灵芝洞 (Yiyuan Lingzhi Cave) is named after the Lingzhi mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), as many speleothems in the cave resemble this mushrooms. There are so called cav corals, which often resemble corals, but sometimes also look like mushrooms or bulbs. They have a thin foot and get thicker, sometimes with a bulbous head, sometimes with a flat head. In this cave they have a thick head and a sort of rim or hat, similar to the namesake mushrooms.
The cave has six chambers with a pool with clear water and stone flowers, stalactites, and stalagmites.
