The Alu caves are a popular attraction in Mang City, formerly known as Luxi, in China's southwestern Yunnan province. Three main caves are joined by easy walking paths, and tours include a boat ride among the impressive formations within, which are lit by colorful hues and the reflections from shallow pools. The formations have exotic names such as "King Wei Deploys His Troops" and "Woman Longs for Her Husband."
Dehong Mangshi airport, about 4 mi/6 km from the city, offers regular 45-minute flights departing for Kunming. Both Dali and Kunming are about eight hours away by bus.
