The cave was really cool! It was very massive, it just keeps going. The cave was very well maintained. Not a single stray piece of garbage. The cave is very colorful and there is also a body of water through the deeper parts of the cave. You can take a boat ride, for free, through that section of the cave.... More

August in China is hot. The Yellow Dragon Cave is cool, both temperature and site wise. We enjoyed it, but it's nothing special if you've been to caves with stalagmites and stalactites. However, this was a pleasant break from a few days hiking through the forest. It wasn't as busy and the boat ride was relaxing. There are some amazing... More

This was a great experience so little did me know that if it is hot outside inside the cave it's cold and if it is cold out its hit inside. So we got lucky to walk through it when it was cold which I strongly recommend everything as different beautiful color lights and also a beautiful boat ride through the... More

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
