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...More

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.

We had a private guide who took us up the Folded Brocade Hill. Even thought it was hazy, views from the top were outstanding. There are a lot of stairs and so this sight is not for those who can't climb a lot of stairs....More

We had a nice hike up the hill. The kids went down the slide, it was fun! Also had a poem written on a fan by a local famous poet.

We had a great time traveling up the hill to see the breath taking views. Just as fun coming down on the marble slide.

Diecai Hill is situated where the 4th of the 4 Lakes joins the Li River. It's many steps to climb up but go close to sunset (or sunrise I imagine) for some lovely views of Guilin and the gorgeous surrounding Carst Hills. There is also...More

Unfortunately I went on a rainy day, so the views weren't as amazing as promised, but I also pretty much had the place to myself. There is a lot of stair climbing, which can be slippery in the rain, but if you're healthy and able,...More
