Known as "the Palace of Natural Arts”, Reed Flute Cave is located in the northwest of Guilin City, 5 kilometers away from the center of the city. It is a natural limestone cave and has been one of Guilin’s most interesting attractions for over 1200 years. Tourists began to visit here in the Tang Dynasty. There are 77 stone inscriptions covering many years of history. The cave got its name from the type of reed growing outside, which can be made into melodious flutes.
