Introduction of Underground River

The natural karst cave is divided into three floors, with a total length of about 1,860 meters (6,102 feet). The lower floor of the cave encompasses an underground river measuring about 1,500 meters (4,920 meters) long. The river winds its way to the depths of the cave with the width and depth of the waters varying greatly here and there. The zigzag river runs through three little picturesque gorges which were respectively called ‘Longmen Gorge’, ‘Lotus Gorge’ and ‘Banana Gorge’ according to their shapes. 
Along the banks, the extraordinary stalactites, stone pillars, stalagmites, stone flowers, stone curtains and stone waterfalls are a feast for the eyes. Some look like elephants, birds, subterranean palaces, wandering lions, paddling crocodiles, and unique pavilions, and some look like sea lions which are welcoming tourists.
