To visit 115 tiankengs in Shuangxing Village

By Tao Wei | Updated : Apr 09, 2021
Shuangxing Village is a picturesque small village with 115 tiankengs of various sizes. Relying on the tourism of the core scenic spots in Wulingyuan, it activates the rural tourism economy and has created one integrating entertainment, leisure, vacation, and catering. Thus, this village has transformed from a mountain village into a popular tourist attraction.

Shuangxing Village, characterized by a harmonious combination of modernization and nature, has relatively complete infrastructure so that tourists will not feel jolted when driving on the road. Visitors could live and eat in homestay hotels and farmhouses, explore the 115 tiankengs, and visit the ancient camphor trees with a history of more than 300 years, and a number of underground karst caves in the whole village.

The largest tiankeng in the village named “Tiger Cave”, which is called as “lǎo hǔ kuì” by the local people, is an undeveloped natural pit covering an area of more than 50 mu (about 3 hectares). It is the first choice for outdoor enthusiasts to adventure and camp in it, but safety should be paid attention to. In addition, there is Guanyin Cave Scenic Area, which is under development and construction.
