Guilin trip to Yaoshan Mountain
flowers in spring on Yaoshan Mountain

Yaoshan Mountain lies in the east of Guilin , 12 km from the downtown. The highest peak is 903.3 meters high and is the highest hill in Guilin.

It received its name from a Yao emperor temple, which was built the top of the mountain in the Tang dynasty. Each season offers a different view. In spring azalea flowers are everywhere, in summer the bamboo compete with each other for greenness and in autumn the red maples with falling leaves make the hill appear as though it's afire. The winter's snow on mountains is as transparent as pure crystal.

The Hill has several places of interest including Yao Temple , White Deer Temple , Jade Breast Pond and Tianci Field. Jingjiang King Tomb's covering over 100 square meters are the most famous attractions in the area.

Completed in 1996, a 1,416 meter long cable car connects the top and the foot and offers bird's-eye views of wonderful peaks and surrounds. The 1,000m sloping track has 18 curves, which enables tourists to travel through mysterious forest.

The cable car was imported from Doppelmatry Cable Car Co. Austria. It is equipped with an alarm system, a TV monitor protection system. The cable is 1416.18m long from the bottom to the top.

The toboggan slide, which is stimulating and interesting, was imported from WIGAND Toboggan Co. Germany. It is 100m long with 18 turns sliding down from the top. You will have a beautiful view of rocks, flowers and brooks on each side when you down the mountain with the slide.
The cable car and toboggan mingle natural beauty and man-made scenery nicely.
