A superb network of caves for all levels.

I’ve been to a LOT of caves in my day, and these ranked among the best. First, I was with my wife, so there was no climbing or dangerous stuff.
There were hardly any other people, which is always nice.
There really were 2 caves near to each other. The other called “Underground Crack” was more amazing than the first one called Shuanghe Cave. Huge chambers, Curtains, stalactites and stalagmites along with most other cool things found in a cave.
There are caving lessons that one can take which explore other areas as well.

If you are already in this part of China for the scenery, then you’ve got to visit these caves. The entry fees were 210 rmb per person which included both caves. Not cheap, but we’ll worth it after all as you’ll get your money’s worth. It takes a couple of hours to walk though each if you take your time.

A hidden kingdom of landscapes

“Shuanghe Cave in Guizhou province-which was named the longest cave in Asia on Saturday......Jean Bottazzi, a well-known French caver who had lived in China for several years to explore the country's underground kingdom, found a new tunnel in Shuanghe Cave connecting with Duiwo Cave, where the new lizardlike species was found.” ——by China Daily
At the beginning of 2019, me and my friend went to visit Shuanghe cave and experience the charm of it. The cave is located in a scenic area called Shi’er Beihou (It doesn't seem to mean anything in English as “at the back of twelve”) which is a bit interesting. As the staff explained, it comes from its Chinese name “十二背后”. In Chinese, “十二”means twelve, but if we put the Chinese character “十” (ten) and 二”(tow) together as one character, it will become another character “王”(King). So,the name of scenic area means “at the back of the king”. I guess maybe the owner of Shi’er Beihou wants to make the guests feel like a king when they visit it.
There are 4 ways to get there: by air, by high speed train, by car or by bus. First way, by air, there are 2 airport in Zunyi: Xinzhou Airport and Maotai Aitport.Second way, by high speed train to Zunyi station (we choose this way) and take a Didi or taxi (cost is about 280 yuan for each way) to the scenic area. Third way, by car, if you are not far away from Zunyi, you can choose this way. It takes you about 3-4 hours from Chongqing via the Nandao expressway and 4-5 hours from Guiyang via Guizun expressway. If you choose bus, then you can take a bus from Guiyang Jinyang bus station to Zunyi bus station (ticket price is 88 Yuan for each way) and then transfer to bus provided by scenic area to your destination (20 yuan for each way).

The most attractive part of Shi’er Beihou was the cave expedition. The famous caver Jean Bottazzi and his team explored the cave and created some excursions for ordinary travelers, so that we have chance to experience how this amazing cave is.

We visited Yinhe cave. The scenic area provides all the professional equipment to guests as well as snacks and a bottle of water. So, there is no need to bring anything except a phone or camera if you want to take pictures and videos. Be cautious of protecting your camera from hitting the rock walls when you do abseiling and climbing. Another attention is the suit they provided is a conjoined garment. And definitely there is no bathroom in the cave, so it’s better not to drink too much water.

Before the expedition begins, two professional coaches give you a one on one basic training. They showed us how to move in narrow places and abseil down to the bottom of the cave. Then we tried by ourselves. When the coaches made sure we got all the skills needed, we begun.We spent 3 hours in the cave and 10km trekking.

The most exciting part was the suspended rope drop from 20 meters high. But depending on safety provided by two professional coach and reliable equipment, I really enjoyed it.
