|Yunnan Kunming Jiuxiang Cave | Goddess Palace - Twin Waterfalls - Magic Fields - Bat Cave|
After Goddess Palace, we continued our journey to The Twin Waterfalls. Both waterfalls are about 30 m high and they meet in a deep pool of more than 10 m depth. Due to the strong water current gushing down, I could feel the sprinkles of water gently brushing my face as I stood next to the waterfall!
We are told that during the flood season, the two waterfalls will became one, which looks like a huge yellow dragon coming down from the cliff and produces loud, roaring sound. The maximum flow of the waterfall reaches more than 320 cubic meters per second, which ranks first among the cave-waterfalls in China.
As we climbed further, we then arrived at another major attraction – Magic Fields. This amazing God’s creation is just like tiers of paddy field, crisscrossed by nature. When the light reflects, it reminds me of the story our guide told us about the Yuanyang Rice Terrace in South Yunnan.
Our final hurdle was to climb up Bat Cave. This is the most challenging place as there are about 336 ascending steps. In fact, some of our team members have shown signs of giving up. Fortunately, at the beginning of the Bat Cave, there are laborers offering chair lift service. Pay 50 yuan, all you have to do is to sit on a chair and be lifted by two labors all the way up. Mind you, these people are really speedy! We estimate they took no more than 15 minutes to complete the entire Bat Cave.
We chose to complete the Bat Cave at our own pace. At the end of the expedition, there was a sense of achievement of satisfaction painted on everyone’s face. Cable way station was just a few steps away.
As we hop onto the open-air chair lift, my heart felt heavy leaving this magnificent place. This is one of the unforgettable experience - lovely caves, gorges, bridges, waterfalls and underground streams, at nature’s best!
Personally, I would recommend everyone that comes to Kunming. Do not miss out the superb nature of Jiuxiang!
