The first to the sixth layers are the cave scenery area and the seventh layer is the underground river. There are twelve huge "cave halls" which are interconnected with countless narrow passages, sixteen "cave chambers" and 71 "branch caves" in many sizes and shapes.The inside is a fairyland on earth.
