Reflecting Pool, Reed Flute Cave
Submitted: Apr 17, '09
Great Travel Moment
All of China?s beauty, folklore, and mystery does not exist above ground. A trip through this cave is a must see. The Chinese have given each formation a legendary or poetic name, the one pictured is the Reflecting Pool, among others titled the Crystal Place, Dragon Pagoda, Virgin Forest, Flower and Fruit Mountain, the story behind each is quite fun. We were struck by the natural beauty of this cave, highlighted by the lighting and narration of our guide made it one of our favorite takes in China. The cave is not far from the City of Guilin where a tourist can obtain a river cruise through the natural Limestone structures of the Li River which have been an inspiration for poets and artist for thousands of year. The scenery in this area of China is simply breathtaking, highly recommended for anyone considering traveling in China.
