A very large cave that can take over an hour to walk through. Beautifully lit and the rock formations are labelled well in English and Chinese. A good activity for a rainy day in Yangshuo. Easily accessible by public bus service. Tour guides all seemed to operate in Mandarin but easy enough to stroll through by yourself.

We (family of 4) went through the silver cave just last week - and couldn't believe our luck as we were more or less on our own the whole time! That made this a GREAT experience, if you are less lucky though we have heard it gets VERY crowded and that must really totally ruin the walk. Of course you... More

This is a big well planned tourist attraction. The caves are 2km long and the lighting makes the most of the massive halls which look like a Gaudi Cathedral. Let your imagination run wild as you look for animals and shapes in the rock formations. There are a couple of commercial photo stops but they are very reasonably priced. Worth... More

Only if you have time to kill. I went there wearing sandals and it is just fine. They have concrete steps and walkway throughout the cave. The lights inside are annoying. I saw two rats on my walkway. Definitely not worth the trip if you have seen a cave before, or even have an idea what they look like. I... More

There was massive tour groups, too many flashing lights and not enough of the natural beauty but worth a visit for 60 yuan.

We have seen many caves, this one was stunning but best for someone who is a first-timer. We loved it, gorgeous formations, defiantly worth a visit if time is limited.

When I arrived I thought seen one big cave seen them all . Wrong this cave system is on a scale not seen certainly in UK or France etc. Vast caverns many times bigger than Cheddar Dordogne etc. of course lit very colourfully which I the end added to impact and the names were also poetic to a foreign ear....

It's definitely a good free exercise for me! The view was magnificents! But I guess the local authority should emphasize more regulations for the visitors. Please wear a proper walking shoes. The path is slippery and you have to go up and down all through the journey.

The biggest cave I've been to, it takes about an hour to stroll through. Easy for everyone and anyone with wide flat paths throughout and railings where there are stairs. I did it in flip flops, no need for hiking shoes. We went in the low season (apparently) and it was still busy with chinese tour groups, but we managed... More

We rented bikes for the day and followed an inaccurately scaled map to Silver Cave. It took us 2 hours with a none gear bike (bring plenty of water if the weather is still hot). The cave has a 65 yuan entrance fee which we found a bit expensive for this type of attraction but many of the things in... More
