“I believe that this is also called Piled Silk Hill in some brochures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

This is one of the karsk hills that you can climb - by steep stairs. It will give you a workout to get to the top, but it is worth it. You can see several of the waterways (rivers and lakes) in the surrounding area and plenty of other karsk hills in the background. As is common with parks in China there is a fee to enter. This park also features a wind cave, which is quite a pleasure if you visit on a warm day. On the way up to the top you can take a detour to the bird zoo and see peacocks, peahens, ducks and other various birds.

“Beautiful complex, the best views in Guiln”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed climbing the various hills and taking in the spectacular views at the Folded Brocade Hill complex. The entrance is not very far from Jingjiang Royal Residence / Solitary Beauty Peak - an easy 5 to 10 minutes walk. It was very peaceful there also, not very touristy at all.

“Must be beautiful on a sunny day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

We were not so lucky with the weather the day we climbed Diecai Hill. It was hot but very misty, almost looks like pollution in the air. The climb is not "a walk in the park" but not that hard either, for those who are not used for physical effort there are many stopping points with benches on the way up.

Another unfortunate issue for us was the extremely loud speaker comping from a "god knows what" of event in the other side of the river filling the air with the host's shouts followed by our beloved Gangnam Style, and this was while almost at the top...

“Brilliant vista”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

After going to elephant trunk hill, this place was amazing. Views back to Guilin (especially from Crane's Hill) were fantastic.

Go for sunset!

“Great Views of Guilin from the Hilltop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

To get to the top of the Folded Brocade hill is a fairly easy task of going up the stair-steps from within the hill which can take 20-30 minutes. After getting to the top, the views of Guilin and the surrounding hills and mountains are spectacular. The unique and beautiful mountains of this area is what makes Guilin such a great tourist attraction. Folded Brocade Hill is a must see place for first time visitors.
