About the tour

Elephant Trunk Hill is not only one of the major tourist attractions of Guilin, but also the symbol of Guilin. This natural famous formation sits majestically on the western bank of the Li River and resembles an elephant sucking water from the river with its long trunk. The round opening under the elephant’s trunk is known as Water-Moon Cave because at night the reflection of the moon can be seen through the arch. You will also visit Love Island and see a range of artistic statuses that represent love. You may ask why it is called Love Island, please follow your guide and she will give you the answer.

This was Yvonne's first tour. She was enthusiastic, accommodating and did a good job showing us the area. I'm glad I saw the area but there really wasn't enough to see to fill up the 30 minutes. Not sure what else could have been added. Thank you
