Guilin,Yaoshan Mountain


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

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

By the way,Yaoshan Mountain 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.
