Plan your Wuyishan Tour? The Thread of Sky Scenic Area is one of the interesting attractions in Wuyi Mountain Scenic Area. The Thread of Sky, or A Ray of Sky is very close to the attraction of the colossal Roaring Tiger Rock. Very often people would first visit the Tiger Roaring Rock, then take a shuttle to the entrance to the Thread of Sky Caves area. The two attractions combined usually take you half day time.

A Thread of Sky refers to a fissure dark cave with a thin crack above from which light shines. People enter the cave and walk through a less than one meter rift that in the places less than 40cm.

Beside the a fissured dark cave, actually there are other three caves in a huge rock mountain – Ling Cave, Feng Cave and Fuxi Cave. People enter the Fuxi Cave and turn right squeezing through the narrow, high, dark, wet and long crevice – the Thread of Sky. The Thread of Sky is formed by mechanic widening of thin fissures in the rock.

It needs a fairly good shape of body and the gut to walk through the dark crevasse along the wet stone steps accompanied by the screaming of the bats around you. Are you afraid of excrement?

We are on the way to the huge rock with three caves and one fissure cave inside.
