The karst cave in Kaiyuan is named for the cliff stone carvings in Kaiyuan period of Tang Dynasty. It is large and tall with a length of more than 1100 meters. It is divided into six halls. The natural scenery in the cave is exquisite, vivid and dazzling. The cliff carvings of Neolithic Age, Tang Dynasty and Song Dynasty in the cave are even more remarkable.

Main attractions

From the Shancheng Bodong 40 miles to Kaiyuan Cave, known as "the first cave in Shandong Province". The karst caves in the world are different, but the magnificent Kaiyuan Cave is comparable to the Reed Flute Rock in Guilin, Guangxi. Kaiyuan Cave is a corridor hall cave, 1280 meters long, the highest and widest place up to 30 meters. It consists of eight halls, with more than 100 scenic spots and sceneries for tourists to enjoy. Each hall has its own unique lighting layout using China's advanced light source technology, which brings different visual effects to people.

Water curtain Hall

The first Hall of Kaiyuan Cave is called "Water Curtain Cave Hall". The stalactites in the cave have different shapes, and the stone mantle, flag and stalagmite are pleasant to the eye. "Water Curtain Cave" is named after a small hole in the stone wall. The temperature in the cave is constant throughout the four seasons, and the perennial temperature is kept at about 15 degrees. The indistinct words "Li", "Female" and "Meet" on the stone lion-shaped stalagmites have been identified by experts as Song Dynasty stone carvings, which have a history of nearly one thousand years. When Kaiyuan Cave was first discovered, people entering the cave found a pile of human bones beneath the stalagmite. It is supposed that maybe Li Mou-mou died here, and Zhao Xing, who was with him, wrote the inscription here.

Dragon Ridge Hall

The second hall is Longji Hall. Longji is also called Tiangou. The total length is 45 meters. There are almost all dragon ridges from one hall to six halls. Such a long, large, deep and beautiful dragon ridge is rare in other karst caves. So this is one of the characteristics of Kaiyuan Cave. The large and small white round stalactites on the wall of the cave make up the scenery of "lost jellyfish". There are three distinct stone carvings on the surface of stalagmites in this hall. It was certified by experts as carved in the first year of Tang Kaiyuan.

Pearl Hall

The third hall is the Pearl Hall. There are also many marks on the roof of the hall. Some of them are filled with calcite, and many of them are stone carvings of the Han Dynasty in China. Some difficult words have been made into rubbings and sent to relevant departments for research. Kaiyuan Cave has not only important tourism value, but also precious archaeological value. The top wall of the cave is covered with snow-white spheres, which are very similar to pearls, so it is called "Pearl Beach". The name of spheroids is stone grapes, which grow into corals and are called stone corals. The chemical composition is calcite, white. Its large distribution is also rare in other caves. It belongs to one of the cave treasures of Kaiyuan.

Ju Xian Hall

There are scenic spots, water sources, springs flowing into the East China Sea, rushing to the top of the heavens, which is the land of peach for thousands of years. There are "Pansil Cave" in the hall, the "Brahma Buddha Pagoda" inhabited by immortals, the "primitive ancestors", "Damo wall" and "longevity stars" respected as Chinese Buddhism Zen, which are really like gatherings of immortals.

Longevity Hall

The fifth hall is Longevity Hall. Longevity Hall is majestic and tall, about 25 meters high, with many stalactites. The beauty of longevity hall is like the beautiful colorful stalagmites of the King of Heaven Tower. The beauty is like the beautiful scenery of Guilin's poetry. The beauty is like a village, with thousands of lights, and even more beautiful is like the hot and red magma of ancient volcanoes. Stone flags were flying on the cliffs. On the top of the white waterfall, there was a petrified box engraved with the words "Golden Bar Tibetan Record". This humanistic landscape with marine fish fossils adds some mystery to the longevity hall. "Source source" outflows longevity water, it is said that drinking will be healthy and longevity.
