    Ludi Cave, also called Reed Flute Cave, locates at the northwest of Guilin City, 5 kilometers away from the city center. The cave is a famous scenic spot, mainly offering a magic fairyland of stalactites, stalagmites, stone columns, curtains and flowers in fantastic shapes and colours while appreciating landscape and rural scenery.

    The length of the cave is 2400 meters, whereas the whole distance of touring can last 500 meters. There are too many things for the eyes to take in. The natural beauty of a large amount of stalactites and stalagmites, with countless variety of remarkable scenes and vistors in the cave could undoubtedly evoke breathless admiration from domestic and foreign visitors.
Art Palace of the Nature
    One grotto, which called the Crystal Palace of the Dragon King, can hold about 1000 people. During the war, the grotto once served as an air-raid shelter. Over 70 wall inscriptions from the Tang dynasty (618-907) were found in the walls, suggesting that the cave once been traveled by people in every dynasty. The highlight in this cave is a great slab of white rock hanging from a ledge like a cataract, with a human-shaped stalactite on its opposite.

    It was said that a visiting scholar tried to write a poem depicting the beauty of the cave. It cost him so much time to find the right words that he finally turned to stone. Another story goes that the slab originally was the Dragon King's needle. The Monkey King used it as a weapon to defeat the dragon's army and finally left it in the cave.

    The cave was opened to public in 1962. Famed as the Palace of Natural Art, the cave is now equipped with artificial lighting system to emphasize visiting effect.
