Reed Flute Cave

Reed Flute Cave is near the Peach Blossom River in the North-west of Guilin. The main shopping part of the city is about 7km away. The cave gets its name from the reeds that grow near the cave being used to make flutes. The cave takes about an hour to explore. It is said to be the most famous cave in all of China.
