History


Description

天龙古洞 (Tiānlóng gǔdòng, Tianlong Ancient Cave) is located only 6 km from famous Benxi Water Cave in the next valley to the east. It is located at the 天龙洞国家地质公园 (Tianlong Cave National Geopark). The cave has three levels, the lowest level is a river cave and not accessible. The guides explain, that the water flowing through this cave reappears at Benxi Water Cave.

It seems the locals try to participate from the popularity of Benxi Water Cave. Unfortunately their cave is less beautiful, and most people do not know about their existence. As a result it is a very good alternative if Benxi is crowded, during high season, but during low season it might be unexpectedly closed. They try to improve the cave with all kinds of selfmade them park attraction like inline skating on gras, riding horses, and shooting with arrows.
