Yellow Dragon Cave (Huanglong Cave)

Admission:

RMB 80

Hours:

How to get there:

Take a minibus towards Suoxi Valley (Suǒxī Yù, 索溪峪) and then take a motorbike to the cave for about RMB 2/person.

The entire length of the Yellow Dragon Cave (Huánglóng Dòng, 黄龙洞) is about 12 km (7.5 mi) and it has four distinct levels. The cave's massive size houses both dry caves and watery caves, including two "palaces," eight "halls" and 96 "corridors."

It's sure to satisfy any avid spelunker, plus the colors from the rock formations are truly a sight to see. Stalactites and stalagmites fill the whole cave, and, if you can bring yourself to do it, when you whack a stalactite hard enough it will resonate at a certain pitch. In addition to the main cave, an 11 km (7 mi) long cave and a 50 m (164 ft) high waterfall should also be explored.

Visitors should make sure to wear durable shoes since the trek can be slippery. A boat ride is also provided to visitors to assist with seeing the full glory of the cave.
