Wandering the illuminated chambers and halls of Cango Caves, you'll encounter a staggering number of fascinating dripstone formations, ornate crystals, stalactites, and stalagmites. If you're feeling adventurous, you can opt for the two-hour tour, during which you'll need to climb the rocks and crawl into narrow, claustrophobia-inducing passageways, to discover the cave's more remote grottos and pools.
