Big Banyan Tree
The Big Banyan Tree is located on the west bank of Jinbao River approximately 7.5km south of Yangshuo. It is said to have a history of nearly 1,400 years and has survived centuries of wind and rain. The Big Banyan Tree is now 17 meters high, 7.1 meters around the main trunk, and spans an area of 1000 square meters. As a major tourist attraction, the enormous Banyan is famous for its age and towering beauty.
Legends goes that Liu Sanjie throw embroidered ball to A Niu brother and they secretly engaged here. The big banyan was the matchmaker for them. At first A Niu did not dare to pick up the embroidered ball, so Liu Sanjie asked the old tree to tell A Niu her affection for him, then A Niu picked up the ball and engaged with her.
To the south of the Big Banyan Tree is Moon Hill. A village under the hill offers you a chance to experience true village life free from metropolitan stresses and troubles. Under a mysterious layer of haze you will find tranquil scenery comprised of leveled rice terraces, crystal brooks.
