Guilin Butterfly Spring, Yangshuo County

Meet the masses of fluttering, colorful creatures at Guilin Butterfly Spring, a wildlife observation center featuring a grotto, specimen exhibit, and butterfly garden. A grotto with several interesting rock formations stands as the reason the facility opened here, because several of the formations bear a striking resemblance to butterflies. Take a walk through the cave to see the natural spring, and head to the butterfly garden to see the creatures flying freely among the bushes, trees, and flowers. The exhibition center features thousands of specimens from over 300 butterfly species.
