A large group of us toured on a rainy day. You start the tour with a short film which is very helpful. Make sure you wear comfortable non-slick shoes. There are several steps. Some areas require quite a bit of energy to climb. The Grottoes are beautiful. We actually sang in the bottom of one. Each one is large so... More

My wife's friend is from this area, and we had to go to her wedding. So along the way, I found out about this place. It was super easy to find, and really cheap. I think it was less than 100 rmb. The best part was that we went during the week, so we were one of four people inside!... More

Even after reading reviews, I was still really unsure what to expect from here. So when we stepped into the first cavern we entered (#7, I believe?) I was happily surprised to feel a sense of awe. It is a little annoying how they've added some modern artwork to the walls, but in my opinion that doesn't take away just... More

This is Indiana Jones stuff. Spectacular mysterious ancient caverns. Most are still full of water and neglected. The most bizarre thing however is the level of destruction that is going on to the ones that are open to the public. Concrete is being poured over them, lights and speakers are installed, large fish ponds are being built inside the grottoes,... More

This place was great I liked the caves and all the work that went into restoring them and making them viewable to the public,but they have done the usual chinese by adding in tacky coloured lights to parts of the cave and music as you walk around outside. Getting here was also a pain seeing as i couldn't manage to... More

These grottoes were only discovered, or should that be re-discovered, in 1992. People had previously presumed they were just old fish ponds, but when they were drained, people learned that they were actually ancient grottoes that had been hewn from solid rock before the Qin Dynasty, some two thousand five hundred years ago. The construction methods, the lighting methods and... More
