Elephant Trunk Hill 
 
Elephant Trunk Hill--Symbol of Guilin
    Elephant Trunk Hill

    Situated majestically on the western bank of Li River, the hill resembles an elephant sucking water from the river with its long trunk. It is supposed to be the landmark of Guilin landscape, which you can find on most travel brochures or books. The most impressive is said to be the water reflection of a moon-like cave when the moonlight sprinkles over the river, hence the name "Moon over the Water".

    A narrow zigzag path leads to the top and the Tower of the hill. The tower was built from solid brick and dating from the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), the tower is round and looks like a bottle or the handle of a sword, so the tower is also referred to as the Precious Bottle Tower or the Sword Handle Tower.
