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
