I've heard of Shihua Cave for a long time , And it's not far from my house , Less than 30 kilometers . Gaud map tells me it's less than 40 minutes' drive .
But I don't know why , We've never been there , Maybe it's because it's too close , I always feel like I can go at any time , Don't worry .
There is a saying that beauty produces distance , The cave in front of my house didn't go , I've been to many caves in other places , There is a famous water hole in Benxi 、 The Dragon Palace and Zhijin cave in Guizhou Province 、 Ludiyan in Guangxi, etc , There are some unknown caves .
The first visit to the cave is quite novel , I think the nature is really marvelous , Dark underground can also have a hole . It's said that stalactites every 100 It's only a centimeter in years , Those giant stalactites are the result of millions of years , How small man is in front of nature , Each of us has less than a centimeter of it .
More holes to see , I get used to the masterpieces of nature , Even aesthetic fatigue , If you look at the hole, there will be no shock and passion . Because I saw the hole in the field first , The famous scenic spot in front of my home has never been visited , But I'm not interested , When someone asked me about Shihua Cave , On the contrary, I don't know .
This year, because of the epidemic , Don't go out , Search the relevant scenic spots in Beijing , Don't search, don't know , A search found that Beijing is so rich in tourism resources , And a lot of them are not far away from themselves .
Before July this year , Most of the scenic spots in Beijing are closed , Now they are opening up , Beijing enters autumn in September , It's the best season of the year , It's also a good time to travel . We started this year's travel plan , Let's start with the scenic spots around us .
It's said that Shihua Cave is good , Then go and have a look .
Today is Sunday , It's cool , The weather forecast says there will be a shower , But it's sunny now , He doesn't care , set out ！
The road conditions in Beijing are better , The road is flat , It's cool to drive , Through several villages , Into the mountains , The mood has also broadened a lot , Eyes full of green , Mountain peaks are in front of you and behind you , The mountain road turns nine to eighteen , Keep turning the steering wheel . Mountains and rivers lead nowhere , Another village , That's what it feels like . I met many cyclists along the way , Teams of , well-equipped .
The road is changeable , There's an illusion , Think it's a long distance , In fact, it's only 20 kilometers .
Before you know it , Navigation says .
Park your car in the parking lot , It's a kilometer away from the cave , We didn't take the ferry , Choose to walk past . The scenery in the mountains is quite wild , There seems to be no overall planning in the village , It feels like it's a bit primitive . I saw many farmhouse restaurants along the way , Because the epidemic is very depressed now , No guests . It took ten minutes to walk , To the scenic spot , Only then did we find that the on-site ticketing has been cancelled , You need an appointment to get into the hole , Fortunately, there are not many people visiting now , We use it temporarily at the door APP Booking tickets .
In front of the entrance to the cave, we should gather together a group of people at a time , A guide will lead you into the hole .

Although there are seven floors in Shihua Cave , But now there's only one 、 And all three floors 、 Part of the tunnel on the fourth floor is open to the public , The tour is as long as 2500 rice .
I found out that our temporary team , Young and old , There are three children , The youngest is about five or six years old .
As soon as you get close to the cave entrance, there is a cool breath coming , It makes people shiver , Take your coat out of your bag and put it on .（ We did our homework in advance , With clothes ）
When you enter the cave, you will go down , The stairs are narrow , And it's all water vapor , It's slippery . Follow the guide carefully all the way , All the way to see are strange stalactites , It's like what you think of yourself , Three point image , Imagine seven .
Every time you arrive at a scenic spot, the guide stops to explain , These scenic spots are illuminated by red and green lights , Some are magnificent 、 Meteorological ten thousand , Some are small and exquisite 、 beautiful . This hole is still very beautiful , Compared with the caves I've been to in China , It's no worse , But the tickets here are much cheaper than those in other places .
