Art Centre. Not realizing we had to pay to enter the park to get to the University Art Centre we decided to pay and walk around and stumbled upon the Solitary Peak. Lots of steps to get to the... More

It's another peak, just this time in the middle of town and you have to pay to get in to go up it, or get close enough for a decent photo. Better views outside of town
