Xingyun palace Donghai Dragon Palace

Xingyun palace is located 13 km away from Dafang County and 172 km away from Guiyang. The tunnel extends in zigzag shape. The length of main tunnel and branch tunnel is more than 1100 m, and the total area is 15 000 m ". The highest point in the cave is 1460 m above sea level. The maximum width of the tunnel is 42 m, the highest is 30 m, and the lowest and narrowest part is less than 0.5 m. There are many types of stalagmites, stone pillars, stone falls, calcite crystals, beads and pools, skylights and funnels. In particular, the waterscape is particularly rich, with layers of terraces filled with clear mirror like pool water,] more than 0 odd shaped lotus pots are still growing in the water, some are lotus leaf edge, and some are round stone eggs, which are similar to lotus seed fruits; the star shining calcite crystals and the wonderful stone sculptures are amazing.
The cave was discovered only in September 1995, and it was immediately closed for protection. Experts from the project team of Guizhou Mountain Resources Research Institute were invited to carry out survey survey, preliminary assessment and development planning, and feasibility study was carried out from the aspects of landscape value, traffic, communication, water supply and power supply, environmental protection, service facilities and garden construction. After field investigation, the cave experts agreed that the cave has high value for sightseeing and scientific research, and it can be opened to the public with a little investment and development. Xingyun palace is less than 12 km away from Dafang County, and more than 1 km away from the seat of Yangchang town government and the former site of the first aeroengine manufacturing plant of the Chinese air force. It is understood that: the whole cave of Xingyun palace is distributed in a "t" shape, and the preliminary tourist route is 1100 meters long; the general height of the cave is between 15 and 25 meters, and the room temperature is 14 ℃. The cave has both water and drought, exquisite and compact, wide water array, and fresh air. The stone milk has unique shape, smooth lines, rich colors and distinctive features. The whole cave scenery is temporarily divided into 7 main scenic spots.
When you enter the cave, the cave will suddenly open up and become tall and open. This is the first cave Hall - "cave heaven and Buddha land". The giant Maitreya stone Buddha, sitting in the middle of the hall, faces the depth of the cave. The Giant Buddha, with his eyebrows and head down, is sitting upright. He is a great master of cave Buddha. He is very respected. What's amazing is that the walls of such a large cave hall are smooth. Apart from the Buddha statue, there is no milk accompanying it. It is only in a small cave behind the stone wall on the left side of the Buddha that a group of stone pillars and stalagmites are densely interspersed, which is really the king's exclusive.
Through a section of corridor, you come to the second cave hall. The second hall is a long corridor hundreds of meters long and climbing upward. White stone milk stands in clusters. Climb along the snow peak, but see a hundred feet of ice waterfall, covering the sky; a thousand years of cedar, pull up the ground shaking the sky. Along the way, small scenes emerge in endlessly, full of wit. To get to the ice and snow where there is no road, you have to climb the "ladder" to the top. Looking back, there are thousands of miles of glaciers and thousands of miles of snow peak.
The third cave hall is a flat and spacious hall, with mixed water and drought, and complete landscape. On the ground, terraced fields and stone dams are crisscross and crisscrossed, like fields and fields; on the top of the sky, stone curtains and curtains hang intermittently, like flowing gauze clouds; on the stone walls, stone waterfall calcium platforms rise and fall one after another, like high mountains and flowing water; in space, stalagmites and pillars are interspersed, like magic pestles and jade pillars. There is the patter of magma rain, three points of spring, three points of green, half of the spring wind and half of the cold.
"Dragon Palace in the East China Sea" is the most important scenic spot of Xingyun palace and the most magnificent landscape of this cave. A large hall of more than 2700 square meters and a large water array with a width of more than 100 square meters and a depth of 50-70 cm is of great scale and momentum. Overlooking from the other bank, the scenery on the opposite bank collapses and reflects it. The underground water is integrated, just like a crystal palace. The water is extremely clear and dust-free, and the underwater landscape is clear at a glance. Pearl corals are densely distributed in all kinds of shapes, with dazzling light. In this wide water array, there is also a magic "golden basin containing water". There are more than 10 perfectly developed cloud basins with different shapes and sizes. The largest one has a diameter of 110cm. According to the experts concerned, the number of cloud basins with perfect shape and growing in water has not been seen in the tourist caves that have been opened at present in China. Their sedimentary mechanism has high scientific research value.
Through the water array, you can see the stone wall high platform, the stone pillars and the stone curtain crisscross each other, setting off a small space. The three-level worship platform is high, and the walls are tight. It is a "main hall of the Dragon Palace", but the Dragon King is not sitting. Turning around the right side of the main hall, it turns out that the brothers are on a blind date, "and the Dragon gathers water.". Two dragons, one in front and one after the other, the Dragon sees its tail but does not see its head. But the dragon's scales, ridges, coiled body, and pale black color can imagine the dignity of the "Dragon King". Suddenly looking back: the three-level worship platform of the main hall turned out to be a triple waterfall. The waterfalls are wide and distinct, and the main hall of the Dragon Palace is magnificently rendered by flying pearls, splashing jade and flowing gold and silver. On the left side of the main hall, a group of stone cream and white alternate, with smooth lines, which is "nine lions make Lotus". The group of lions is vivid and energetic, and the "Lotus out of the water" is so beautiful and beautiful that it is ready to blossom.
Through the flowing clouds of the stone curtain behind the water array, we come to the sixth cave hall -- "Jiangnan Water Town". I see beautiful mountains and rivers, ten thousand hectares of fertile fields, solitary peaks and single columns, clear streams and clear water. At the water's edge, there are many stone lotus trees with pearls and emeralds; on the rock bank, there are thousands of bamboo poles, vigorous and vigorous; along the road, grain hoards are towering, and grains are plentiful; at the bottom of the water, there are pearls everywhere, picking up gold and jade. In this cave hall, there is also a very unique landscape -- "undersea world". Due to the dissolution, the surface collapsed and subsided, forming a large pit with a diameter of 15 meters and a depth of 15 meters. At the bottom of the pit, a 12 meter high cylindrical calcium platform was erected. There is a 7.8 meter high stone pillar beside the stage, which is just like an underground rocket launching site.
More worthy of a look is the "nine days of Milky Way", stone curtain empty column. From the top of the curtain, there is a thin stone curtain, and from the top of the curtain, there is a thin stone. This landscape, no matter from the karst structure, or ornamental value, can be called a unique.
The last scene of Xingyun palace is called "silver sky". As the name implies, we can know its scenery. In this cave, there are many wonderful things, such as "colorful jade pillars", "Penglai Fairy Island", "tit for tat", "Tiangong tower forest", etc Scenery.
Xingyun palace is a marvelous underground palace. The essence of the sun and moon is the magic of heaven and earth. It will open up to the outside world with a new look, and will show its elegant demeanor and brilliance.
