It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature ofthe river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites. and several large chambers. The lower portion ofthe river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the world's longest. At the mount of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water's edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.
