One of the tourist areas which was just another park with a high hill with lots of steps and some steep.
Could not see what the attraction was other than to climb this hill with views of Guilin.
The guide left us on our resources so could not get much of the history.
If visiting consider having a guide?

This is another area that is within walking distance from the city centre in Guilin. It is CNY 130 so it is not cheap but I found the place worth it. Besides, for the first time in our visit to Guilin, we didn't find crowds and we were able to enjoy ourselves in a quiet atmosphere.

Take into account that the access to the peak is not easy, the steps are steep and you will probably end out of breath!. Visit my blog to see some photos.

At 120 RMB per person, the park is much too expensive for what it has to offer ... It is a nice, large and well kept park, whose main attraction (in my opinion) is its high and steep hill whose top you have a reasonably nice view of the city. Even this attraction is somehow diminished by the presence of two professional photographers who seem to have a monopoly on the top-of-the-hill location, and limit a visitor's ability to take photos. The park may also be more important if you are interested in Chiang Kai-shek, who has a nice statue there and a few places associated with his presence. Otherwise, it is just a nice but much too expensive park...

The Solitary Beauty Peak is beautiful mountain next to a Ming Dynasty 650 year old mansion. It is located in a prominent tourist area in Guilin, within 20 minutes walk from the shopping district Zhengyang Street.

I was expecting a commercial tourist site and I was not disappointed. But I am surprised that it can be fun too.They manage to make history fun while preserving the heritage. At the entrance, the guide will inform you which step to walk based on customs. The museum is forgettable. But the fun starts after that. After you finish the tour of the mansion, you will be led to a cave where there are exciting activities like taking the scholar test in front of crew dressed as scholars, and a section in of the cave for you to find your horoscope. Finally there is a climb up the peak where you get a very nice view of the city.

It is a nice morning to spend the day and its a highly recommended visit for individuals, families and friends on holiday.

At 130 RMB, this site bills itself as the Little Forbidden City. It is actually a university. The "historic" buildings are mock museums. There is nothing to show the historic value of the building or of the site itself. The best part of the site is the climb to the top of the hill on the ground. Great views. But, there are plenty of other opportunities for this in Guilin for much less money. It is a shame that the Guilin government allows this scam to continue.

Get yourself one of the many staff guide for a historical tour of the place; learn more about the origins of 福 字.
Only here does the Osmantus tree continue to flower in winter.

We also toured the location where the imperial exams were held in ancient times. A fun interactive experience.

Solitary Beauty Peak (独秀峰, Dú xiùfēng) lies in the center of an old walled palace, Jing Jiang Princes' City (靖江王城, Jìngjiāng Wángchéng). The palace is now part historic landmark, part college: Guangxi Normal University's main campus lies within the old walls.

The climb up Solitary Beauty Peak is very steep, but takes less than 15 minutes to get to the top. The peak offers great views of Karst Mountains around Guilin. Fubo Hill is the closest, sitting right along the river to the east of Solitary Beauty Peak. To the North is Diecai Hill. Northwest is Laoren Shan (Old Man Mountain). To the South, you can see Elephant Trunk Hill, Chuan Shan, and Nanxi Shan. You can also see the old walls around Jing Jiang Princes' City.

Also at the top are various tourist traps: you can get your picture taken at the peak, you can even get dressed up if you like. Personally, I avoid these. At the base of Solitary Beauty Peak, there are a few engravings. Fubo Shan has a much more exciting cave and base to its peak. On the north side of Solitary Beauty Peak is a picturesque pond; its worth walking around, and would only take 5-10 minutes. I would recommend spending an hour or less at JingJiang Princes City, and then heading over to Fubo Shan.

Unlike Diecai Hill, climbing to the top of this peak is quite the adventure. The stairs are very very steep (some are almost a foot), a bit uneven, and in many places, all you have to steady yourself is a chain bolted to the side of the mountain. Never the less, the views are wonderful, and it makes for a nice brief workout.

Firstly, the entrance fee is incredible 120RMB per person that allow you to walk around a regular but well preserved park, to visit a well organized museum and finally to climb a hill and enjoy an fog city overview. At the hill, you also can see a cave with several Buddhas representations drawn in the wall and a reading hall, that you have no access. Although the words looks good, the entrance fee still over the expectation.
Secondly, the tour has no English speaker so you have to do everything by yourself however English explanation can be find everywhere. Anyway, we deserve a discount for that!

This is an interactive historic exhibits, but you must follow tour guide.
You cannot explore the park independently.
