The limestone Reed Flute Cave has been attracting visitors for 1,200 years and inscriptions on the walls date back to the Tang Dynasty in 792AD
These stunning pictures reveal what could be the world’s most colourful cave buried 790-feet beneath the Earth’s surface.
American photographer Scott Graham, 53, who stumbled upon the 180 million-year-old Reed Flute Cave in Guilin Province, China, captured cold blues, fiery reds and bright greens in a jaw-dropping rainbow of colours.
Scott said: “A local guide told me not miss the Reed Flute Cave,” he said.
“He was right, it was spectacular.
“The cave has high ceilings and stalactites and stalagmites that are millions of years old.
“The Chinese did a nice job of lighting the cave with different colours that turn the place into a mecca for the eyes.
“The underground lake is incredibly calm and clear creating mirror like images.
“I have been in a number of caves, and this one was the most spectacular I have seen.
The limestone Reed Flute Cave has been attracting visitors for 1,200 years and inscriptions on the walls date back to the Tang Dynasty in 792 AD.
The caves were named after a type of reed found growing near the entrance.
Revealing how he took the incredible images, Scott said: “Tripods were not officially allowed in the cave, so I had to sneak mine in.
“Then I would set up my shot between groups of people going through the cave to avoid getting people in my shots.
