Reed Flute Cave & Yao mountain & Daxu old town.
Yao Mountain lies in the east of Guilin, 12 km from the downtown. The highest peak is 903. 3 meters high and is the highest hill in Guilin.
It received its name from a Yao emperor temple, which was built the top of the mountain in the Tang Dynasty. Each season offers a different view. In spring azalea flowers are everywhere, in summer the bamboo compete with each other for greenness and in autumn the red maples with falling leaves make the hill appear as though it's a fire. The winter's snow on mountains is as transparent as pure crystal.
The Hill has several places of interest including Yao Temple, White Deer Temple, Jade Breast Pond and Tianci Field.
Reed Flute Cave: Located at the northwest of Guilin City, 5 kilometers away from the centre of the city, Reed Flute Cave is a famous scenic spot, mainly offering a magic fairyland of stalactites, stalagmites, stone columns, curtains and flowers in fantastic shapes and colors while appreciating landscape and rural scenery.
