The Elephant Trunk Hill
Situated at the joint of Lijiang and Yangjiang Rivers,the Elephant Trunk Hill, as its name suggests, looks like a giant elephant drinking water with its trunk. Half way up the hill there is a cave which goes through the hill and serves as the eyes of the "elephant". Between the trunk and the legs is a still bigger cave with the shape of a bright moon hanging over the river, hence the name "Moon-over-Water Cave". On the top of the hill is a pagoda, named Puxian Pagoda, erected in the Ming Dynasty,which resembles a sword hilt, or a magic vase. The Elephant Trunk Hill is commonly regarded as the emblem of Guilin.
