Land Relief Guangxi forms a tableland that descends in elevation from the north and northwest to the south and southeast. Elevations between 3, and 6, feet and 1, metres above sea level are reached at the edge of the Yunnan-Guizhou Yunguei Plateau in the northwest, the Jiuwan and Fenghuang mountain ranges in the north, and the Yuecheng Mountains in the northeast.
The greater part of the region is composed of hilly country lying at a height of between 1, to 3, feet to metres. In the west, the Duyang Mountains rise to some 6, feet 2, metres.
In the southeast, lowlands are situated at a height of between and 1, feet 90 and metres. The predominance of limestone gives many parts of Guangxi a spectacular type of landscape known as karstin which pinnacles and spires, caves and caverns, sinkholes, and subterranean streams abound.
Picturesque rocky hills, spires of grotesque proportions, and strangely shaped caves with all types of stalactites and stalagmites are found in many parts of this region, especially in the vicinity of Guilin.

Stands of fir, red pine, cedar, camphor, and rosewood are found in the north and west; oranges grow in profusion in the south; while the cassia tree, anise, and betel palm flourish in many parts of the region.
The two tree species of the coniferous genus Cathaya are found in the northeastern forests. In central and southern Guangxi, many denuded hillsides have been taken over by tall coarse grasses, which are used for fuel or as pasturage for young water buffalo.
Prominent types of wildlife include bison, boars, bears, gibbons a kind of apehedgehogs, and cockatoos.
