We came here on a day trip from Beijing. I recommend combining this with Lonquing gorge, which is a short drive away. It isn't worth a 2 hour drive on its own, but combined with the gorge it is OK. This is not a 'must-see'...More

We travelled most of the way to the cliff houses by public transport from Beijing and it took several hours on the 919 and 920 buses. It was particularly difficult to find the correct stop for the 920 bus because the 919 seems to go...More

We learned about these caves from the "day trips from Beijing" section of the Lone Planet Beijing guide. The caves sounded like an interesting place to visit but getting to them seemed like a fuss - 2 buses then a 2 km walk. We decided...More
