Lijiang River
The Lijiang River is crystal clear. Along its banks fantastic peaks rise straight up like forest. Green hills and blue water merge, showing myriad forms of exquisite beauty. There are green bamboos in various shapes, farmlands chequered with green crops, together with the farm houses and fishing boats on the river.
Yangshuo
Surrounded by 10 peaks, Yangshuo looks like a green lotus. Houses are dotted among the rows od mountain peaks. The scenery here is reputed to be Guilin’s best.
Seven Star Cave
Seven Star Cave is the biggest and the most fascinating one in Guilin. It has three layers. The upper one is roughly 8-12 meters higher than the middle one, but the latter abound with splendid scenic spots. The 1000 meters long tunnel is a gallery of stalactites and stalagmites of the most spectacular shapes and forms.
Elephant Trunk Hill
At the confluence of Lijiang River and Yangjiang River, a rock hill with a hole in it gives the rock itself the appearance of an elephant sipping water with its trunk, hence the name. Between the trunk and the body, there is a round-shaped space, known as water-moon arch. On a moonlit night, looking at its silhouette from a small boat, you get a fantastic picture.
Reed-Flute Cave
Situated at the south-foot of Guangming Hill, the cave is a huge and fantastic cavern eroded out of karst formation. It is lined along its entire 500-meter zigzag length with stalactires and stalagmites in the shape of agination forms. Beautiful, colorful, and fantastic, the cave has been widely acclaimed as an “Art Gallery of Nature”.
