The Basics

In addition to its stunning views, Fubo Hill features a number of caves and points of interest, including the Pearl Returning Cave, the Thousand Buddha Cave, and the Sword-Testing Rock, all at the foot of the hill. There are also a number of pavilions where you can stop and enjoy the scenery.

Fubo Hill is a popular attraction and many tours will include a stop here, along with Elephant Trunk Hill, Reed Flute Cave, and Seven Star Cave. You can also combine a visit with a multi-day tour to explore top attractions outside of Guilin, such as Yangshuo.

We were contacted personally in our hotel by the tour company to confirm our trip which was very good. We really enjoyed our trip which was led by a Chinese guide who had studied tourism and English at university.

Private Guilin Half Day Tour: Fubo Mountain, Reed Flute Cave and Elephant Hill
Pleasant tour with a great guide. The landscape stimulates your imagination which is a ton of fun. The cave is astonishing with its lights. The whole tour may lack of history and profound culture, it is not for people who specifically look for a cultural visit but rather a fun moment.

Private Guilin Full Day Tour including Fubo Hill, Reed Flute Cave, Elephant Hill and Seven Star Park
This tour thoroughly covered all of the Guilin city sights- Fubo Hill, Reed Flute Cave, Elephant Hill, and Seven Star Park. All of the admissions tickets and lunch were included. Chen was an outstanding tour guide! She explained all of the history in an interesting way, took pictures for us, and guided us from place to place with ease. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Guilin and hope to attend another tour with Chen specifically.

Private Guilin Half Day Tour: Fubo Mountain, Reed Flute Cave and Elephant Hill
If I had to choose again, I would rather just visit the Reed Flute Cave on a separate tour. The cave is awesome and shouldn't be missed while in Guilin.

Private Guilin Full Day Tour including Fubo Hill, Reed Flute Cave, Elephant Hill and Seven Star Park
I really enjoyed my tour guide Lily. We went through all the sites at a leisurely pace. She even showed me the pedestrian street near my hotel where I could come and have dinner later that night and then enjoy a couple other sites. She also helped me to pre-order the beer fish a local specialty for dinner.

Pearl Returning Cave

At the foot of Fubo Hill is Pearl Returning Cave; inside of that is the Sword-Testing Rock, which hangs from the ceiling and nearly touches the ground. Legend has it that the emperor tested his sword by cutting what used to be a stone pillar, leaving the crevice at the bottom. At the back of the cave is the Thousand Buddha Cave, with more than 200 Buddhist statues and more than 100 inscriptions, some dating from the Tang and Song dynasties.
