Loved the cave. It's big and beautiful. The lighting really adds to the experience. Only takes an hour or two to go through the entire thing. Worth a stop!

The caves themselves were impressive, but the fluro lights they put up were badly hid (saw bulbs and wires). There are tour groups, but only in Chinese so we just had to follow one around with no one speaking English or being helpful at all. The different caves light up on timers so once the group has moved on and... More

The various caves are very impressive even just for the natural features, let alone the colourful lighting which adds to the spectacle. Worth a visit although a bit expensive at ¥120.

This was part of a multi-day guided tour we took and we weren't sure what to expect - but it was stunning. It was grand - this is a place that heads of state are taken when they visit the region, and now we know why. FYI - You enter the cave by climbing many stairs up to the main... More

We have visited many caves in the past, but this one takes the cake .... of color! I prefer caves that are left in their natural state with minimal intrusion, but then why not. :-) The photos turned out great which is usually not the case in other caves. I also prefer it when guides tell you the names of... More

This massive cave has lots of interesting limestone formations - the usual stalactites and stalagmites - but is overdone for my liking. Overdoing things seems to be a common theme in China. Colored lights and laser shows don't do anything to enhance the natural beauty of the cave but I guess it makes for cute photos to attract tourists. It... More

We went to this cave with our guide from China Odyssey Tours. It was really fun and a nice break from the heat.
