This amazingly big limestone cave is full of stalagmites and stalactites that are cleverly illuminated by a dazzling array of colors. The Reed Flute Cave in Guilin, Guangxi, China is a major landmark and tourist attraction – the natural rock formations, illuminated with artificial light, make it one of the most extraordinary underground scenes in all of China.

The 180 million year old cave is 240 meters long and has areas lit by different colours.

As photographer Niranj Vaidyanathan states about his first-hand experience, “Artificial lighting provided inside the caves makes the stalactite and stalagmite formations look lovely. Each cave and section has unique formations and will keep the visitor mesmerized throughout. Word of advice – try not to book a package tour along with a big group of unknown people with a tour operator as you only have very limited time of about an hour or so to spend within the caves. Try booking an individual package so that you can make your own agenda if you’re visiting Guilin. It’s a lovely city.”
