Yellow Dragon Cave is more beautiful than the outside world. The cave is of good beneficial air circulation, and is cool in summer and warm in winter. Yellow Dragon Cave is one of the most famous scenic areas in Zhangjiajie, and which is 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.
This system of caves is a classical karst formation, and you know that water is playing an important role in its development. Flowing into the fissures of the karst layer, water continuously dissolves the limestone rock, therefore widening the crevice. This process continues year by year and this is how the caves are formed. The cave system covers an area of 140 meters. The inner recess is consist of 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, 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 Cave is situated in Suoxiyu natural reserve which is a 15 minute drive from Suoxiyu town and 20 minute drive from Zhangjiajie National Park. Yellow Dragon Cave is the longest one in Asia. The cave remained mysterious to local villagers before the first caving adventure took place in 1982 as they believe it was the holy home for yellow dragon and spirits. Now the routes are well paved and well lighted. Sturdy walking shoes, flashlights, and water are necesarry when you explore the cave.
