We're from the US and I've seen several caves in West Virginia and also around China in the Guilin area. My sentiment has been "you've seen one and you've seen them all." However I was pleasantly surprised to see this relatively new cave (only opened within the last 15 years), as it had a decent concrete walkway with handles, dramatic... More

A big cave installed with colorful lighting to highlight various formations of stalactites and stalagmites that resembling certain objects/ scenes. Be careful of the wet & slippery floor. Quite a stunning view! The restaurant opposite the car park was good.

These are large caves! The rock formations are very impressive, better than I have seen in new Zealand caves. Some people may dislike the fact that the caves are illuminated with coloured lights but to me its the formations that are the attraction and these certainly are world class. So if you can ignore the colours and appreciate the formations... More

The Siver caves in Yangshuo is an amazing place and a must see for all the sights and experience. This cave is under a mountain and during rains or just after the rains like in May one can see water seeping through the rocks and it builds the atmosphere and experience. One should keep at least two hours for this... More

The caves are beautiful ,and a little scary. Once you get inside, you take atleast half an hour to get out even if you don't stop on the way. The drawback was that all the guides were explaining the various sights in Chinese only...and since we didn't understand any, we were just left watching the caves on our own and... More

Ok it is just another cave. The gimmick for Chinese tourists"Been to Silver Cave, Be Rich All Your Life" really wins hearts! You need to climb up and down inside and it is impossible to cover it all with just an hour. There is a mud bath nearby.

This was a large cave with some interesting formations. It was pouring rain outside so this was a great activity to do to keep dry. But if you've been to other caves (for instance Mammoth Cave in Kentucky) then you will be dissapointed. Air quality inside was not great and it was hard to breath about half way through.

The cave is nicely done, with trails and stairs. The lighting brings life to the formations. It is cool when you enter but when you climb it starts to get humid and you'll be sweating by the time you get out. Just be ready and also have a nice camera to capture the formations.

We loved this cave....it was HUGE with so many different types of rock formations. They have added a lot of colored lighting which makes it all feel rather surreal when going through the cave. If you are in the area, definitely check it out. Great photo op!
