At ¥75 entrance fee there is not much to see. The gardens are ok but poorly signposted. Some signs will lead you straight to a locked gate. There are no signs pointing to the... read more

At ¥75 entrance fee there is not much to see. The gardens are ok but poorly signposted. Some signs will lead you straight to a locked gate. There are no signs pointing to the elephant rock so it's a case of walking around until you happen upon it, and even then you are right on top of it so you... More

A pricy and touristy park with an elephant theme. Nothing much to see other than the city from when climbing up the hill. Skip this trip if you do not fancy paying 75RMB per person to enter. There are also several shady characters offering you discount "ways to enter" just outside the park itself. They will either sell you an... More

Not the price of admission. Years ago I was there and it was cheaper and when you climb the hill you can see everything. Now it is over grown and over priced and you see nothing. See it from a distance and you do not have to pay.

This park really features Elephant hill but there are also other areas that are enjoyable to walk around and see. The view of the mountains and river as well as flowering trees and plants. It was within walking distance from our hotel which made it very convenient. We enjoyed some ice cream as well as some cultural dancers giving a... More

It is a place to walk a little with your family and take nice pictures...the elephant cave is a nice shot and interesting rock formation. At the very top of the mountain our tourist guide told us there was a monastery with a one door opening atop of eveything...interesting. We saw people in boats on the lake but we didn't... More

While the park is known for it's "Elephant Trunk" cave feature, I found that to be just one small part of a much larger, nicer forested area in otherwise-grey downtown Guilin. I spent hours wandering the paths around the central karst before finally reaching the "trunk"/cave part, which - in tourist off-season, at least - you can climb around in... More

Guide told us the elephant trunk hill is the image of Guilin City. As I saw it, I was so agree. The hill is a so typical karst hill that represent the character of Gulin landscape. The elephant shape hill stands by the Li River, which is also the most famous river in Guilin, how amaing the scene is!

Elephant Hill was a nice park, definitely well maintained and touristy. While I enjoyed my visit there, it was no where near worth the 70RMB fee...could see myself paying max 40RMB for similar park anywhere else in China. Oh well, still had a good time. Not a must see, but if you have a few extra hours, why not stop... More
