Discovered in 1959, Reef Flute Cave got its name from the Reeds that once used to inhabit the entrance of the cave. Locals used to make flutes out of these reeds; thus, the name today.
Inside this cave is a spectacular display of stalactites, stalagmites and other rock formations illuminated by colorful lights. It’s around a 40-minute sight-seeing tour with various formations and areas to be seen inside such as: Tower-shaped Pine, Crystal Palace, and many more.
I personally feel it’s a fun, light (pun intended) way to appreciate an old and ancient (700,000 year old!!) landmark. 😄
Xiangbi Mountain, also known as Elephant Trunk Hill, is the main symbol and tourist attraction of Guilin, China. The name was derived from the similarity of the limestone formation to that of an elephant drinking water from the river. 🐘
I remember going here a few years back and was really astounded by the beauty and ability of the locals to preserve such an iconic landmark for them. A recommended place if you’re one to prefer the quiet scenes of nature over the hustles and bustles of a city. 🍃
