    The 816 underground nuclear plant in Chongqing's Fuling district, named by some media as "the world's largest man-made cave," opened for the first time in more than 40 years to visitors, the Chengdu Daily reported Monday. The plant, totally hidden in Fuling's Jinzishan mountain, saw its construction work start in 1967, but in 1984, when it was almost completed, the country called it off due to a favorable international environment for China. The plant was declassified in April 2002. It is more than 20 kilometers long and has a total building area of 104,000 square meters. It also has 18 large main caves and more than 130 roads, branch caves, tunnels and vertical shafts. More than 60,000 people have worked for the plant during its 17-year-long construction.

    "the cave can withstand 8.0-magnitude earthquakes and atomic and hydrogen bombs, said a tour guide."
