What people are saying:

I reported the day trip to Lushan in and went to Lushan Dripping Cave. Dripping Cave is a distance from Chairman Mao's former residence and needs to be taken by car. At the same time, the ticket office is 6 kilometers from the building where the actual Dripping Cave is located. You can walk or take an eco-car. The environment is quiet here, the water of a spring in the ticket for Building 1 can be drunk directly!

Additional Information


Dishui cave is seated in Shaoshan, Xiangtan, Mao Zedong’s hometown. The water continuously drips all year round, hence the name "Dishui", which means to drip. The dripping water almost sounds like the sound of a piano. The mountain peaks are capped with green. The trees are lush. The bamboo is slender, and the natural landscape is elegant. Below Dishui cave lies Mao Zedong’s ancestral home, Dongmaodishui Cave. There is a gate built on this mountain, the top of which is lined with gray stone stalactites inscribed with four characters, “Di Shui Dong Tian”, translated as “the dripping water cave”. The first building encountered at Dishui Cave is known as The Chairman’s Villa. It is a simple brick and tiled house where Mao Zedong lived in years gone by. It has now been restored into a showroom filled with items used by the Chairman when he lived there.
