Green Lotus Peak


Lies southeast of Yangshuo town and faces Li River, this peak rises out of the river like a lotus. Hence the name Green Lotus Peak. It is the most famous hill in Yangshuo.
Green Lotus Peak, flat and smooth, resembles a mirror in its front view. So people also named it Jianshan Hill (Mirror Hill). Looking the hill after passing it, one finds the hill silently floating on water like an elegant budding green lotus, forming an enchanting scene.

Green Lotus Peak has many inscriptions on its cliffs, in which the 5-meter-long Chinese character "Dai" caved in the Qing dynasty is the most famous. The later generations endowed the character with a meanings "as the river and mountains unfold their greatness before your eyes, young lads, you should work hard to let your name pass down forever."
The best place to view the lotus is View Lotus Bridge. Built in 1978, the bridge is decorated with relief, which depict the landscape of Yangshuo. At the end of the bridge, three characters were caved which means there is the best suitable place to view the "lotus".
