Before you enter the cave, you pass through a lovely water mill. In the cave there is a lot of walking up and down stairs and a boat ride on the underground Bruinen River. The Dragon Palace is the biggest of the main cave halls. There are many peaks known as the Pagoda Peak. The Yellow Dragon Cave is massive... More

This is a beautiful relaxing park .We took a short walk from the parking area through stands of bamboo and came upon a pond with a dragon's head molded on a cliff. Spring water comes out of the dragonhead and flows into a bluish green pond below. It is quite beautiful and as we gazed into the water we half... More

The cave was neat, much bigger than I expected (and a lot more stairs !) it was fun though and worth the 80 yuan. I coupled this in with the glass bridge (not at the same place, but on the way by car) and made a day out of it... I wouldn't have gone out of my way just for... More

Cave is huge, but many of the surroundings are very artificial looking, more so with the "not so well positions" colorful lights. A short boat ride, cool but its sardine pack seat.

The cave is not so gorgeous, but the boat trip is nice, and also many water mills on the way to the cave are very picturesque

It is a huge limestone cave that takes you at least two hours to visit (including a short boat ride). It is decorated with colourful lighting throughout. You should only visit the cave if you are fit, because you'll have many, many stairs to climb up and down. And don't dress too warm as the temperature in the cave is... More

Fun cave to walk through but TONS of stairs covering four floors. The riverboat cruise is fun too...and you can see the dragon's head!

A huge and interesting limestone cave, come along with a boat ride. Nicely decorated with colourful lighting that make it more interesting while walking around the cave. Involves a lot of walking, up and down thousand of steps.

You will need at least 2 hrs to navigate inside the cave. I went there on the 12 October, and the crowd was manageable. If you have weak knees, you cannot keep up with the group and will be left behind on your own. There are numerous steps up and it can be quite tiring for the elderly. The cave... More
