The cave entrance is 74m and 64m wide, leading to 59.8km of passageways. An underground network of streams runs for 16.8km whilst the cave is the source of the Qingjiang River.

  • Focus today is not about tenglongdong natural scenery, then leave the length of the key. Actually, readers should be able to guess. Tourism, in addition to the natural scenery, another part of the humanities. Yes, let me linger tenglongdong is humane, but the Humanities non-books for a long time. But scenic carefully crafted 2 performances. Good exaggeration to say, tenglongdong both performance survey said the international fan! First is the laser show. It is reported that the area is currently the only investment of 40 million to create the integrated laser show, using the most advanced technology at home and abroad, accompanied by choreographed modern dance combines laser, ball curtain, water curtain, fountains, fire, fog, moving light, sound and other elements. New high-tech means integration, the perfect fusion of virtual and real, presents a magnificent pieces shocking for you unforgettable pictures. This story is based on a myth and legend. Ultimate performance is beyond the limits of love stories. Although our understanding of the origin of this story be, but emotions can feel. And here the light changes, spray of water, this story come alive. This laser show is not unusual in many places this light show, too, but in this cave, belly, there is such a large show, had to admire. First is the development difficult, followed by engineering complex here, where so much in the cave a few miles you put on such a show, the area is full of good intentions! Second is a show reflecting the Tujia folk, called "Yi Shui Lichuan." Scenic within has spent 30 million after three times revision build of national maximum of original ecological cave Theatre, by domestic top Director carefully choreography of to soil home culture for background of large stories dance Yi Shui Lichuan, distribution to digital computer lamp, and fog Sen, and lifting stage, and mobile stilts, and covered bridge, and water in the Dragon,, let you in feel make cave shock of beauty of when, also can understanding to original and and old of local dance style and and of fun.
