Then we move back for another landmark of the city, Elephant Trunk Hill. It is located right at the heart of the city at the confluence of Peach Blossom and Li River. The hill has u–shaped cave in the front making it looks like a giant elephant drinking water in the river. It is a typical scenery of karst topography in Guangxi area. We end up the day with a leisure walk along the lakefront trail to absorb in the views that the garden-like city provides. Optional evening cruise over the four lakes is also very popular.
After an early breakfast, we drive about 1.5 hour to Longji Scenic Area which covers several villages featuring terraces fields. Since Yuan Dynasty, people here began to construct the fields innovative on the mountains. Now, the existing paddy fields covers an area of 66 square kilometers. Local People still grows the rice and the whole rice terrace fields take on green color in Jun and August, and become yellow layer of rip rice in late Sep and Oct. And that was always considered as the most beautiful scenes. However, we are sure the fields are impressive at any time. The cascading terraces are astonishing when covered with snow in winter, or filled with water in Spring.
