-Travel to Dragon Palace

The Dragon Palace is made up of over 90 caves that runs through over 20 hills and stretches 15 kilometers. Located in the western suburbs of Anshun in Guizhou Province, lies the home of the mythological Dragon King. The magnificent cave system known as the Dragon Palace Cave got its name because of its resemblance to the Dragon King's palace described in one of China's most influential novels, "Journey to the West". Here is also an underground river that flows in the caves, making some of the guys dry and some a little damp.

The scenic spot has four main areas, namely, the Rape Lake, the Whirlpool, the Leech Pass and the Dragon Palace itself. Among them, as the most famous and wonderful scenic spot, the Dragon Palace includes various Karst (Limestone) landscapes, solemn steep cliffs and jagged stone forest. The Dragon Palace can be divided into five groups of limestone caves connected by the underground river. There is a boat that travellers can board on a nearby river that will provide a view of the caves and go through a deep maze and bring you bright lit halls. Visitors can hire small boats and cruise through the cave. They never fail to marvel at its beauty.

The cave's atmosphere changes the farther visitors travel. Parts of the cave have an other-worldly feeling, while other parts feel eerie.nside the caves there are several stone pillars in the shape of different animals and humans. There are two chambers that are formed by the underground waterway, the outer and inner chambers. The inner chamber has a flat place that serves as a dock where people can get off and visit, while the outer chamber has a platform which leads to the Tiger's Den. Here are long stone ladders that will eventually lead back to the gate and to Stone Forest Park.
