Did you know that the local Yao people living in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region’s Du’an county believe that mysterious and godly ‘white rhinos’ inhabit the area’s underwater caves? Or that primitive human species may have survived in South China’s Yunnan province until as recently as 11,500 years ago – long after the Neanderthals and more primitive humans had gone extinct?
From Maludong Cave in Yunnan province, the home of the Red Deer Cave people, to the mysterious human-made Longyou Caves of East China’s Zhejiang province, China is home to an incredible collection of underground geological structures.
