It is the largest and longest caves we had ever seen. The experience inside with the colorful lighting is awesome. The boat ride inside the caves is fun. The rock formations inside are interesting.

This cave truly is a sight to behold. We were so amazed to be able to ride a boat on the river inside of the cave. There was much climbing and stairs so be prepared and wear your good walking shoes. They added a lot of colored lights in the cave so it did seem kind of fake, but cool... More

This was a lot of fun and if you're in the area I think it's worth a visit. A part of me would have prefered a cave with less colorful lighting all over the place, but it was a pretty unique experience and parts of the cave were beyond gorgeous. The area around the caves is also pretty nice to... More

I had a guide for this trip it was part of a package for the Zhangjiajie area. You go into a small passage way after about 40 feet you are in an open area cave. I did not feel closed in during this tour. There is a lake and a river in the cave system and an electric boat that... More

A guide or at least someone with Chinese speaking abilities should accompany foreigners to get to this place with ease. Ticket was 100 (adult) Once in the cave you are treated with vies of millions of years of geological rock formations displayed with colorful lights. There's even a boat ride that takes you deeper into a different section of the... More

Interesting sites and nicely staged lights to accentuate the stalagmites and stalactites. 4 levels in the cave. Lots of steps but worth it. Tempeture is contanst summer or winter. My kids ages 6 & 7 enjoyed this area.

We did not follow the tour guides as the are loud and in a rush.We just followed the route on our own time and let... More

Yellow Dragon Cave is a well worth a half-day trip. The cave itself features some very impressive halls as well as a great number of stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones, draperies, straws and columns. The park in which the cave is located is also very nice and offering good views of the surrounding hills. It was mentioned by other reviewers that the... More
