Different views of Shibaozhai. A very impressive sight whichever way you look at it. The entrance to it would have been underwater once they filled the reservoir for the three gorges dam, but they built a coffer dam to protect it.
No matter how I try, I can’t seem to be systematic about publishing photos. These are from my May trip to Guilin, in China, during their rainy season. The last full day we were there we wandered around the lakes in the middle of town in the rain. We were wet through and through, but we didn’t want to waste any time in that lovely city.
Some other posts from that trip are: Rainy Season on the Li River, Which Way to the Karst?, Sun and Moon Illuminated and Illuminating, A Few Rainy Days in Guilin China-Day 1, A Few Rainy Days in Guilin China-Day 2, Misty Vistas.
The paired Sun and Moon Pagodas in Guilin from a couple of different angles. They are lit, and that lights up the surrounding area.
