Dragon's Mouth is claimed to be the world's largest known underground waterfall. This 80-foot high cascade is frightening in its raw power; the whitewater plunges with extreme fury through a narrow opening and can be viewed at close range from above as well as from below, where it explodes out of a gigantic cave entrance to feed a major river. Here there is a large and elaborate statue of a dragon. The cave system that feeds the falls is called Long Dong, a funny name to English speakers but actually it means Dragon Palace Cave. This is a series of short caves upstream from the falls that can be explored by boat.
