Solitary Beauty Peak
The Solitary Beauty Peak (Duxiufeng), located on the campus of Guangxi University in the centre of Guilin city, projects out from the ground like a giant spike. The hill creates a special light effect with its colour changing from purple to gold as the sun rises and sets. Therefore, it is also called "Purple-Golden Hill".
The climb to the peak is steep, but the view from the top is worth the effort as you'll be able to take in the surrounding countryside along with the Li River. At the bottom of the peak is the Wang Cheng, which was a Ming dynasty palace where the regional imperial exams used to be held.
