And try to quest from the walls for the ancient travel notes that have been existing since as early as 1,000 years ago.

After the exploration, travel to Elephant Trunk Hill, noted as the symbol of Guilin landscape. You can see it looks like a huge, vivid elephant wearing a green shawl on its back; and its long nose is dipped into the limpid water.
