The Crown Cave is located in the southern
suburb of Guilin, a crown-like crag earns the hill its
name, it stands on the bank of the Lijiang River with
a Crown Cave beneath it and this cave is located in
Caoping Village, 29km south of Guilin city.
What makes the hill a worthy stop for
both river cruise tourists and those arrive from Guilin
City by bus tour is its twelve kilometer long water-eroded
cave. The underground stream originated from Mt. Haiyang
empties into the majestic Lijiang River from this cave,
it is a wonderland of various stalactite, stone pillars
and rock formations in the cave. The cave itself is
divided into four parts, each connecting with one another.
Visitors can sail into the cave from Lijiang River and
admire the unique appearance of the cave which is dominated
by stalagmite and stalactite minerals.
The cave extends 12km, but only the 3km nearest the
river has been explored to any large extent. The cave
is protected by scheduled closures to ensure that its
unique qualities are not lost. Stalagmites abound inside
the cave making grotesque and imposing shapes that lead
people into a fairyland. The deepest spot is over 10
meters (over 30 ft). It is also possible to enjoy a
leisurely rafting experience after visiting this enchanting
Since it is open to tourists in 1995,
illuminating lights, sound control tour guide system
and escalators are equipped in the scenic area and sightseeing
cars and boats enable visitors to tour inside the cave.
The government plan to build this site as an all-round
tourist area including cave visiting, country sightseeing
and ethnic minority exploration. It is estimated to
become an important excursion site along the Lijiang
tours to Crown Cave:
