This is the main cave with the natural rock formations spread out like a miniature city, perhaps from a future fanstasy!
Reeds grow outside this cave (used to make flutes) and that is why this is known as the Reed Flute Cave. Inside the caves there are many inscriptions (in ink) and these date back to the first century AD (Tang Dynasty) and it is from these ancient inscriptions that we know that this cave was a popular tourist attraction even then.
Here you can see the stalactites and stalagmites curving upwards and downwards like spires and skyscrapers!
Imitation of some type of underwater garden but this is underground.
These stalactites and stalagmites look like carved figurines from a temple.
These rock formations have taken human form.
These rocks certainly look like mushrooms!
