Impressive caves

The cave system is very impressive. The tours in Chinese can be a bit trying if you don't speak Chinese, but it's easy to blank them out.

We visited the yellow dragon cave "Huang Long Tong" on a sunny weekday which could be one reason that it was not crowded. It was also lunch time when we started our independent visit. This cave is huge, most of the stairs and corridors are well lit and the coloured lights on the stalagmites makes for good viewing and nice... More

I was amazed at just how much of an area this cave covered! It is pretty amazing. I would recommend a visit, but it isnt for those that dont like steps! There is quite a few of them. It does also get wxtremely busy with tour groups and the traditional guides with mega noisy microphones! But if you can blank... More

This place is easy to get (you can take a bus) and really worth visiting. You can walk in a natural cave which is 2000 square meters! There are so many paths, halls, galleries and even the 3km river where you can have a little boat trip. We walked there for more than 2 hours but never took the same... More

Yellow Dragon Cave is a really cool place that you should see while in Wulingyuan. It costs only 30 yuan for a taxi from the town center and is very easy to navigate for non-Chinese speakers. You enter the cave with a group, following the Chinese speaking guide along the one way trail through the caverns. Although I don't speak... More

I enjoyed the walk around Yellow Dragon Cave. It's absolutely huge in there with some really great formations. I agree that the tour guides and groups were a bit annoying but it is Zhangjiajie in the middle of July...the boat trip was short but still really cool. I recommended this for a few hours.

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
