This is a really large cave and there is a lot of walking to go through the cave. The boat ride is beautiful. There are lots of beautiful cave formations to see. The gardens are also lovely.

This was our first day out in Zhangjiajie. We were a little worried because everything I read highly recommended a guide for pretty much everything sight and we really didn’t plan anything out ahead of time so unfortunately all the English speaking guides aren’t available...More

This is the largest cave system I have visited & typically Chinese was made very accessible by extensive use of concrete paving & about 900 steps & stairs. As I had an English speaking guide this made it easy for me to get around the...More

Very extensive. This cave is very entertaining to walk through. Multi coloured lights will highlight interesting features. The walkways are well constructed and are safe to walk. Be prepared to climb stairs as there are plenty. The boat ride along the river is fun too....More

Unbelievable giant cave. Colored lights, why? Probably fun with children; we didn't hike around, went for the boat ride on the river inside which is fun, but probably not worth it just for the trip. It was included in our tour of Wulingyuan scenic area...More

My husband and I visited the caves based on trip advisor reviews. If you've never seen a cave before it's cool otherwise a total waste of time. Too many people and odd colored Disney like colors. It had endless stairs and also was slippery. There...More

This cave has some very high ceiling area that makes the place feels really huge. It also has rivers that flows inside that allow small boat ride inside. Do note that there are many steps so best if you dress comfortably.

I was quite amazed by the result of their creativity, from the usual cave, they added various colorful lights. In this place, you gonna use your own imagination.

You will need a full day at Tianmen mountain. Plus, it’s atomistic an hour from the cave so doing both in the same day isn’t a good idea. But the cave probably opens around 8:30 and closes around maybe 7pm.

Not very good. It's dark inside and the walkway is up and down with some steps. The ground was wet around the boat dock area and it was slippery.
