    This almost 800-foot-long limestone karst cave housed an impressive collection of stalactites and stalagmites even before they turned the lights on—more than 70 graffiti-like inscriptions date as far back as the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 792). But now, vividly awash in rainbow lights, it’s a Technicolor wonderland. Photograph away at formations anointed with poetic names such as Pines in the Snow, Dragon Pagoda, and Sky-Scraping Twin. The cave is an easy three miles northwest of Guilin and gets its name from the type of reeds that grew outside.

Description

This is hands down the most beautiful of Guilin's caves and it is extremely popular. Visiting early in the morning or late in the afternoon will help you avoid the worst of the crowds, but the Chinese guide will not start the 40 minute tour until there is a group of 20 or more tourists. The caves are lit by hundreds of colored lights and the limestone mounds are reflected in pools. The most spectacular is the Crystal Palace of the Dragon King, which is said to have been an air-raid shelter during WWII.
