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

This attraction had a very artificial feel to it. Even the workers in the fields outside appeared to be acting the part of farmers. The caves were large but the paths were very dangerously slippy- watch your step.

Lots and lots of stairs inside the caves - it will take you a couple of hours to go around. These are not the best caves I have been in within China but they are good. Well worth the trip from Zhangjiajie.
