Lurking Dragon Cave

The canyon is flanked by steep cliffs on both sides, with a trail meandering through it like a dragon, so it is named “Lurking Dragon Cave”. The trail with 102 steps leads you to a hidden but beautiful spot. The “Lurking Dragon Cave” is formed by weathering and denudation along the vertical fractures in the granite.


1Running water eroded and weathered granite mass along its vertical joint (fracture).
