Our tour guide brought us here instead of the Reed Flute Caves, Because of the weather, and he said these caves are better than those! He had been to the Reed Flute caves many times. This cave is a walk-through cave with so many beautiful formations! It was very nice. At the entrance you can ring the Tibetan bells with... More

Just as good (if not better) than comparable caves like the Reed Flute in Guilin and others around Yangshuo. Slightly further away from town (20-25 min by car), but also slightly less people. You do not need to follow a tour group around the cave - which is a huge plus. Instead you get an (optional) audio guide and are... More

There are seats only from the mid-way and at the end of the cave. A lot a lot of stairs both up and down. It gets a bit too warm when you're reaching midway. There are fans placed at some parts of the walk. The walk is approximately 1 hr. It could be faster if you don't take so much... More

We went to Silver Cave because it was raining and we were looking for something to do inside. It takes about 45 minutes to drive there from Yangshuo where we were staying. Our hotel booked the tickets and the driver. Once you get to the cave, you have about a 1.5 km walk ahead of you to walk the entire... More

I thought this was going to be a cheesy waste of time. To my pleasant surprise I really liked the Silver Cave. It shows the wonders of natures in a way that is easy to enjoy. Did not have a problem with the shops inside or near the exit--- it's typical for tourist attractions everywhere. Recommended

This place is huge and just gets better the further you walk in it. Get a pro picture taken as your pictures won't do it justice. We are now the proud owners of a photo with the two of us on a gold throne. Surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites. Quality.

This large, deep limestone cave is an interesting diversion in the karst hills of Guanxi province. Many of the large and small formations are quite lovely. But, from the moment we walked into the cave, we were overwhelmed by the bright colors of the lighting, pink, purple, green, blue, red. The other thing that made us uncomfortable was that the...

I had some time to spare in Yangshuo so I decided to visit this cave. It is a 45 minute drive from the city center but it was certainly worth it! The place is very nice illuminated, which makes this natural drama even more spectacular. In the cave there are some nice reflections in the water. Make sure to get... More
