Reed Flute Cave
tips and insights

Reflecting pool

This pool enchants (unless a previous visitor has made ripples by mindlessly waving his hand in the pool's water).


Reed Flute Cave is large enough to hold over a thousand people at one time. Its space was used as an air raid shelter during the Second World War.


The Reed Flute Cave was created by an ancient underground river, which slowly eroded the interior of the limestone mountain.

Human distractions

Reed Flute can be crowded, with the voice of guides discordantly blaring on handheld megaphones. I recommend entering Reed Flute Cave when it first opens in the morning, before the tour groups arrive. This way, you can enjoy Reed Flute Cave in its irresistible mode, silent and serene.
