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

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.
