Some of the most extraordinary scenery is hidden underground. For hundreds of thousands of years water has filtered through the limestone and carved out these enormous caves. The constant drip of mineral rich water has created fantastic stalactites and stalagmites in the most extraordinary forms.
Here in the very aptly named Through Hill Caves in Guilin, and the Silver Caves in Yangshuo, coloured lighting has been used to 'enhance' the experience. The caves are very popular, and so, too many people are guided through the caves as quickly as possible which must have some effect on the nature of the caves themselves.
