Lotus Cave

Guangxi was once an ancient seabed. The region is rich in limestone. The karst limestone peaks make Yangshuo an international mecca for rock climbing. There are also many limestone caves like this one near Xingping. These formations, caused by drops of water falling in a shallow pool, resemble lotus flower blossoms.
Stalactites and columns.
