The cave is very big and be careful if you don't want to be lost. I recommand but only if it's rainy outside.

Go early and bring a raincoat. There will be lots of splashing when you go on the boatride INSIDE the cave. If you've been to other caves, this might be not so awesome but if its your first time then you'll have lots of fun. They installed several lights on the rocks inside the cave to enhance your experience. I... More

This is definitely not a caving 'adventure' but it is an exceptional place. The scale of the cave system is almost overwhelming and there's a wonderful bridge arching over a chasm where you can free your inner Gandalf like nobody's business.

We were pleasantly surprised by these caves, they are absolutely huge and lit up in bright colours throughout. On arrival you are ushered in with a large group and a chinese speaking guide. At first you take a boat but after that you could easily just lag behind and wander at your own pace. Today it wasn't busy at all... More

Be prepared to walk - if your eye sight not great, bring a small torch. And use a good pair of walking shoes. Dont worry it is very clean inside the cave, no bats or at least i could not smell or see them. there is a boat ride at the end - nothing spectacular but interesting to see water... More

Takes a couple of hours to do. Nice and relaxed the day after going to the forest park. It's cold so bring another layer. Don't give more than 3-4 hours for the caves.

SO great! Glad I went there. i've arrived to ZJJ in the afternoon, it was too late to go to the mountains and this place was perfect. Huge cave, beautiful lighting and classical music performance at the largest hall of it. Despite being tired after the train ride, I am glad I went. Advise - if the weather is overcasting,... More

I have seen many caves in the US, Thailand and in Viet Nam. The Yellow Dragon Cave is the best I have ever seen and experienced. They have done a fantastic presentation and even the floors of this cave have been carefully paved in stone with sculptured stone railings adorned with led lighting. The interior height of the cave is... More

There are easily about 1800 steps to climb up and down if you want to view the stalactites and stalagmites in this cave. But it is worth every step of the way. The cave is not lighted all the way and it can be slippery.

Beautiful! This cave is huge! It has 6 floors. 100 RMB + 15 RMB for the labyrinth. The tour takes about 2-2.5 hr. You have to follow a guide, or else you might get lost, that is at least what our guide told us. Though take in mind the entire tour is in Chinese. Still, just go!
