Sofitel hotel arranged the private tour with a sedan that took us to both Stone Forest and this cave. What an experience it was for both of us. We also hired a tour guide inside the park, which only costed us $120 RMB. The geographical...More
How to get there on public transport: We took a bus from East Coach Station to Yiliang County (25 RMB) which took us about 1 hour. Then took another bus (no 21) to Juixiang Scenic Area. This also takes about an hour and it goes...More
This site located around an hour outside of Kunming.
Honestly jaw dropping beautiful. Yes there are a lot of people but it is not super crowded like many other attractions around China.
It is essentially a huge cave that’s thousands of year old. Inside are...More
Before entering the cave, we took a short boat ride along the narrow valley. We have to put on the life jacket & the protective helmet. As the day was hot, having a boat ride is very refreshing.
Next we procced to the Terrifying Gorge....More
The waterfalls and light displays were very nice. Walking along a narrow path through the caves was a good experience. The cable car at the end to take you to the beginning was quite spectacular, dangling 20m up looking at the forests below. Path is...More
This journey is full of surprise! Is like travelling down the Chinese movie time tunnel and enter into a long beautiful caves before flying out to the real world.
Seriously recommend everyone to take a trip to this place if you have came near Kunming....More
We didnt expect much but pleasantly surprised by size of the caves, amount of LED lights to illuminate, and the magnitude of water fall. We entered cave about 3pm and spent 2.5hrs walking along 1 direction path. Lots of steps so wear walking shoes. We...More
We have been to other caves but nothing beat this Jiuxiang Cave. This cave is really HUGE. It is like waking into another world and exiting through another dimension.
It is a long one way up the cave passing through gorge and bridge. Along the...More

In late September the weather should be good. The park will open at that time for sure. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes. There are two caves, one leading to another. Both of them are unique and beautiful. There are lots of steps down to explore the second cave, and 336 steps to climb back up. But don’t worry. There are “Chair carriages” available and cost 60 RMB. Beware of some porters. Half way up, I heard they ask for more money, and the lady ended up giving them 100 RMB. Even 100 RMB is still reasonable.

A must-visit for any visitor to Kunming. First cave I have been to with a waterfall and travertine pools inside! This spot should be as famous as the Stone Forest but alas it's only well known amongst the locals.
Stone Forest and Jiuxiang (9 Replies)
I would like to visit the Stone Forest, Dadieshui Waterfall, and Jiuxiang Scenic Region. I understand it cannot be done in one day, but I'm not sure where to stay the night. Buses run from Kunming to Stone Forest, has anyone had experience with them? I'm not keen on sitting on a smoke filled bus for two hours. Is it possible to visit the Stone Forest and then get a bus to Jiuxiang, stay the night there and visit the caves in the morning? Then head to Dadieshui, back to Stone Forest and...More

Some people do hire a car and driver and visit these three spots as a day trip from Kunming by getting an early start and returning the same evening. That would be the easiest way. On the other hand, this trip is also not difficult by public bus if funds are tight. It leaves from the East Station (昆明东部客运站。）Trip takes a little over an hour. I don't remember the exact ticket cost, but it wasn't over 50 Yuan. You can spend the night in a small guest house near Jiuxiang (in Yiliang) and...More
