Yellow Dragon Cave, Zhangjiajie

3.8
Monstrous in size and allegedly home to a dragon, Yellow Dragon Cave spreads across an area of some 48 hectares (120 acres). This humongous cave system extends some 15 km (9.3 mi) and usually takes two hours to explore, as you traverse some 1,800 steps. Admire LED-lit stalagmites and stalactites grown over millions of years, and marvel at a 50 m (160 ft) high waterfall that seems to come out of nowhere. With an underground lake and its 4,000 sq m (43,000 sq ft) chamber, the tour includes an otherworldly underground river boat ride. Due to the size and lack of facilities in the caves, be sure to use the restroom beforehand. Make Yellow Dragon Cave part of your personalized Zhangjiajie itinerary using our Zhangjiajie trip maker .

  • The cave by boat round trip tour. However, large cave just wide, No Cave of beauty. Tour is a waste of time. Much of ryusendo rimstone is beautiful.

  • Experience only. We get about 4 hours of the cave. Rustic stairs up and down; We ship inside the cave to cross to another location.

  • 16 billion was enough insurance had lots of sights from a stalagmite. Just have to climb the stairs in the gods as hard rubbish.
