These caves were stunning with the highlight being the central chamber which was beautifully lit and tourists were treated to a light show with classical music which was lovely.

It is a beautiful place, there are great caves and natural formations, but it is something that you can see anywhere else. I would not waste valuable time being so far in China!

Lights make this place even more beautiful than it is. Be careful if you decide to visit it by yourself there is only chinese-speaking guides. It is really easy to access with the bus line number 3 which costs 1RMB. It definitely woth to be visited

Make sure to take some pictures of the reflection of everything in the water as its stunning. Lastly, if you don't speak english hang back and go at your own pace as the guides... More

We have been in other caves, but this one is unique because of the incredible use of colored lights throughout and even a cavern where they show a film on the ceiling, and another film on a water screen overlooking a small underground pond.
