There are 3 parts: stone forest, stone sea and solution crevice with 83 caves in all, each with its own special architecture, some dome like others funnel shaped, some deep others shallow, a profusion of natural diversity. The grandest of all is the Tianquan cave, 4200 m deep with seven impressive halls along the route. Most amazing of all is the Hall of Cascading Light.
