Guchaoyin Scenic Spot Introduction

Guchaoyin Cave, the rafting in the Yuyang River, the villages for holidays ect.The Guchaoyin Cave is the main spot, which is also called Xiejia Cave.
It is said that the army of Lizicheng,who was the leader of the Peasants Revolting Army in the late Ming Dynasty, were beaten in a fight against the government army, so they had to move to the southwest. When they passed the Niejiahe Town, the local nobles force, of which Xiejiaying was the head ,had a fight with the Peasants Army. But after several go-arounds, the Xiejiaying army weredefeated and ran away to the Guchaoyin Cave which was easy to defend, but hard to offend. The Peasants Army ran after to the Mt. Kuang, seeing a cave in the cliff, they found the cave was the o­ne that “if o­ne man guards the pass, ten thousand are unable to get through”. It was so difficult to attack that they gave up anwithdrew the droops, leaving for the southwest.
About 200 years later, in 1883, in order to recall the forefather’s ruins, the ninth generation of Xiejiaying, Xiehouzhi looked for and visited the cave with his friends. Seeing the cave, they were deeply moved, so they wrote some words and odes, andlet stonemen carve them o­n the walls of the cave. They were well-preserved, so now you can still watch the vestige clearly.
The Guchaoyin Cave is a big calcareous water-eroded cave which is about 530 million years old.Divided into two parts, the cave stacks up o­ne after another, links o­ne by o­ne, and connects with each other. No o­ne knows its deepth. In the upper cave, there is a giant pillar about 29 meters high and 37.8 meters around, which is the biggest o­ne in China national caves. o­n the walls in the cave, all shapes of stalactites are hanging. Some look as if they were mountains and waters, some seem to be decorated with exotic flowers, some appear as if they were umbrellas, some are like beautiful ladies, some are like lovely animals; They look ever changing and colorful by the blaze of shining lights. It’s a real feast for the eyes.
