Cattle Gorge is located downstream of Mopan Dock. The Gorge draws its name from the multitude of rocks that take the shape of oxen and horses. At this location, Lijiang River splits into two minor rivers running in opposite directions, cutting the river islet into three smaller islets. Drawing inference from the vivid travel notes of famous Chinese geographer Xu Xiake, in ancient times, the waters of the river roared and tumbled against the cliffs. Today, the river only quietly murmurs. Later, the main stream was developed to accommodate sailing crafts and opened up as a channel for passenger ships. The surface of the river spreads wide and smooth with the three islets appearing to float on the river. It has become very attractive to tourists because the water here is extremely clear and calm and is a natural mirror making perfect images of the peaks. It is escorted by seven peaks at both sides of the Lijiang River resembling seven fairy ladies. A legend tells that the seven peaks are fairy girls from the heaven who took baths in the river. Enthralled by the charming scene, they stayed here and become the peaks .Green bamboo, lofty peaks and the blue sky reflected on the quiet waters create a spectacular scene. Right at the east end is the Hill of the Faithful Wife. At the hillside is a rock in the shape of woman with a baby on her back gazing far into the distance.

Solitary Beauty Peak is located in Guilin Prince City and is an integral part of the Prince City scenic area. People always describe it as the South Tianyi Column. The name derives from the renowned quote from Southern Dynasty (420-589) literature, ‘none can surpass this solitary peak in beauty’. The peak is also known as ‘Purple Golden Hill’, a reference to the purple color of the rocks in bright sunshine. The Peak has also been called ‘the pillar of the Southern sky.’ There are 306 stone steps leading up to the top, where visitors can see a great view of the city. The pavilion here is a famous viewing point. Rosy clouds of dawn and a sunset glow turn the peak into a giant with a purple gown draped over his shoulder and a golden sash tied around his waist, giving the peak its second name: Purple Mountain. Visitors have to climb 306 stone steps to reach the top of the mountain, where they can gain a bird view of the shimmering waters and marvelous mountains of Guilin. That is the reason why the first thing tourists visiting Guilin do is climb the Solitary Beauty Peak. On the mountain side there is Reading Rock, a location that served as a reading spot for Yanzhi Yan (a famous writer in the Northern and Southern Dynasties), and Crescent Lake. Solitary Beauty Peak is a must-see attraction for visitors to Guilin Prince City – don’t miss it!

Most visitors choose to drive along Taohua River when they go to Ludi Cave.  Taohua River, initially named as Yang River, originates from Simo Mountain in Guilin.  Flowing through Lingui, Lingchuan and Guilin, the about 25km long river was leaded into Li River in Ming dynasty.  Formed ten or twenty years ago, the wide river surface became narrower as the drop of water level.  The stream course in Guilin is in a shape of “s”, resembling three green streamers flowing on Guibei dissolution basin.  Because of the limestone geology, the river water is crystal clear.  Especially in Feiluan Bridge area, water flows as smooth as a mirror; clusters of oleanders bloom on the bank, reflecting on the river.  Surrounded by Hibiscus Mountain, Loin Mountain, the First Mountain, the whole view spot is picturesque rural scenery.  Moreover, the night scene in autumn is more beautiful under the pure moonlight.  An old saying praises Taohua River as that: Taohua River is not similar with Li River, but better than Li River.

The dignified and unsophisticated Feiluan Bridge is the first attractions when you arrive in Ludi Cave Scenic Spot.  Also called as Feilong Bridge, it is located on the crossover point of Taohua River and Ludi Road.  The bridge has a length of 62.4m and a width of 10.5m.  Bricked by black limestone, the bridge arch on the west side has 14 small arches to reduce the flood’s rash and the pressure of upside.  It is said that a village, named as Xiao’s village, was situated nearby the Taohua River.  Because its dam was destroyed by the flood every spring, people couldn’t go across the river and have to renovate it again and again.  All of them hoped to build a bridge so that they didn’t need to worry about the flood.  Finally, they decided to realize that dream.  Walking along the river and observed carefully, the stoneman picked a high point above the bam as abutment.  Before starting this construction, people killed chicken to memorize Lu Ban (the Chinese master carpenter).  To their surprise, the black chicken suddenly flied away during the slaughter.  At the same time, its tail was longer and longer; feathers became colorful and sparkling.  It didn’t stop flying until people found it beside the river.  However, it was not a chicken any more.  It changed to a beautiful male phoenix.  The villagers were confused but for an aged.  He said that maybe the phoenix was appointed by Lu Ban and the bridge should be situated there.  Hearing that, the phoenix flied to south with a colorful cloud.  Villagers followed the aged’s suggestion and constructed the bridge on the landing point of the phoenix.  Because of this story, the bridge was called as Feiluan (male phoenix) Bridge from then on.

The stalactites in the cave were naturally formed. The lines of the stalactites are fluent and seem very grand and magnificent. And under the lamplights, different artistic conceptions are created, making the well-ordered stone pillars, stalagmites, stalactites, stone flat, stone curtains resemble works of art. Those give people colorful imaginary space and artistic enjoyment. The whole cave is an art palace of nature. For example, the vibrant ‘rosy dawn of Lion Mountain’, the powerful ‘flying fall’, the virtuous ‘snow covered pines’, the immense primitive forest’, the gorgeous ‘crystal palace’, the elegant ‘listen to flute’ and stone snowman, stone vegetables, stone fish which are much like real objects. In the cave, you could not only appreciate the beautiful shapes of the stalactites which were created by nature, but also enjoy the beauty of color and artistic conception. Especially ‘crystal palace’ is the most wonderful sight spot. It is the widest place in the cave and the space of it just big enough to play and enjoy the chamber music. Without any help of audio equipment, it can have the effect like concert hall. The closed space, the irregular stone walls of ‘crystal cave’ provide the best condition for the voice reflection. The voice of music is clear and gentle almost without any weakening during the process of spread. This can promote the feature of chamber music reaching the acme. And the beautiful environment of ‘crystal palace’ provides a unique visional space which plays up music appreciation. ‘Crystal palace’ can make people understand the meaning of music and immerse themselves into the music, help them forget worries. It is the paradise of music.

The cultural relic of Three Drops of Water is at the foot of Mount Moon. The site of the relic stretches along the southwest side of the Mountain, and covers an area of 1 square kilometers. The relic had been hidden in earth for a long time and was not discovered by local residents until 1984 when they were laying the foundations to build a new school there. The builders were surprised when a terracotta jar and a zax appeared under their shovels. They dug on and found out that in the 30-cm-thick ash layer below the ground surface there was a large amount of pottery shards. The news got out and many archaeologists came to have a look. They soon defined the site and put it in the Neolithic Stone Age. It was named “Three Drops of Water” after the village where it is. Now the Three Drops of Water Cultural Relic has been listed as county-level-class heritage.

Another cultural relic, the White City Cultural Relic, is not far from Three Drops of Water. It is to the east of a highway that runs past Mount Moon. It is the remains of an ancient city built in 1106 in the Song Dynasty. At that time the city was named “the City of Peace”. Compared to Three Drops of Water, the White City Cultural Relic is much larger in size, covering an area of a total of 6.4 square kilometers.
