This is the most favorable park for the local citizens, cheap entry fee CNY25 for two main Hills and two caves! Enjoy the best view of Li River, some breeze in a hot city, some ancient stone inscriptions and a ¥10 mountain slide. Local post-rock band “Misswoman” wrote a beautiful song “Dié Cai” for this mountain.

The ticket office was closed and we did not have to pay to go up. They did however take our temperature and we had to show our passports. Having experienced it for free, I would still pay to go up, it was fun and worth the climb! We took a different route up and came down a different route. You get to see different things as you meander around the hill. Enjoyed very much! We even saw a man swimming in the Li river. If you look closely you can spot him in the third photo. Lovely way to spend 1.5 hours, highly recommend.

Best views of Guilin from the top of the mountain. Very cheap to enter the facilty, only 25 rmb per person. Quite a few steps to climb but absolutely worth it when you reach the top. Forget other hills and go directly to Diecai Hill.

From Diecai Hill you get a great panorama of Guilin. There are a lot of steps to ascend, so be warned. But the climb is worth it.

This park cost 25 yuan to go in, they didn't accept our student card. There are two peaks in the park, both offering amazing views. It was a sunny, clear day when we went and the scenery was beautiful (taking into account that guilin is a massive city). There was also a cool cave which looked beautiful with the mountains as backdrops. A lot of the parks are expensive to enter but I think this was good value.

Kids slide down was so much fun. Only 20 yuan and it goes for a long way and quite fast. Our 9 and 10 yr olds loved it
Lovely views from the top.
Entrance fee cheaper than other hills.
To get there is a lovely walk along the River for 2.5km from city Centre

I recommend climbing Folded Brocade Hill in the Morning before it gets too hot. The climb up isn't easy but if you take your time it is worth it. Our guide in Guilin was Mike from China Culture. His knowledge of the city and the information while we were on the hill were amazing. You won't get a better view of Guilin.

Took the walk here, as a recommendation from staff at my hotel and I was not disappointed. Sure, it takes some effort to climb to the top, but you're rewarded with possibly the best view over this already dramatically backdropped town. It was also very inexpensive and very quiet and peaceful at the top.
I didn't do it, but there is also a pretty spectacular looking concrete slide that will bring you 2/3rds of the way back down the mountain!

If you have time, do check out the Folded Brocade Hill (Diecai Hill), the views are great and you can see how vast the Li River is and how it meanders through the mountains.
