Walking deeper to the dimmed showcase gallery, you will be struck by the beauty of the Golden Flowstone.

Standing at a height of 90 metres, Golden Flowstone describes the sloping and wavering floor and wall of the cave which has a golden hue when water flows over it and illuminated by gentle light.

Stalagmites and stalactites on walls and ceilings take various astounding sizes and shapes.

Your eyes seem to play tricks on you when images of dolphin, jellyfish, tiger, lion, cow's head, seahorse, old man, Lord of Buddha and Zorro's eye come into view.
