It is not only Guilin's exterior that has incomparable natural beauty; the grotto network of the Reed Flute Cave offers a stunning visual experience which has inspired and enticed visitors for over 1,000 years. A natural limestone cave over 180 million years old, the Reed Flute Cave is one of Guilin's many highlights.

It is said that the cave received its name from the lush green reeds that used to grow outside its entrance. The shape and texture of the reeds allowed the local people to shape this tall grass into a flute-like object, hence the name Reed Flute Cave.

The features that make the Reed Flute Cave both unusual and fascinating are its range of stalagmites and stalactites of all different shapes and sizes. Their natural beauty is then enhanced by the vibrant colours of the light show used to illuminated and highlight their jagged shapes for the admiration of the visitor.

Within the caves also are 70 inscriptions written in ink which are said to date back the Tang Dynasty. Their content gives insight into the role of the cave as a place of wonder since ancient times and show that the Reed Flute Cave has been seen as a visitor's spot for generations.

The Reed Flute Cave is a must-see destination on any visit to Guilin. With its selection of stalagmites and stalactites, colourful displays and grand natural architecture, the Reed Flute Cave is a library of treasures and enjoyment.
