  Goddess Cave
by akikonomu

The caves are formed over 600 million year ago. You can see fascinating staclatites and staclamites in the "Goddess Palace" (Shennugong) cave. With a little bit of imagination, you can see statues of goddesses congregating in their heavenly abodes.

There's also a Bat cave as well as other interesting caves. Also note the "holes" in the rocks formed by erosion (air bubbles generated by the rapid waters running through the caves drill into the rocks to form the holes)
