We took the bus to Yaoling from the bus station in Tonglu. It was wonderful to step into a cool cave when the outside was still hot and muggy. Each step into the cave made me ooh and aah even more.

The caves were very interesting, but we were so distracted by the brightly colored lights that made us think we were in Disneyland instead of a natural cave. Plain lighting would be calmer and better.

The lighting in the cave is distracting, but the natural beauty is worth the trip. Wear sensible shoes as there are many steps and they can be damp/slippery

The Yaoling Cave complex is well worth the 40 minute drive from Tonglu. The caves are extensive and the rock formations are beautiful; the addition of interesting lighting effects enhances their appeal. The pathways and steps which take you on a 45 minute walk through the caves are well laid out and safe.

We were lucky enough to get an English speaking guide and this made the tour more interesting. she was able to tell us about some of the artifacts that were found from early inhabitants. The caves were... More

I visited the caves with colleagues from the hospital I work at in Hangzhou. We had a great day of exploring. The lighting is extraordinary and the carved rock amazing! It is important to wear the proper pair of shoes... I was the only one, in my group of 50, that had on hiking shoes. I would definitely say at... More
