Furong Cave


This vast karst cavern is hung with dripping stalactites and lined with surreal rock formations, all lit up with multicoloured stage lights. Follow a guide along the raised pathway for some 2km, passing stone 'waterfalls' and rocks shaped like dragons or Buddhas.

From the Wulong bus station, shuttle buses run to Furong Cave, or you can take a taxi. Admission prices are lower in winter.
