Reed Flute Cave
tips and insights


Wear shoes with good traction because some steps inside a cave can be a bit wet and slippery. Bring a sweater if a damp, 20C (68F) cave environment would make you feel uncomfortably cold. You will be in the cave for about one hour.


The name "Reed Flute" came about because reeds that are used for making flutes grew at the cave's entrance.

Seven Star Cave

For fewer fellow cave tourists, visit the worthy Seven Star Cave (also near Guilin). The visitor's route inside Reed Flute Cave is 240 meters (800 feet). The one inside Seven Star cave is longer.

Nearest major city

Guilin is in Guangxi province and lies roughly 1000 kilometers (600 miles) northwest of Hong Kong and Guangzhou (Canton), the capital of Guangdong province.
