Worthwhile to go and combine it with some other scenic areas. Dragon Castle and Tianchi Lake, the Underground River Karst Cave is 15 km long and is the longest water Karst cave in China; Dragon Gate Flying Waterfall - is the biggest waterfall inside a Karst cave in China and is the headstream of Huangguoshu. AAAAA

This is am amazing attraction, from start to finish. I enjoyed the walk to the cave which borders a small river and ends in front of a very high waterfall. The entrance lake to access the caves is ... at the top!! (there is a lift). The ride is a real thrill. Loved it.

Beautiful boat ride inside the cave, no walking like other caves. Very well lighted, it was cool in the area even in July, highly recommended.

I wish I could have stayed here longer! Get an early start! This is the most amazing place ever. Not only is the cave home to a magnificent waterfall, the grounds around the cave are to die for as well. Overgrown stairways, low hanging greenery. It is truly something out of a fairy tale. AND to make it all better,... More

I visited this place 20 years ago and found it completely different today. Water becomes dirtier and people less kind. First of all, they made the place for making money but not a pleasant visit. The entry ticket is expensive in Chinese standard but after that you need to pay for each step you are taking - for taking a... More

A very nice day trip. We went by regular bus from Anshun which left us right at one of the main entrances. We did not need to pay any transport between sites as was mentioned by other reviews as everything was within walking distance. We also did not take the elevator, as it was an easy descant. Getting an student... More

As other reviews have said, you pay part by part to go to this cave,which is about thirty kilometers from the nearest city. The ticket price is already exorbitant, then comes the elevator ticket, and the ticket for tiger cave. Total is about 250 yuan, which is more than the ticket price for two day admission for nearby Huangguoshu, which... More

We went from Anshun with a minibus and were dropped off by what we thought was the big entrence. It was in fact one of them. The entrence fee is 150 Y and then you have to pay extra for transport between the sites and for some other sites that wasn't included. So, if you don't speak chinese or have... More

First enjoy the beautiful panorama from the mountain with the Chinese character draw within the rice field below. Impressive scenery very similar to Yangshuo. Then visit the cave with the waterfall inside, absolutely great. At least in this part of the year there was a lot of water and the strength of the current was amazing. Finally take the elevator...
