Introduction to Big Banyan Tree (大榕树)

The Big Banyan Tree in the Moon Hill Scenic Area in Guilin is located at Gaotian Village on the western bank of Jinbao River, about seven kilometers south of Yangshuo downtown. The towering Big Banyan Tree is a major tourist attraction on the “Ten Miles Gallery” and is a must see attraction for tourists traveling to Yangshuo and Guilin.

The Big Banyan Tree was planted in the Sui Dynasty (581 - 618) and it has a history as long as 1,400 years. The trunk of the banyan tree measures 7 meters in width and 17 meters in height. Though after a thousand years of wind and rain, the banyan tree survived with lush branched and foliage. The tree looks like a huge green umbrella and its shadow can cover an area more than 100 square meters. During summer, visitors like to sit under the tree. 

The Big Banyan Tree also got its fame because of the film Liu Sanjie which was partly shot there. It is under this big banyan tree where Liu Sanjie, the heroine of the film, expressed her love and gave an embroidered ball to A’niu, the hero of the film. The beautiful love story adds more charm to the Big Banyan Tree.
