Fubo Hill

Fubo Hill



Fubo HillThe beautiful Fubo Hill, in the northeast of the city, is well known as the "Wonderland on Wave" with its
exquisite peak rising high and its foot half in water and half on land. The east of the cave curbs the river stream
, causing the formation of a deep pool, so the hill is named Fubo Hill (Wave-Curbing Hill).

With half of the hill stretching into the river, Fubo Hill, which is 120 meters long, 60 meters wide and 213
meters in elevation, stands solitarily in the northeast of the city and west bank of Li River.  

At the southern foot of the hill is a garden full of bamboos, palm trees and flowers, a quite and interesting
place. On top of the hill one will see an exquisite scenery like a traditional Chinese painting.





There is a stone path on the southern side of the hill. Half way up the hill is a Sight-Seeing Terrace from which
you can see the Old Man Hill northwest to it, resembling an old man in the hood looking up to the south. It is so
life-like that you can even distinguish his brow and beard. The way from the Sight-Seeing Terrace to the summit of the hill can be compared with
the way to the West Peak in the Hua Mountain. It is narrow and steep. Only the brave ones dare to scale the heights and find the climbing
interesting.

At the foot of the hill is the famous Pearl-Returning Cave, which is composed of many side-caves, linked like a labyrinth. A several-meter stalactite
column, thick on top and tapering downwards, hangs all the way from the ceiling the ground. It is so strange that no visitors will see it without
amazement. Since the space between the column and the ground seems to be the result of a sword cut it is named Sword Testing Stone, general
Fubo is said to have tested his sword by cutting what was originally a stone pillar and has left a crevice at the bottom ever since.

Fubo HillAt the entrance gate of the park, there is a huge iron bell at the weight of over 2,500 kilograms and a
big boiler, which is said to cook meals for over 1,000 people. These are two relics from a Qing
Dynasty temple and the inscriptions on them are still discernible.

The Fubo Hill now still has a lot of places of interest, such as Kuishui Ting (Kui Stream Pavilion),
Tingtao Pavilion (Listening to Waves), Banshan Ting (Half the Hill Pavilion), , Qianfo Cave
(Thousand-Buddha Cave) and Coral Cave.
