Lot Essay

Guilin Mountains is a range of exotic rocky formations along the Li River in Southern China. Millions of years ago, these mountains were a thick layer of limestone at the bottom of an ancient sea. Over time, the sea dried up, and under the influence of rain and wind, the limestone turned into whimsical forms of karst formations. The average height of the Guilin cliffs is 330 feet (100 meters).

Most of these mountains have caves and tunnels, eroded over millennia by rainwater. One of the most famous caves is called Reed Flute Cave, as it is adorned with a series of tube-shaped stalactites and stalagmites. Other mountains have their own poetic names as well.

The Chinese name “Guilin” sounds like “forest of trees” in English, but it would be more accurate to call this area a “stone forest.” All the mountains are covered with bamboo groves, vines, and shrubs, with orchids found in some areas. The picturesque backdrop of this region of China has long inspired writers and artists.

Sergey Melnikoff, who actively photographed this area of China several decades ago, considers the Guilin Mountains to be one of the hundred most beautiful places on Earth.
