During Spring and Autumn and Warring States period, it was the famous defile of China and east screens of Luoyang. During the anti-Japanese period, it was the center of Yuxi base. There are nine ancient fastnesses in it which are well preserved and of great value to appreciate.

The kids really enjoyed the cave, the scenery is beautiful and there is plenty for the kids to do. I would recommend taking the small bus up the mountain which is about 5 yuan per person, and then walking back. Don't go along the road to walk back, Take the staircase opposite the cave exit or if your more adventurous take the slide down... yes I said slide, which again is about 5 yuan and then walk 30 minutes through a park and across a rope bridge, all in all excellent value.
