The two large entrances on a cliff wall of this cave, are about 30 m above Yin Jia Dong 1, and very likely represent the fossil resurgence of the latter. The cave is made of large sub-horizontal, phreatic galleries spaced out by large rooms filled with sand. The main branch starts oriented to the West (downhill branch), but after 300 m it abruptly turns to the North (uphill branch) in what seems to be a cave rejuvenation, characterized by an out-flowing air draft. The cave was explored for about 1 km.
