Reed Flute Cave

Reed Flute Cave
China Guilin Reed Flute Cave
 

Of the many caves in the Guilin area, Reed Flute Cave in the northwestern suburbs is the most famous. Its name derives from the reeds at its entrance which were once used to make flutes; First discovered during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the cave was a frequent refuge for the local population to escape bandits and the ravages of war. Since 1959, it has been transformed into a tourist attraction. A 500 m. (164 ft.) trail winds past unusual stalactite and stalagmite formations which colored lights cause to resemble coral, agate, amber, and jade. With prompting from tour guides, their shape will conjure up images of old trees, dense shrubs, ferocious beasts, and human forms. Inside the cave is a vast grotto, known as Crystal Palace, capable of holding up to 1,000 people.

According to legend, the stone pillar in the grotto is the Dragon King's magic needle, used as a weapon by the Monkey King in the immensely popular Chinese fable and novel Journey to the West. The underground path opens onto a terrace which affords a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains, farmland, and river courses.
