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.

This was an amazing cave experience we spend about 4 hours inside the cave.The boat ride in the cave was really cool and there are so many halls to explore that you never get bored. 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

Well, the first stop was on a rainy day. You need to be indoors. The Huanglong Dong (Yellow Dragon cave; 黄龙洞) allowed just that. At 103RMB (3RMB is for insurance) and 15RMB to see the stalagmite-stalactite labrynth was marvellous value. This included a short boat ride and more than two hours of strolling. After entering via the Huanglong Cave Ecology... More

I have been to a number of limestone caves but this site is by far the most spectacular. Be prepared to climb a long way, approximately 500 steps up and then 500 back down again. The experience starts with a boat ride on a massive underground lake with stalactites and stalagmites lit up everywhere. The climb then starts as there... More

Definitely bring your own interpreter. And look for the foreigners way in. Came during slow season so did not find it too crowded or noisy. I Liked the boat ride, all the walking and all the stairs! But did not go thorough the crystal labyrinth. This is the one limestone cave I have visited in China so I have limited... More

Cave tours definitely start to seem similar after a couple but the sheer size of the cave is well worth visiting Unfortunately what would be spectacular on its own coloured lights have been placed throughout for added impact Nothing needed to be added and if you ignore the tourist trappings it will still amaze as an incredible natural site

I got there from Zhangjiajie Park. I had to take a bus to Suoxiyu Entrance. From there I had to change to another bus which should go all the way to the Yellow Dragon Cave but stops half way through and people have to go to another (same number) bus which goes further. I was asking people in the bus... More

This is a must come for a traveler to Zhangjiajie. It is a natural park caves which is coloured lighted. A must for photographers, packed with tripod and timed controlled shutter, you can take beautiful pictures.

It seems like there are reviews for various caves in this listing, so just to be clear; my review is for the very popular Huanglong Cave (aka Yellow Dragon Cave) about 15 minutes east of Wulingyuan town. To get there, I took the number 1 bus (modern green bus with a prominent #1 displayed on an electronic reader board at... More
