Elephant Trunk Hill sits at the confluence of the Peach Blossom and Li rivers. The hill is named for its resemblance to an elephant drinking water with its trunk from the river below. Considered one of the symbols of the city of Guilin, the hill is also one of its most popular sights. Behind the elephant’s trunk is Water Moon Cave, an arched grotto that resembles a moon rising from the water. Inside this cave you’ll find many paintings, carvings and inscriptions dating back over a millennium, left by luminaries of times gone by.

On the top of the hill stands the Puxian Pagoda, a uniquely shaped building dating back to the Ming Dynasty. It is said that the shape of the pagoda represents a sword which, according to legend, has been plunged into the elephant’s back. Part of the pagoda’s second floor is decorated with an image of the Bodhisattva Puxian, a traditional Chinese Buddhist spiritualist who the pagoda was named after.
