Fubo Hill (Fubo Shan)
Fubo Hill is also known as “Wave Subduing Hill” due to its position right on the river, interrupting the current. Like many peaks in the area it’s more a vertical rock eruption than a hill, with its peak allowing magnificent views of the city and surrounding countryside. The sheer slopes are complemented by pavilions, including a tea house.
At Fubo’s foot is the natural “Pearl-Retreating Cave” whose walls have been embellished over the centuries with Buddhist carvings and outstanding examples of Chinese calligraphy.
Inside the cave a rock pillar descends from the “roof” and hovers above the ground leaving two fingers’ worth of space. It's the subject of competing myths; decide for yourself if it resembles a sword thrust at the ground, or was in fact split by a sword-wielding general.
Fubo Hill is in the north of Guilin near Solitary Beauty Park, and can be reached by the free tourist bus 58.
