What an amazing cave !
4.0 of 5 bubblesAug 2018
In nineteen eighties something, I have paid a visit to a cave called "Yaolin Wonderland" in Hangzhou, China. Without any handrails installed along the narrow path, it was extremely difficult for a visitor to step forward. Mind the step might totally destroy the asthetic mood. From Yogyakarta downtown to Goa Gong, it took almost three hour-ride. After arriving the fork of a road, the driver drove the car to a large parking lot at the opposite side of the slope and advised me to take a short ride by motorbike to the starting point as no car could go uphill. The route was operated by the locals--- first, the driver drove the visitor to the booking office to buy ticket, then headed directly to the starting point. The whole journey lasted for less than ten minutes, but the charge of this single trip was IDR5,000. At the entrance of the cave, hawkers persuaded the visitors to rent flashlights before stepping inside. A pitch of black was in my estimation, but even without flashlight in hand, I had no problem at all because the whole cave had been illuminated by colorful spotlights. With well designed handrails provided on both sides of the winding path down to the bottom, small kids could access easily, neither a pram nor a stroller was allowed. I walked down the stairs with my hand on the banister as water was dripping down from above, and the path was very slippery. Stalactities and stalagmites stood aside on my way with colorful spotlights straight spotting. Ventilators were planted at regular intervals so no musty smell existed. It is better to go there on weekdays, otherwise the cave may be crowded with holidaymakers.

Super beautiful cave with stalactites and stalaknit a sprinkle, two thumbs up is not enough to describe

immediately after entry into the cave, the mouth is endlessly amazed.
stretch of stalactites and stalaknit in various shapes and colors just really exciting to be enjoyed with your eyes. Required good quality flash to capture the beauty that is very charming.

entry is quite good, it's just that the lights inside the cave is less color, just white. If the light is in the cave full-color (green, yellow, red and so on, of course, her beauty more exposure.

The best time to enjoy its beauty is from the morning until late in the afternoon, because after that the cave became darker.

go and see for yourself the uniqueness of this one cave matchless :)

when I got to the gate, I was skeptical of this cave. but all disappear right at the first step into the cave. incredible, amazing, I can only say wow!! in every steps along exploring this cave . I've visited several caves on the island of Java, but for me this is the best. all look still original, stalagmites and stalactites still growing. There are 7 rooms in this cave, which they refer to as "Gong" was in room 7, where there are stalagmites and stalactites that come together and form a large wall. The cave is a bit steep, so for visitors should be careful.

We had never heard of the Guo Gong caves but happened to come across them while driving around the area with our nephew. What a fantastic cave this is. It is really huge with about 7 different main rooms all linked together with very well made walkways, steps and handrails. The stalactites and stalagmites are incredible and possibly the best I have seen anywhere in the world. In New Zealand we have some very good caves but this one is special. They have installed very clever lighting effects which enhances the whole experience. There are huge ventilator fans which keep the air circulating at a pleasant temperature. This was an amazing experience, something that the area can be very proud of and should be advertised much more aggressively.

This is our first time entering the cave. Since the first step this cave is very amazing, they put colorful lights all along the cave, creating mystical as well as fantastic sights. The stones is vary from stalactite, stalagmite, marble and chrystal. Watch out of the slippery steps because of the humidity of the cave.
Better come early in the morning when the visitor still not crowded, avoid enter the cave when it's crowded because you might feel hot and hard to breathe.
But after all, this cave makes you admire the God's creation.

the cave is spectacular. It's a little bit dark and slippery there so better to watch out.
The cave is quiet big and there are lamps there and stairs, so it was really nice cave.

This is my second time come to this amazing cave, when I first come here, it still as it was, humid, muddy, slippery cave with a little light here and there. But when I come again, the already build the stairs and light everywhere, so we can see the real beauty of this cave. But there is the downside of all those light, it make the inside cave so hot, event they places some fans everywhere. But really it worth to visit.

If one is into mass tourism, this may be your choice. But those who seek grandeur in peace, forget it! So touristy.
The area is full of hawkers pushing flashlights and photo services.
The path is narrow, steep and often slippery.
Everything has become artificial - lighting and cooling.
But if you're curious - avoid weekends and holidays, unless you like being a sardine
