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

My initial plan was to spend 1 full day in ZhangJiaJie Glass Bridge and Grand Canyon. Unfortunately, when I was there in end Sep, only the glass bridge was open while the grand canyon was closed. With more than half a day to spare, I decided to visit this cave on my way back from the glass bridge. After paying... More

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
