Have you ever heard of the middle east folklore tale Alibaba and the 40 thieves; where the treasure 💰 is hidden inside the cave. What if I say, they do have a similar cave in China, well don't get ready for your gold rush 😛; it is again a folklore tale told in Guilin about the Reed flute cave with lot of treasure hidden inside. In my eyes, the richness lies in the cave's beauty itself; where it is upto your imagination to get the most out of it. This largest karst cave is located some 80 kilometres 🚗 away from the main city at the Lipu county. You can take a taxi and reach here; and the entrance fee 🎟 is 80 rmb. The flying waterfall 💧 section is a must see one; while the other sections gives you different perspective of shapes of the cave. A good spot to spend a day, if you're in Guilin. #chinatravel #couplestrip
Karst Peak Paradise.
From rafting down the Li River to hiking karst hills, Guilin is a great mix of city and nature. In just three days, I was able to witness the beauty of the karst hills in Guilin, marvel at the underground caves featuring huge stalactites and stalagmite formations in the Reed Flute Cave, hike up Diecai Hill for a magnificent view of the city against the multitude of peaks, as well as browse a local market and walk around Elephant Trunk Hill. There’s so much for explore here, and would certainly be worth another trip to uncover even more gems this city has to offer.
