Located at the Peach Blossom (Taohua) River bank, in the northwest of the Guilin City and 6 kilometers away from the Guilin downtown, the Reed Flute Cave is a famous landscape of caves, rivers and mountains.
The cave is like a grand and magnificent underground palace that made of gemstones, corals and jadeites. The stalactites that are in different poses are piled up with the sediments of calcium carbonate hundreds of years ago. Therefore, the cave is kindly regarded as “the natural art palace”.
|What to See/Do:||There are numerous sights here that dazzle visitors. Since Tang Dynasty, there are lots of tourists visiting here. The 77 murals or calligraphy works bring people back to the ancient life and offer the chance to experience the ancient culture. Since the cave was discovered and exploited in 1959, restaurants, tea houses, waterside pavilions, ponds or pools, curving bridges, sightseeing-boats and flowers and plants are built or added to offer more convenience and views for tourists, thus it became a must–see attraction for tourists who travel to Guilin. The most distinctive feature here are the many stalactites, stalagmites and stalagnates. Walking back and forth between the serried stalagnates with the colorful lights, you will feel like that you are standing in a fairyland.|
