Youyang Taohuayuan Scenic Area

Lying beside Youyang County, Youyang Taohuayuan Scenic Area spans an area of 50 square kilometers and consists primarily of Taohuayuan (literally a garden of peach blossoms), Fuxi Cave and Youyang Ancient City. It is a national forest park combining countryside scenery, natural ecosystems, karst geology and folk customs of the Tujia ethnic minority.

The first attraction you will encounter is Dayou Cave with luxuriant peach trees outside and a murmuring stream winding between them. In the dark cave are stalactites hanging from the ceiling in different shapes and sizes as well as age-old stone inscriptions that are difficult to read. Going through the cave, a stone corridor will lead you to Taoyuan scenic area with many well-arranged pavilions and terraces along the way. After walking down an antiquated plank road, you will encounter Fuxi Cave, a typical Karst cave with a total length of 3,000 meters. Within it are ample halls, meandering corridors, precipitous canyons, deep underground streams and dazzling stalactites.
