TOUR ITINERARY

Tour code:
GWA-GL-BUS2
Step 1 Your tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel by 9:00am, and we will make our way to visit Reed Flute Cave.
Step 2

The Reed Flute Cave (Ludi Yan) is a fascinating gallery of natural sculpture (limestone cave formations), now enhanced by multicolored lighting, which has been one of Guilin’s many interesting attractions for over 1200 years. It rates as one of the top four tourist sites in the city. The cave is about 240 meters long and a tour lasts about one hour. Along the u-shaped route, you will have ample time see the oddly shaped rocks and stone pillars while the guide narrates interesting stories about them. Illuminated by the colored lights, the cave looks like a dazzling underground palace. That’s why the cave is also known as the Nature’s Art Palace. (40 min)

 

Step 3

Our next stop on today’s tour is Fubo Hill. Fubo (wave-subduing) Hill to the northeast of downtown Guilin contains the Xinxi Marquis Temple, which was built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). The title of Xinxi Marquis was given to Fubo General Ma Yuan, hence the name of the mountain. Half of the graceful lone peak of the hill is in the river and the other half is on land. During flood season turbulent currents explode against the hill rocks. On top of the hill one sees exquisite scenery that appears like a traditional Chinese painting. Inside the "Return the Pearl" Cave, also known as Fubo Cave in the mountainside, there is the "Try the Sword" Rock, the 1,000-Buddha Crag (Buddha images carved on stone), and many carvings on the cave walls. Among the best carvings is a self-portrait of Mi Fu, a famous painter, and a poem by Fan Dacheng, a famous poet, both from the Song Dynasty (960-1279). (30 min)

 

Step 4

On our way to the Seven Stars cave, we’ll stop to admire the Elephant Trunk Hill. Located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River in the south central area of Guilin City, it looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is the symbol of Guilin and its karst landscape. (30 min)

 

Step 5

We will arrive at Seven Star Cave. Seven Star cave got its name for the seven peaks supposed to resemble the star pattern of the Big Dipper constellation nearby - four peaks in the north are called Putuo Hill, three in the south are called Lunar Hill. The famous Seven Star cave is just located at the halfway the Putuo Hill. The cave is famous for its stalactites of various shapes inside. The cave is divided into three parts. The upper part is so high and steep that one can hardly reach while the lower part is an underground river channel. The middle part, an 814-meter-long tunnel, with the widest place of 49 meters and the highest of 27 meters, serves as the main touring area. The temperature in this cave remains 20 degrees all the year round, providing a comfortable condition for visitors. Since Sui and Tang dynasties, the cave has been a favorite tour resort, and many visiting poets, writers, scholars and nobles once left their inscriptions on the wall. (90 min)
