The Camel Hill in Guilin Seven Star Park











Camel Hill

Camel Hill thus resembles a giant camel standing in a giant grassland. The large swath of grassland in which the "camel" stands offers a pleasant stroll. The setting sun baths Camel Hill in warm, glowing hues that are breathtakingly beautiful to behold. Seven Stars Park, and Camel Hill in particular, has long been a popular tourist venue for the Chinese people, but is becoming increasingly popular with foreign tourists, owing to the park's diversity (and size) in general, and perhaps owing to Camel Hill's impressive vistas in particular.

Flower Bridge

Flower Bridge, a 5-arch bridge in the park, is famous for its elegant style. It was originally built in the Song Dynasty and rebuilt in 1965. The bridge was surrounded by flaming wide flowers when spring coming in ancient times, hence the name. But unfortunately, now visitors can not find any, since the flowers reduced greatly in Qing Dynasty. The length of the bridge is 134.66 meters.

Guihai Stele Forest

The Guihai Stele Forest is located in south of Crescent Hill. There are about 220 well-preserved upright stone tablets (steles) that feature ancient engravings representing some of Chinese earliest calligraphy. Most of the engravings can be dated back to the Tang (618-907) and Song (960-1279) dynasties. They figure prominently in the history of Chinese calligraphy. Guihai Forest of Steles ranks second only to China's Xian Forest of Steles. It is decidedly worth a visit.

Light of China Square

Tucked between the Putuo Mountain and the Crescent Mountain, the square boasts of two craftworks, one is the stone carving murals and the other is Shi Ji Bao Ding (the precious tripod of the century). The mural, made up of more than 100 stone carvings, epitomizes 5000-year Chinese civilization. Shi Ji Bao Ding, a four-legged ding (tripod) at a height of 4.6 meters, symbolizes that the country flourishes and people live in peace.
