Seven Star Park is one of the best urban parks in China and has something for just about everyone.
The park is named after the seven peaks located throughout here that are shaped like the Big Dipper constellation. Amongst the peaks are several explorable caves, including "Seven Star Cave", which are quite famous for having stalagmites, stalactites and other natural formations that resemble animals and landscapes.
The rest of this fantastic park is filled with trees and gardens. With its beautiful peaks, caves and gardens, this park has enough to keep any visitor entertained for hours or even a good day.
Situated on the eastern side of the Li River, Seven Star Park is the biggest (with an area of 134 hectares) with the best natural environment in Guilin. It includes sites as Follower Bridge, Camel Hill, Seven Star Cave and others.
The elegantly constructed Flowers Bridge is the main gateway to the park. It was first built in the Song dynasty and renovated in the Ming dynasty. It's said that in the ancient time the bridge was well surrounded by wild flaming flowers in spring, thus the name of the bridge. Unfortunately, the number of flowers reduced greatly during the Qing dynasty and now visitors can't find any.
The Camel Hill is a wow of a sight. Being in the shape of a huge camel, it was named so. The hill is so life-like that it seems to be elaborately forged by human. Actually it is entirely a natural formation.
The Seven Star Cave is a fantastic karst cave with a large number of stalagmites and stalactites, which decorate the cave into an eye-dazzling beautiful place.
Other famous scenic spots here are: Crescent Hill, Putuo Hill, Guihai Stele Forest.
