Step into Akiyoshido, a large cavern housing a number of interesting rock formations and a mysterious, otherworldly atmosphere. A prominent feature of the local karst landscape, the limestone cave has an entrance 24 m (78 ft) in height and 8 m (26 ft) in width, though the cave reaches 100 m (328 ft) in width and 80 m (262 ft) in height inside. Punctuated with a number of naturally carved works of art, the cave has become known for its terraced limestone pools, underground waterfalls, and streams.

  • It was completely the Bell Cave Cave taught in the teaching book, but the space inside the cave was very, very large, so large that if it had not been dark, it would have been completely forgotten that it was a cave! The cave was about a kilometer long, walking on the pedestrian passageway, which was so happy to build, in the middle of the walk is very relaxed, every other distance there is a language to tell the scene of that place, the language also has a Chinese choice, looking at the various kinds of quality in the cave, can be completely with the previous teaching books to connect with the things. The ideal method of viewing is to enter from one end, walk through the whole, and then out of another exit, but the question is how to go after the transport of the vehicle to continue, for their own car can probably not choose this method, can only go to the end and then go back to the entrance, one after another to walk more than two kilometers away!

  • I visited in early February. The inside of the cave was warm enough to go to the back, and it was hot when I wore a coat. It was so big and so impressive that I could not compare it to the cave I had visited. The explanation by the voice that is installed was very naturalness.
