Great cave system for touring through ...... full of stalagmites and stalactites, with underground lake ride also.

When entering the cave they'll open the gates for batches of 60 at a time. I'd suggest hanging back for about 5 minutes and let the hoards rampage through first along with the guide squawking through the megaphone. Then take a leisurely stroll behind them, at least until you meet other hoards coming and going. Whilst all taking it in... More

There is nothing to dislike, it is the biggest of over 100 caves in this area but the only one open to the public. The walk ways are well maintained, but prepare yourself for the over 300 stairs leading up and down within this cave labyrinth, which one hardly ever notice while walking along and resting the eyes on this...

You can purchase a ticket for the cave at the cashier after the bridge, it takes some time and it's over priced. The ticket for the labyrinth can be purchased inside for 15 kuai extra but is just a wast of money. One good thing about the Huanglong cave was the "foreigners way in". Me and my partner saw the...

It's pretty huge, but too many steps up and down, without a lot of formations to see. Better caves elsewhere in China. Not worth the ticket price over 100 yuan.

One would definitely need a guide because one can get lost in this huge cave. And one needs to tread carefully because the cave is wet. Walking inside is not for the faint hearted. There are many steps going upwards which we did not attempt because we were scared of slipping on the way down. And we only went half... More

The cave is huge and has some beautiful formations in it. The lighting is a bit much, but makes for some great photos. If possible, try and stick with a small group without an amplified tour guide and it will be that much more peaceful. It was also a great workout. It's out of the way, but I found the... More

Fantastic caves with two river running through. Be ready to walk a lot and climb a LOT of stairs. The formations are great, the lighting is a bit much.

Had a very pleasant experience visiting the cave. You'll definitely want to wonder the cave on your own and stay away from the organized group walking tour... those walking tours are usually fast-paced and will not allow you to have sufficient time to admire the cave. Plus, they are usually loud. Wear a comfortable pair of sneakers with good grip... More
