仙栖洞 (Xianqidong, ) is a cave system with more than 4 km of passages and three different levels. The cave was opened by locals, who were very enthusiastic, but they were not able to decide on a certain name. The possible names were 石花宫 (Shíhuā gōng, Stone Flower Palace), 深逐洞 (shēn zhú dòng, Abyss), 苍穹洞 (cāngqióng dòng, Sky Cave), or 一洞天 (yī dòngtiān, A Cave in the Sky). One day a monk visited the cave and was very enthusiastic, and he dubbed the cave the place where the immortals live, and so it was named 仙栖洞, Xianqui Dong, the cave where the immortals live.
