The silver Cave, located 85 km south
of Guilin, 25 km from Yangshuo county, is a splendid
limestone cave. It runs through 12 mountains and
a roundabout tour covers approximately 2 km.
The cave is deep and irregular, with
a great number of stalactites of thousand charms,
which, in lights glint like silver, hence the
name of the cave. These majestic, diamond-like
stalactites decorate the cave and make it into
a dazzling place. The cave can be divided into
three sections: upper cave, lobby and the lower
cave, with dozens of distinctive scenery.
The surrounding mountains, pointed
jade-like hills, scattering peach trees and flaming
wide flowers make the silver cave resort appear
to be a huge natural pot. A visit here is often
escorted by the fragrance from the flowers and
the mellow fruits.
Officially opened to the tourists
in 1999, it is now a soaring attraction in Guilin.
