Must see · Cave · Nature / Park
Wandering the illuminated chambers and halls of Cango Caves, you'll encounter a staggering number of fascinating dripstone formations, ornate crystals, stalactites, and stalagmites. If you're feeling adventurous, you can opt for the two-hour tour, during which you'll need to climb the rocks and crawl into narrow, claustrophobia-inducing passageways, to discover the cave's more remote grottos and pools.

  • What a great tour. We did the Heritage tour which takes about 60 minutes and went into all the big caves. Well the rock formations are stunning!. Hundreds of millions of years old. Incredible! Great guides. A visit well worth it.
