Unleash Your Imagination at the Reed Flute Cave.
Visit Reed Flute Cave where you will see fantastic stalactite and stalagmite formations, artfully illuminated by multi-colored lights. A long pathway opens onto a spectacular view of Guilin. The entrance to the Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan) lies at the foot of Guangming Hill. It is around 600,000 years old and received its name from the reeds that hid the entrance to it until its discovery in 1956, and which were used for making flutes. From various archaeological finds, however, we know that it was once used as a place of refuge by local inhabitants.
The passage through this cave is 1,640 ft. long and leads along easily accessible paths and steps past a multitude of grotesquely formed stalagmites and stalactites. The center of the cavern is known as the Crystal Palace and can accommodate up to a thousand people. A row of stones in this hall is linked with a well-known legend, the combat between the king of the apes Sun Wukong and the Dragon King which took place in the Crystal Palace.
