Had some time left before leaving the city and thought to give it a try - entrance is 55 RMB so quite high for China - inside so many fake things (not a natural cave) and so loud of all the local tour guides pulling hundreds of bus tourists through - a place to avoid

If the extremely loud and terrible quality speakers, blaring Chinese tour guide voices, don't put you off, maybe the gaudy Christmas lighting will. After paying to much as entrance, even before you leave the cave they're begging for more money. Then, once you actually leave the cave, you're dumped into a literal maze of stalls where the obnoxiously loud speakers... More

Loud, touristy, crowded, pushy. Even the dancing/entertainment had no cultural value. This was a complete waste of time and money and the biggest disappointment of my visit to Yangshou. Do yourself a favour and give this a miss.

There is no a really butterfly being here, It's famous for a butterfly-shaped stalactite.In the cave,many fantastic stalagmites. Buy tickets on a group-buying website , more cheaper.

I traveled this attraction because it was included in the package when I joined the tour. It was not attractive to me at all because the scenes and the cave were very common. Although there was a show that was inclusive in the entrance fee, I do not like any show in PRC right now because shows were in general... More

Entering the cave, you can see stalactites which are like butterfly. They are in different shapes, vivid and lively. The most unique one is that there is a piece of stalactite is the very image of the a couple of butterfly. It seems like that the two butterflies are whispering to each other.

If it wasn't raining really hard outside or close to our hotel, we wouldn't have done this. You enter a garishly lit cave with dubiously natural formations, pay 1¥ if you want to make a racket banging on some bells whose relevance is totally unexplained, cross a fairly uninspiring rope bridge, climb a bit to see a pretty cool view,...

Really not worth a visit: bad singing performance, noisy, growded and touristic. The small Cave looks artificial with ist colorful lights. Only good point was the slide down.

Make sure to take the slide down after you take some great views in from the top. It's 20 rmb to go down the slide. There will probably be lot's of people, but it makes for a pretty funny experience. If nobody else is in front of you, don't hold onto the sides, just let go and enjoy the ride.... More
