The Caves of Zhaoqing

While touring the city of Zhaoqing, we stopped at The Seven Star Crags, which is also called Star Lake, consisting of five lakes, six hills, seven rocks and eight caves. Inside this Cave Park there are over 530 examples of ancient and imperial stone engraving and almost all of them are still perfectly preserved. These underground caves were absolutely amazing.

 Among all the stone engravings in Guangdong, the ones of the Tang Dynasty are considered to be the most unique and inside this park are four of them.  Some of China’s most well renowned poems have been written along these walls.

People can tour four out of the eight caves located in this park: Stone Room Caves, Dragon Stone Cave, Green Cloud Cave and Lotus Flower Cave. Visitors can tour these caves either by boat or foot (We did both)! The tunnels vary in both shape and size and have over 330 recorded ancient stone engravings. Caves are opened from 7:30-17:30.
