“Combined with the chairlift at Yaoshan”

China Karst Geological Museum
Ranked #67 of 130 things to do in Guilin
Reviewed 9 April 2017 via mobile

This was an unexpected surprise as we were exiting the chairlift at Yaoshan. We had a rushed walk through as our ride was waiting to take us back to city center. A guide was there to explain the exhibits to visitors. The exhibits seem interesting though we didn't have time to appreciate. Unfortunately after the museum is the 'mandatory' shopping arcade with a labyrinth of passage to force you to shop, even if you haven't planned on doing so.

It was pretty cool to learn that a long time ago Guilins' landscape was submerged underwater, hence the mountains being made of limestone. After all the water drained and eroded the lands for over thousands of years, the unique karst mountains were formed. Even better, animal fossils and unique rocks from as back as the stone age period have been perfectly preserved in these mountains, and are available at this museum.(i'm not too sure if they are the originals, cause i doubt that they can trust a 6000 year old fossil to the public). All in all it doesn't hurt taking a stroll through the museum after a fun ride up the Yao mountain by cable car.
