If you are going on a yangtzee river cruise, you can check into your ship and walk to these caves. The cave is just average but the scenery is beautiful. There are a lot of steps. When you pass the cave and get to the bridge you can cross the bridge and go down the other side for some nice... More

The top of the cave has the Drum Beating Terrace and the pillar. This platform dates back to the Three Kingdoms Period (220-280) when general Zhang Fei of the Shu Kingdom, commanded his soldiers to these mountains by the continuous beating of a drum. There is a huge stone carved statue of the general facing the voluminous Yangtze River. A... More

San You Cave, or the Three Travelers Cave got its name from three Tang Dynasty (618-907) poets and officials who visited the area. The white statue of the three travelers stands right in front of the cave and there is a similar one, inside the cave. Our guide warned us that there would be a lot of stairs to climb... More

A great range of traditional chinese food in a cafeteria-like setting. We were treated to some very fine local delicasies in a room off the main eating area.

My family made the visit as my legs would not carry me up and down the many steps involved and most of these do not have an hand rail. I watched them from the bridge opposite and could see most of this beautiful place other than the inside of the caves.

A fascinating piece of Chinese cultural history, delightfully free of hawkers and other distractions. Allow several hours to fully explore this ancient site; there's much more than just the cave.
