1637 first explored by Xu Xiake.


Crown Cave is located on the bank of the Li River. It is known for centuries and has attracted countless poets, scholars and nobles. In 1637 this cave was visited by Xu Xiake, an early traveler. He is regarded the first visitors to this cave. This is a river cave with a great portal at the Li River.

The cave is very well developed with numerous weird vehicles. I may be visited by boat, lift, tram and theme-park type cars. They say it is listed in the Guinness book of World Records for the greatest variety of transport. We guess its in the Chinese edition.
