Crown Cave, located in Caoping Village,
29km south of Guilin city, is one of the most famous
tourist spots along Li River. Taking the shape of a
crown, this cave, standing on the bank of the Li River,
for hundreds of years, has attracted countless poets,
scholars and nobles. In 1637, Xu Xiake, an ancient traveler
in China, visited here and was regarded as the first
visitors to this cave.
The cave lasts for 12km, and only 3km
near the river is explored. Due to the perennial obturation,
the cave was well preserved. Inside the cave, stalagmites
stand here and there, grotesque and imposing, leading
people into a fairyland. An underground stream originating
from Mt. Haiyang empties into the Li River from this
cave, with the deepest spot over 10 meters. Equipped
with automatic light and sound control guide system,
the cave now looks more enchanting than ever. Besides,
modern facilities such as railroad car, yacht and sightseeing
elevator provide convenience to visitors.
Rafting on the river, people not only
can enjoy the wonderful sceneries in the cave, but also
can experience the pleasure of exploration.
