Guilin is a comparatively small city in China. It does make a good stopover on the way to picturesque Yangshuo further down the Lijiang River but does have some scenery of its own worth making a stop for a few days. The landscapes are pretty amazing if you can climb those rocky karsts. I went through the Reed Flute Caves and climbed above them but it was too cloudy for any good photos. I did take some photos of the Reed Flute Caves but with a little point and shoot in dark caves you really don’t get good photos. The caves are lit up pretty well, and the internal caverns are large, but there are only so many slimy walls and stalactites worth taking pictures of. This is another good example of why I was ready for a better camera.
I went through the Reed Flute Caves and climbed above them but it was too cloudy for any good photos. This was on my way down, looking back toward the mountains where the caves are. I’ll have to be better prepared to take some good shots on my next travels here. Guilin really is a beautiful place, and I need to return with better equipment and more time to show what an amazing place it is.Mor Photos from China
