Shuiyue Cave Moon in the Water

Scenes from the City of Guilin

12. Moon in the Water Cave

Between the trunk and the legs of the elephant is a cave, in the shape of a full moon, penetrating the hill from side to side. People named it "Moon-over-Water Cave." When the waters wave and the moonlight gleams, the scene is exceedingly enchanting. On the walls in and around this cave, over 70 inscriptions from the Tang and Song dynasties were found, praising the beauty of hills and waters nearby. Small boats can enter the cave when the river water level permits.
