Folded Brocade Hill
Folded Brocade Hill (Diecai Shan) is one of Guilin's most
climbable peaks situated very close to the city center in the northeast of Guilin,
near the Lijiang River. The thin shape of the hill and lush greenery around make
it resemble brocaded fabric.
Countless Chinese character inscriptions
decorate the stone sides of the hill and the area around the path leading to the
top. Some other sights here include Wind Cave, with its Buddhist carvings and
inscriptions, and "Cloud-catching Pavilion" on Moon Peak, where you
can get a clear view of the city.
Solitary Beauty Peak and Wave-subduing
Hill can be seen from Folded Brocade Hill.
The Hill is
not very high and can be climbed in a half an hour to an hour.
