Zhijin Cave Anshun Guizhou
The Zhijin cave is without doubt one of the prettiest of China as well as one of the largest. Everything in this underground place reminds of imaginary landscapes. Stalactites and stalagmites make the visitors dream and the gigantic proportions of the caves make them shock

Fantastic Location of Zhijin Cave

130 kilometers away from Anshun, lies a fantastic place yet little-known with the exception of speleologists and Chinese tourists. Zhijin cave is exceptional due to its size, its forms and its composition. Nothing is more impressive than the entrance to the site, which is 15 meters high, 20 meters wide, and consists of a form that resembles a Tiger hanging over. Once inside, one cannot help but scream of admiration. Even if the set of lights is not exceptional, the majestic beauty of the scene is no less extraordinary. Caves that can cover 70,000 m² succession and they are connected by narrow passages. Most of the ceilings of the rooms are between 50 and 100 meters in height, but one of them reached 150 meters is equivalent to a 50 story building! You have to see to believe.

Imaginary Forms

Stalactites and stalagmites that litter the cave over 12 kilometers have bizarre forms. Visitors leave free rein to their imagination to discover Puxian riding his elephant, the old woman and her daughter-in-law and many other representations. You can find a new form. The highlight of the visit is the silver rain tree formed by a huge 17 meter high stalagmite. No description, you will have the surprise on the spot, but the nickname already gives you an idea.

A Small Drawback

The cave is so large with its maze of holes. It almost seems you're forced to do the tour with a local guide in Chinese just to avoid getting lost in the maze. For 2-3 hours, he takes groups of minimum 10 persons in the depths of the cave to discover the wonders.
