This is a must-see attraction for those who love rock formations. The cave is huge with numerous stalagmites rising from the floor. This attraction may require walking around the cave with slippery floor and many stairs. The ticket includes a boat ride inside the cave and a local tour guide, but they only spoke in Chinese. Inside the cave, there... More

Tours in the cave were not well run. To many people and it was hard to make sure you were in the same group. You will be going down or up and another group is going the opposite way. I could have done with out the 'red' and 'blue' lights in the cave sort of fake. We have visited many... More

Huge Caves! A must for all underground scenary lovers. Dont get lost and dont miss the boat ride to the second half of the cave. The last 500 hundred meters are really cool. Do not go early! You will be overrun by thousands of screaming tourists with hundreds of shouting guides. The best to avoid the crowed is to visit... More

This cave is massive! It has a total length of over 15kms including internal rivers and lakes. we did a private guided tour through the cave which took about three hours and includes a boat ride down one of the underground rivers for 2.8kms. We walked approximately 4kms more, which included a LOT of steps, both up and down. This... More

I could not imagine the yellow dragon cave that inside of the mountain are more impossible things to see, like the river the formation of the stones and so tiring to walk it so big inside the mountain.

This cave is insanely huge - once you've made the choice to enter, be prepared for a helluva lot of walking - there is no shortcut to the exit, in case you wish to give up. Lots and lots of steps to navigate too. But if you don't have any fitness issues, or infants in tow, you'll be amazed by... More

The cave system was amazing. The caverns were so large. The amount of walking was little. The cave was great and there was really nothing negative to mention. The lighting fit well with the surroundings. Make sure you keep track of where your group is as it is really easy to get lost.

Can only add a couple of things to what's already been said: based on the negative reviews about excessive artificial lighting - we had our doubts. However, the rainy weather left us no choice but to wait it out in the cave. Boy are we glad it did! I would advise to ignore the negativity - the cave has been... More

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
