Guilins Awesome mountains!

There are lot's of cool Mountains to climb in Guilin! Alot of these Gumdrop shaped Mountains have steps leading to the top. I always expected to see a 400-Year old wiseman sitting at the top saying "Welcome Grasshoppah" But I didn't see any! But the views are great! You will have to be in decent shape to get to the top of them as I didn't see any Elevators. But I'm sure they're thinking about them! I read about lot's of tourists in Guilin but I was there in February and it was cold and the tourists were hiding! WARNING!! All of the tips here on my Guilin page are based off a trip that I did in 1987. So the stories are real but don't use any of the prices for current trips!! You may be disappointed! But for sure you should go to Guilin!!

    Nice little page Scott. If I go to China within the next 12-24 months, perhaps I'll include a visit here.

    Good thinking, Scott. Going to the caves when it was raining was a great idea. This looks to be a very interesting area. Great job.
