Yao Mountain,Guilin

It received its name from a Yao emperor temple, which was built on the top of the mountain in the Tang dynasty. Each season offers a different view. In spring azalea flowers are everywhere, in summer the bamboo compete with each other for greenness and in autumn the red maples with falling leaves make the hill appear as though it's afire. The winter's snow on mountains is as transparent as pure crystal.

The 1,416.18 meter long cable car connects the top and the foot is completed in 1996. Visitors can easily get to the top of Yao Mountain by this cable car and get bird's-eye views of wonderful peaks and surrounds.
