Cave is situated in Lipu County, some 95 kilometers
away from Guilin City. Fengyu Cave, which was named
by teeming with oil Feng fish in its underground river,
is commended upon "A cave links nine big hills,
wonderful landscapes are unique in the world."
At present, it is exploited becoming a new pattern of
journeys in Guilin City.
A Legend has it that, in an ancient dynasty,
two woodcutters who cut woods in the mountain, entered
a huge cave by mistakes. In the cave, there was babbling
water. What's more, they found precious oil Feng fish
in the water. So they captured them and contributed
them and contributed them to the government of lingnan,
and become the No.1 rich in the place.
Fengyu Cave has a total length of 5.3 kilometers,
and a subterranean river course 4.1 kilometers long.
There are many large chambers within the cave and 10
branches. The biggest chamber is more than 25,500 square
meters, with a cave height of 36 meters.
There are four parts to the cave complex.
The first is the (relatively) dry chambers
inside the cave, covering a length of 2.2 kilometers.
There are many brilliant and magnificent stalagmites
and stalactites which form stone curtains, and shapes
that have been named "the pagoda kingdom,"
"the paradise" and "fairyland" etc.
The second element is a boat tour on an underground
river, which has a total length of 3 kilometers inside
the cave. After boarding a boat on the river, the marvelous

The third part is in a big hall near the natural entrance
of the cave. It is a public place of entertainment where
people can drink, sing and dance inside the cave.
The fourth one is the water playground outside Fengyu
Cave used to provide entertainment in the evening.
This is a beautiful cave, with a lot of
stalagmites that are young and have grown quickly. The
dating of one stalagmite shows that it grew 2 meters
in only about 20 thousand years (from 25,000 to 3,000
years ago). Most of the stalagmites are slender. For
example, a stalagmite, named Dinghaishenzhen (marvelous
needle) is 9.8 meters high but only about 15 centimeters
in diameter. The colorful slender stalagmite forests
make the cave very fascinating
