And illuminated by colored lighting, this fantastic world of stunning sceneries is found in many variations along 240 meters long cave. Walking through the serried stone pillars on changing spots, a feeling of here is the paradise Gods live. This natural limestone cave with multicolored lighting has been one of the Guilin’s "Must see" marvelous attractions for over 1,200 years, and got the name from the type of reed growing outside, which could be made into melodious flutes.
Elephant Trunk Hill
Located at the confluence of the Taohua River and the Lijiang River, Elephant Trunk Hill is just like a huge elephant drinking water from the river with its trunk, hence the name. Shui Yue Cave (Water Moon Cave), the round opening which is between the trunk and the legs, got the name because the reflection of the moon could be seen through the arch, and it looks like it is under the water and floating on the surface of the water at the same time. It will be romantic to boat through the semi-round cave when the river is rich in water with “half moon” under the water. A must see attraction of Guilin.

The comfortable Li River cruise will take approximately 4 hours from the bustle of city life and into a peaceful and relaxing world. The only thing you need to do is bring your imagination, a camera, and keep your eyes open, as the stunning Karst landscape will give you a surprise around each bend of the Li River flows under the clear blue sky.

Cycling in Yangshuo County
As the old saying goes, "Guilin's scenery is the most beautiful in the world, Yangshuo's scenery is far more superior to that of Guilin's".

Cycling is a great idea and the easiest way to get around in the area of Yangshuo to see some of the spectacular landscapes.
