The cave is an amazing feat of nature. I am sure many people would love this but for us it was just ok. The cave is stunning but the experience to see the cave is just ok. There were a lot of people (of course)...More

This was a nice cave to visit. Lights inside and suggestions on what the various shapes look like all lit up with different colors. Loved watching the guy palm and finger paint the Li River in the gift shop on the way out.

Enjoyed seeing this cave and hearing the history. Having visited multiple caves, I prefer the natural beauty of white/yellow-white lights on the rocks. Colored lights make for interesting visuals, but detract from the natural beauty. Crowded and very noisy and many "pushy" people making stairs...More

We visited here with our private guide and really enjoyed it. The rock formations are very beautiful and the lights make a nice touch, I thought that it kind of sounded a bit tacky before I visited however this was not the case in reality....More

This cave is, of course, already dead. The ecosystem probably died decades ago due to it being open constantly to the public and the sheer amount of tourists that come through and breathe here. But no matter, this is a must see in the are....More

One of the most extensive cave systems we've seen. The cave features are all well illuminated and the names of the features are a delight (e.g. the snowman). Written inscriptions on the walls date back more than 1,000 years. A minor irritation is the group...More

Hi, I am planning on taking a taxi from my hotel the Lijiang Waterfall to the Reed Flute Cave. I would like to know will I be able to catch a taxi back to the hotel? Planning on doing this solo.
