Seven Star Park

seven star parkSeven Star Park is on the eastern side of the Li-River in the Guilin city. The park takes its name from its seven peaks that resemble the pattern of the Big Dipper constellation. This delightful park that has been landscaped to encompass hills and natural waterways is a great favorite with the local people and tourists alike.

The park takes its name from the fact that the four peaks on Putuo Hill and the three peaks on Crescent Hill that form the main part of the park replicate the pattern of the seven stars in the Ursa Major constellation (Great bear or Big Dipper).

A further hill, known as Camel Hill is another attraction of the park. This limestone outcrop looks exactly like a camel resting among the trees. The main entrance to the park is over the Flower Bridge [Hua Qiao], an elegant arched structure dating from the Song Dynasty that crosses the confluence of Xiaodongjiang and Lingjian Stream that passes through the park.

A further two-minute walk leads to Seven Stars Cave. Eroded by water over thousands of years, the cave is a wonderland of stalactites, stone pillars and rock formations resulting from carbonate deposition. However, for its splendor, the Seven Stars Cave is overshadowed by the awe-inspiring Reed Flute Cave to be found five kilometers to the northwest of the City.
