Reed Flute Cave, located in a hidden spot on Guangmin Hill about 3.2 miles northwest of Guilin, is Guilin's largest and most remarkable cave. It is named after the area's growth of the material that makes flute reeds.
This cave is 790 feet deep and allows visitors to walk for 550 yards of zigzagging stalactites and stalagmites in mesmerizing colors. Although the cave is naturally beautiful, artificial lighting is added to emphasize the likeness of the rock formations to animals and plants. One formation called The Crystal Palace of the Dragon King, resembles a miniature Guilin. Additionally, there are over 70 wall inscriptions from the Tang Period (618-907) speaking poetically about the history of the cave.
