Yaoling Cave, Tonglu County

(75 reviews on the web)
Cave
Illuminated by colored lights, Yaoling Cave takes on an alien aspect, its bizarre rock formations cast in psychedelic pink and blue hues. Formed around 350,000 years ago, these nine subtropical karst caves link to create a 1 km (0.6 mi) underground walking trail. Though the paths have anti-slip mats and hand rails, the surfaces remain a little slick; wear hiking boots if possible. Bring along an extra layer to ward off chills, and note that visitors with mobility issues will be affected by the unfortunate lack of stairs. See Yaoling Cave and all Tonglu County has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tonglu County vacation route planner.

  • The caves were very interesting, but we were so distracted by the brightly colored lights that made us think we were in Disneyland instead of a natural cave. Plain lighting would be calmer and better.  more »
  • The lighting in the cave is distracting, but the natural beauty is worth the trip. Wear sensible shoes as there are many steps and they can be damp/slippery  more »
