Guojia Cave is a karst cave with abundant stalactites inside. It is 7 km long and 1.5 km extends towards Swallow Cave. There are many swallow nests in the cave and tens of thousands of swallows, so it's well known as Swallow Cave. There is also a 1,000-square-meter lake running in front of the cave, where people can go boating and fishing.
