The Reed Flute Cave is named for the unusual reeds growing around it that can be made into flutes. The cave is more than 180 million years old and has been an attraction for over 1200 years. Refugees fleeing Japanese troops rediscovered it in the 1940’s. Over 70 inscriptions written in ink that date back to the Tang Dynasty, 729 AD, reveal that this cave had been a tourist attraction in ancient times. The limestone formations that formed the karst mountains also created this cave with its fantastic array of stalactites and stalagmites. Multi-colored lighting adds to the drama.
