This movie was made from stills taken on walking tours of the Flute Reed Cave, Elephant Trunk Hill and Fubo Hill near Guilin, China.
The Flute Reed cave, so named from reeds growing nearby which were used in flute making, is a natural limestone cave which contains inscriptions from the Tang Dynasty, showing that it has been an attraction for over 1200 years. The cave has a variety of stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations which are displayed by coloured lighting.
The Elephant Trunk Hill, so named from looking like an elephant drinking water, is located at the confluence of the Taohua and Lijiang Rivers, and is situated beside a scenic park.
The Fubo Hill, located on the western bank of the Li River, is named after General Fubo of the Han Dynasty. At the base of the hill is the so-called Thousand-Buddha Cave, in which there are many Buddhist statues and more than 100 carved inscriptions of various periods. Most of the statues are works of the Tang and Song Dynasties. Half way up the hill is a cast iron bell dating from the Qing Dynasty. A steep climb by steps to the top of the hill is rewarded by spectacular views of the Li River and the surrounding mountains.
I made the 1080/60p movie using iMovie at 60fps on an iMac as described on my webpage at ianperegian.com.
