Situated within the Elephant Hill Scenic Area (Xiangshan Park) at the confluence of the Taohua River and Li River, this site has been a renowned tourism destination since the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907). The hill itself bears a striking resemblance to a giant elephant gracefully drinking water from the river.
Surrounding Elephant Trunk Hill, visitors can marvel at not only the hill’s natural splendor but also encounter some remarkable ancient constructions. Among them are notable structures such as the Puxian Pagoda, Yunfeng Temple, and the Sarira Dagoba, each contributing to the historical and cultural richness of the area. This combination of breathtaking natural scenery and ancient architectural marvels makes Elephant Trunk Hill a must-visit destination for travelers exploring the beauty and heritage of Guilin.
