Reed Flute Cave
The Reed Flute Cave is situated on Guangming Hill, a small hill around 4 kilometres northwest of downtown Guilin. It is so called for the fact that a large area of reeds had grown in this region during ancient times and the reeds had been used for making flutes and pipes.
The cave is about 240 metres deep and visitors will walk for an hour through a zigzagging sea of stalactites and stalagmites. In the multi-colour artificial lights, the various rock formations inside form what can only be described as a magical effect. People call this cave a Natural Arts Palace.
The cave is also well-known for its over 70 wall inscriptions from the Tang Period which bear eloquent witness to the cave's long history.
