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.Recommended for:
