Why is Zhijin Cave so Special?
National geographic research departments such as “chinese national geography” under the jurisdiction of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have also given high praise, calling it “the king of China’s karst caves” and “Huangshan returns without looking at the mountains, and there is no cave outside Zhijin Cave!” On September 19, 2015 (17: 00 p.m. Japanese time), Zhijindong National Geopark was officially approved by UNESCO to join the World Geopark.

Main Attraction of Zhijin Cave
Reception Hall (Yingbin Ting)
Owing to the sunshine from the mouth of this cave, moss grows in the hall. At the top of the hall is a circular ventilated opening through which sunshine penetrates to the bottom of the hall. Under the sunlight, remaining beads around the opening glisten tremulously like myriads of crystal coins falling from heaven.
Longevity Palace (Wanshou Gong)
At an early period in history enormous rocks collapsed from the summit and then accumulated into a mountain now called Mt. Longevity (Mt. Wanshou Shan). Later, karst accumulations covered the mountain. Beside Mt. Longevity the crimson bloodstone glitters like a peacock spreading its tail to display his fine feathers.
After seeing the natural cave wonders, you can visit the local minority villages of Buyi, Miao and Yi ethnic minorities.

The ancient town of Zhenyuan is penetrated by the Wuyang River and is divided into two parts: the south “Wei City” and the north “Fu City”, forming a watery region.
