The Elephant Hill, also called
the Elephant Trunk Hill, lies on the conjunction
of the Li River and
the peach blossom river. It is the badge of Guilin
The whole hill looks exactly like
a huge elephant stretching its trunk drinking
water by the Li River. It is the masterpiece of
karst landscape, composed of pure limestone deposited
on seabed 360million years ago.
Between the "trunk" and the "body"
is a vast round cave which resembles a full moon
on water hence the name "Moon-over-Water" Cave.
When the waters wave and the moonlight gleams,
the scene is exceedingly enchanting. This cave
intoxicated innumerous poets through ages. Many
lines can be found giving high honor of the cave.
On the top of the Elephant
Hill stands a pagoda-Puxian Pagoda. Built
in Ming dynasty, it has a long history. At the
foot of the hill is Yunfeng Temple, inside which
is now the exhibition of "The Revolution of the
Taiping Heavenly Kindow in Guilin".
