Upon arriving at the cave, your tour guide will escort you to a special entrance on the second floor and privately guide you through the cave, away from the big tour groups. The Reed Flute Cave features some spectacular limestone cave scenery and most visitors take approximately 1 x hour within the cave.


Thereafter, depart Reed Flute Cave and travel approximately 20 minutes to Guilin’s famous landmark – Elephant Trunk Hill. Located in the center of the Li River, this world-famous scenic attraction resembles an Elephant drinking water from the Li River.


Afterwards, travel to a nearby famous local restaurant to eat Guilin’s most famous cuisine – Guilin Rice Noodles. No trip to Guilin is complete without tasting this delicious local specialty!

It takes approximately 10 – 15 minutes to walk from the base of Xianggong Hill to the upper viewpoint but visitors are rewarded with fantastic scenery!
