  • It s is a nice cellar natural as we can visit a few places in China. With magnificent natural training. Unfortunately as usual l local authorities have set up a little too well to make accessible even in stiletto heel. ... wait you at a festival of color to be led. Road of 4 km was reduced to 1 km and return to dragon boating is mandatory. However it's worth if you're to jianshui. The price is 80 yuan. The departure from jianshui is at the bus station. the price of the bus is 12 yuan.

  • This freak of nature and ornitholody is halfway between Jianshui and Gejiu. The karst formations are lure, but what you will want to see are tens of thousands of swallows flying around in spring and s...  more »
  • 燕子洞,号称东南亚最大的溶洞,一月去没有燕子。 距离建水县城有个几十公里路程,有高速。离朱家花园过去差不多半个小时。 去元阳要从此路过,可以顺路游览这里。

  • An interesting place to visit with access by boat or by foot. There are stalactite and stalagmite formations throughout the caves which are beautifully lit up. Some resemble animals and are named as such. Sometimes referred to as Swift caves as well as Swallow caves, the place was once the place where nests were harvested for bird's nest soup. At the entrance to the caves are the names of the intrepid climbers who once had to scale the high cliffs to collect the nests. Nowadays, while the birds still nest in the caves, collecting the nests, hanging signs and climbing is very much put on for the tourists. Each August 8th, 9th and 10th the “Bird Nest Festival” is held. Some local people will climb up the precipitous cliffs to fetch nests. During the three days, many people gather here to attend the risky but exciting event. Worth a visit if you're in the area.
  • Worth visiting, god's creature. However, it is not easy to get there by public transportation. Self-driving is highly recommended.
