About Crown Cave

This popular tourist attraction, also known as the Ganyan (sweet) Cave due to the presence of sweet spring water, is a wonder of nature. The hill above it resembles a crown from a distance that has earned it the name Crown Cave. The attraction's main pull factor is the unique way in which it can be explored, which has also earned it an entry in the Guinness Book of Records. Tourists can explore the four interconnected caves via the sightseeing elevator, by boat, and by train. The main allure of the cave is its mystical interiors which include overhanging stalactites and even a small waterfall. It also boasts the world's longest sightseeing sliding track which makes it a must-see.
