The mouth of the cave is just big enough to let a person walk in. After some twists and turns, it's the "palace", a big hall 30 meters tall and 20 meters wide. Climbing up "tianti" (ladder to heaven), one gets to a second storey that offers a spectacular sight of stalactites in all shapes and sizes. You can even climb to a third storey called de "music cave", where the stalactites make musical sounds if you strike them with metal.
