Elephant Trunk Hill is a major tourist attraction in downtown Guilin. The small hill, right at Li riverfront, has become a stop for nearly all tour groups in Guangxi. There is always a huge crowd at every part of the park and the view is not appealing at all. Although admission is free now, I would still go somewhere else.

We had to kill half a day in Guilin so decided to visit the elephant trunk hill. The walk there in the morning was pleasant in the cold winter air. Crowded with tourists taking photos. There is a little hill within the park. Views from the peak was good, but climb up can be challenging for the young and the elderly. Would recommend if you have ample time to spare, but can skip if rushed for time.

I went to the Elephant Trunk Hill with my family in April. It is in a beautiful park along the Li River. You can take many good photos here. If you climb the hill, you can also enjoy the view of the city. Highly recommended!

Some of us always complain the expensive ticket price, but now it’s FREE for everyone! A small park but a world natural heritage, only 30 minutes you can finish this tour. Local people find it a bit boring but after all, it’s a symbol of Guilin City. Try NOT to eat those fake Beer Fish restaurants and Rice Noodles Stalls opposite the park entrance, overpriced and taste awful.

It is sad that you cannot see the hill from the street as it is hiiden away from public view by the planting of trees. We went to the Sky deck at the Jolie Vue Hotel and there we had a perfect view of the hill. It is just an interesting rock formation which look like an elephant drinking water.Rather go to the SKY Deck , relax , have drink and enjoy the view before paying to climb the hill with no spectacular view of the elephant or Guilin.

It was a hot July afternoon with humidity about 90% so that may have had an impact on my experience, but I was not particularly impressed. There were some cute concrete elephants in the river, but otherwise it was the one hill and then tons of shops trying to get you to buy crap.

Should you have time left this is a nice way to spend it. The uphill walk is strenous but you will be rewarded with a great view of Guilin and the river.

We walked along the Li River and observed the Elephant Trunk Hill and lit up from our room at night. We enjoyed the lights - blue, red, green, yellow and white.
