Fubo Hill or the Wave-Subduing Hill is about 120 meters long, 213 meters in height and 60 meters wide. It stands to the northeast of the city and located on the west bank of Li River having the half of this hill stretched into the river. Waves run back when they meet the blocks and thus the name was given as wave-subduing Hill. There is one tale that Ma Yuan who was the General Fubo of the Han Dynasty once passed by the Guilin on the southern expedition. He has poured all the pearls which he was carrying into the river and therefore the name of this river was given after his name.
Pearl-Returning cave or Huangzhu dong is situated on the southern slope of this hill. There is a legend that once a fisherman has entered the cave and has saw an old man who was sleeping with the pearly by his side. It is believed that the fisherman has stolen the pearl and took it to his home. After that, someone told him that these pearls belong to the Dragon king and if not returned, he will get angry. That is why this cave is called as Return the Pearly Cave.
There is a rock inside the Pearl-Returning Cave called as Sword-Testing Rock, which hangs from the ceiling and nearly touching the ground. It is said that General Fubo has tested his sword by cutting what was known as the stone pillar and left the crevice at the bottom since then. There is Thousand-Buddha Cave at the end of this cave. This cave is having 250 statues of Buddha and more than hundred carved inscription of different periods. Most of these statues are the works of Tang and Song dynasty. At the western side of this cave, there is a flight of steps leading to Kuishui Pavilion. You can have the bird eye view of Li River from this place.
There is a rock by the side of the river. It is a legend saying that the emperor has tested his swords there for the sharpness and the rock is called as cleft rock. On the eastern side there is a winding corridor, a Tingtao Pavillion and a tea house which is build on the cliff of this hill.
