Emperor Cave (皇帝洞) & Wangxia Underground Palace (王下地下宫):

 

 

 

Emperor cave is a large limestone cave, 60 kilometers from the county capital of Changjiang. Extending from west to east, the entrance is 60 meters wide, about 130 meters deep, 25 meters high, covering about 7,800 square meters. It can accommodate thousands of people. Inside the cave are colorful stalactites and shapes. Archaeological experts have collected Neolithic artifacts from inside the cave, and some are displayed at the Hainan Museum in Haikou. Outside, the cave is surrounded by mountains, range upon range of peaks, and the Nanyao river. The Underground Palace is also a karst cave with strange stalactite shapes and colours.

 

Nanyao River (南尧河):

 

 

 

The second largest tributary of the important Changhua River. With a length of 41 kilometers, a drainage area of 371 square kilometers, and a total drop of 1347 meters, Nanyao river is very scenic because it runs through a karst valley (hence the abundance of caves in the area). Part of the river is known locally as 'Mural Corridor' (十画长廊) because of the colourful karst cliffs towering over the river.
