The Chinese travel agent sold me a tour here that all tourists get, going here and a park. It was disappointing, when I came back last week and used a western photography guide boy was my experience different, can't believe I wasted time here last year.

The park is quite nice for a walk, although 75 RMB a bit steep for a stroll. It's quite a nice rock but looks nothing like an elephant. There was flooding so we couldn't get to the far side of the park, but to be honest don't think we were missing much. Not on my "must see" list!

This is just one outcrop (side of a short hill) with a small arch eroded and submerged in the river. It looks exactly like in picture and in my opinion, is not that spectacular but something interesting to see if travelers have the time. Otherwise they could skip it. Reed flute cave is amazing.

living in a country of mountains and rivers, I was very disappointed to see this little piece of rock. Yes, the history behind it is nice, and unless you have really nothing else to do in Guilin or surroundings, it might be worth to go. But personally, I thought it was a waste of time.

This is very popular with the locals who climb up to the top. However tourists only need a short time to see the sight and take a few pictures. Please be careful with the steps as they can become slippery and are also uneven. You can also dress up in ethnic costumes for photographs.
