Halfway up the hill of Qingtong Mountain is the Jinxiu Palace karst cave. There are various kinds of stalactites inside of the cave. When lit up by colorful lights, the stalactites turn the cave into a whimsical place. The cave is 1,000 meters long and is considered a rare stalactite cave in Jinan.

The Jinxiu Palace karst cave is connected to the Longgong Palace, which is even more magnificent and mysterious. The Longgong Palace tourist attraction is divided into two halls, including 10 breathtaking scenic sites. The temperature inside the karst cave and the Longgong Palace stays around 18 degrees Celsius all year round, so in summer visitors should wear a jacket before entering the sites.
