Yellow Dragon Cavern

Yellow Dragon Cavern is located in the eastern reaches of Suoxiyu Valley in northwestern Hunan Province. It is more beautiful than the outside world. Day or night, without fear of rain or wind, all year long, you can delight in its wonderful scenery. The cave is of good beneficial air circulation, and is cool in the summer and war in the winter.

Yellow Dragon Cave is one of the foremost scenic areas in Zhangjiajie, and was rated as one of the first AAAA National Tourist Attractions in China. Also it has been honored as magical karst cave both in China and in the world.

The cavern is typically karst, i.e., it is a limestone cavern which has been eroded over time to create large and small caves (many of which are interconnected), underground streams (that continue to erode the limestone where present), as well as smaller fissures. Like many such caves, Yellow Dragon Cavern, the largest such cavern in China, is only partially mapped out. The hitherto discovered part of the cavern is about 15 kilometers long, 140 meters high, and covers an area of about 50 hectares.

The inner recess is divided into four layers, two dry ones and two possessing waterways. The tally of natural wonders includes: one natural reservoir, 2 underground rivers, 3 pools, 4 waterfalls, 13 grand halls, 96 passageways and hundreds of thousands of stalagmites, columns and stalactites. The Yellow Dragon Cave is so complex and unfathomable, possessing such a multitude of geological features, that it’s impossible for us to take them all in at one time.

This “magical place” abounds with all the sceneries that we can enjoy in the karst caves and the stalagmites are in all different shapes. Many famous scenic spots have been developing: the Dragon Dance Hall, Sounding River, Immortal Waterfall, Heaven Pillar Street, and the Dragon Palace.

Yellow Dragon Cavern is visited by speleologists from near and far, as well as by more general tourists from near and far, both of which groups never fail to be awed by the rare beauty of the cavern.
