We had a stop here before leaving Guilin to go back to Beijing. The caves are beautifully lit which really show off the beauty of them. You have to use your imagination to see some of the stories that are told. Well worth a visit.

We were on a Vantage trip and this was included. Glad it was, because it was really beautiful. It has incredible formations and the lighting highlights them very well. There was water dripping from the ceiling at times. A great view of the inside of this land!

If you don't have a guide ensure that you find out about the cave - there are specific formations which are thought to look like objects/animals. The lighting is spectacular. It is about an hour and a half drive from Yangshou village. We tagged this on to the River Li Cruise and were not disappointed.

When visiting Guilin, don't settle for just the famous river cruise. Take to the city and make sure your visit includes the Reed flute cave. It is a large size, active and impressive stalagmite and stalactite cave. Take a guided tour as it will enhance the experience. The cave is lit with dramatic flood-lights and the sight is enchanting!

The cave was well lit to give it depth and tone. Very colorful lights. Many tour guides. I was glad I went.

This is a well preserved cave with lots of caverns and large limestone formations. It is fairly easy to walk around with lots of new pathways and small staircases. The walkways are wide and the ceilings high. The cave is not brightly lit as this would detract from the lighting that has been installed to highlight the more interesting formations.... More

We enjoyed our cave tour with our guide as she pointed out the different formations and gave a story behind each one. You need to have an imagination and be able to visualise the story.

The cave - very roomy, no problem for the one of us who is quite claustrophobic - was enhanced or defaced (depending on one's point of view) by very artistically place lighting. A short video depicting millions of years was riveting.
