Introduction to Folded Brocade Hill (叠彩山)

As one of the most popular tourist attractions in Guilin, the Folded Brocade Hill is especially renowned for its picturesque scenery and stone carvings. The hill stands in the northeast of Guilin at the western bank of the Li River. The current Folded Brocade Hill derived its name from its unusual looking of rock formations which resemble folded brocade piled up layer upon layer on each other. Also the hill was given the name Laurel Hill as laurels spread across the slopes of the hill since ancient time, and the name of Wind Cave Hill got from the fantastic Wind Cave on the hill.

With its remarkable scenery of peculiar stone formations and inscriptions, green trees and peaks, and a collection of temples, pavilions, and caves, the Folded Brocade Hill is a great place to retreat from busy city. The hill is consisted of four peaks, Yuyue Peak, Siwang Peak, Crane Peak, and Bright Moon Peak. The Crane Peak has the highest altitudes of 253.6 meters.

There are many featured attractions on the Folded Brocade Hill. The Wind Cave which runs from north to south in the halfway up is a gorgeous place to see with the 90 Buddha sculptures of the Tang and Song dynasties inside the cave and the many ancient stone inscriptions. The several pavilions on the hill including Face-the-Cloud Pavilion, Over-the-River-Pavilion, and Folded Brocade Pavilion all provide spectacular views of the surrounding hills and Guilin City.
