This cave is a marvellous and multivalent destination, by turns a peaceful area for repose and a vibrant space of self-exploration. Highly recommended for the supernatural, creatures of Darkness, owls, fungal pods, curious half-elves, human tourists, and bats who were born in the cave then left to explore & mate and are now looking to settle down. It is adequately... More

I really love this place. A lot of stalactites, wonderful shapes, underground river, easy paths. The only thing I don't like is colorful lights. I would prefer something more natural. Please check my photos to figure out how the place looks.

10 years in the making, and wow what an experience. There seem to be so many stories of local folks just stumbling across these finds throughout China, and this is apparently one of them. This enormous cave, developed by a private company, is a wonder to visit. Stalactites and stalagmites abound, the paths are all paved, decoratively lit, and even... More

We went to Yellow Dragon Cave on 10 September 2014 by tour group. There were so many stalagmites and stalactites. The lightings gave the best effects of the beauty of this cave. It was such a hard job for us elderly to climb up the steep stairs. Some had railings. My wife had a hard time to see this cave.... More

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...
