Nothing really special other than the colourful lightings to attract tourists. Limestone caves are all so similar around the world. The admission ticket includes a boat ride inside the cave. A tour guide will lead the tourists around but only speaks the Chinese language. If you have like 2-3 hours to spare after the National Forrest park, then you may... More

We went by bus (bus N1) it cots only 2 RMB per person. It took 15min to get there. Entrance was 100RMB/person. Nice and intresting cave to visit. A lot... More

One of the best-organised tourist attraction that I have been in the whole world. Travellers will be able to enjoy an air-conditioned guided tour in the cave and be amazed by the lightings (man-made) of the cave!

This cave was huge and it took us over two hours to walk through. There are a bunch of different sections to the cave and we explored through a boat ride. We were surprised that we didn't have to wait in line for the boat ride. Thanks to our tour guide from Okichina Service. There are SO MANY steps.

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.
