Yangshuo Silver Cave

Guilin is a land blessed with sublime Karst topography and engaging tribe culture. Above the ground, countless dramatic peaks and sleepy fishing hamlets reign while under the earth, caves and rivers dominate.

Silver Cave

From the most famous to the least-known, Guilin has a wide spectrum of caves promises not only visual feast but also mind-blowing experience. From nature funs and photographers to thrill-seekers, people of all interests can seek a piece of paradise here. Hailing from Yangshou, Silver Cave(银子岩) stands out as the biggest Karst cave spotted by far in Guilin. It runs through 12 peaks and gets its name from an ocean of sparkling stalactites and stalagmites. Thanks to it, a reservoir will disappear overnight, or a giant sinkhole will pop up. I have explored China Top Six Caves already. Silver Cave is not the longest, biggest or best-equipped, but regarding the number and diversity of limestone formations, it can rival the rest.

Silver Cave consists of an upper cave, a middle cave and a giant hall.
The upper two layers belong to dry land while the lower is only accessible by boat. An underground river emerges from nowhere and loses its way amid the labyrinth of rocks, light and color. Its water is crystal-clear, and you can discern fish in it easily.

 Silver Cave is so charming that even after you visited Reed-Flute Cave, Seven Star Cave and the less famous Yangshuo Lotus Cave, you will still be surprised and inspired.

Many interesting names are given to prominent sights, such as Longsheng Rice Terraces, the Great Wall and Huaqing Pool (the deluxe swimming pool of Yang Guifei, one of the Top Four Beauties of ancient China). Among all the wonders, “Three Wonders” and “Three Treasures” are super stars and promise great photograph opportunities.

Top Three Wonders of Silver Cave

Cascading Waterfall Draping from Snow Mountain: measuring over 20-m long, the sheer size and beauty of this stalactite won’t fail to impress you. Against the light, it looks like a giant silver waterfall cascades from above. This wonder exemplifies stalactites of various ages, from cradle to candle. Snow white when young, they will darken when mature. During their prime age, they will adopt a tinge of yellow, while in twilight age, they will become grayish yellow or even grayish-black.

Music Screen: consisting of limestone pieces of various thickness and sizes, it is the best developed stone screen in guangxi. Knocked gently, it will produce a surreal and fabulous sound, hence the name.

Yaochi Fairyland: in this site, you can stare into a mirror-like pool to marvel at the mirage of stalactites and stalagmites. This pool gives them depth and an impenetrable feeling.

Hunyuan Pearl Umbrella: bigger in both ends, it is thin in the middle and bears great similarity to a folded umbrella. Legend has it that this umbrella can subdue evils.
However, scientists hold less romantic view and are still working on come up with a rational explanation.
