Yellow Dragon Cave (黄龙洞), known as “the wonder of the world’s caves”, is one of the largest caverns in China. It is a karst cave, full of stalagmites, stalactites, underground streams, and large caverns. Located in the beautiful Zhangjiajie, this is one of the must visits when you are in the area.
You can enjoy a two-hour tour through the cave, including a boat ride and a hike with loads of steps.
Since we have old folks and children on this trip, so this is one of the rare trip in which we took via a Singapore tour agency.
Unfortunately, the local tour in China brought us to all kinds of shopping trips. Luckily with my connections in China, I managed to check all the information and “earned” this trip to cave! (the guide tried to cheat us by saying this cave was closed and brought us to shopping places and tried to pull scams on us instead.l.)
This aside, the cave is beautiful.
