Aside the JiuWan, there is a mountain slope with the name of Ba Wang slope. At the foot of the mountain, there is a cave called Ba Wang Cave. Walk up the steep slope and cross the road, you will see Ba Wang Cave. When you enter the cave, the stalactites, just like hammers, greeted you first.

After a stretch, you can see a row of stalactites. They are hanging in the centre and divide the cave into two parts. It is a good place to hide and seek. Magic mice- a couple of gray stone mice, their shining, fired-eyes seem to welcome the tourists at home and abroad.
