Water Caves, Yangshuo County

1.9
#7 of 13 in Nature in Yangshuo County
The otherworldly Water Caves is filled with colorfully lit stalagmites and stalactites, affording visitors a refreshing and novel way to escape the heat bubbling in its central mud bath. A paved path throughout the caves allows passage deep into the mountain and makes it an easygoing adventure, accessible to most travelers. Make sure you bring along swimwear and a towel if you plan to take advantage of the mud bath--you can rinse off afterwards in the fresh water pool hot spring towards the end of the cave. Wear sturdy shoes with plenty of grip. A visit to Water Caves represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Yangshuo County vacation builder to plot your vacation.

    The cave has a different name than listed here: the golden water cave. Attraction that almost exclusively by Chinese is visited. Very nice cave where you can walk through it in half an hour-45 minutes. The Chinese do their best to in all rock formations to see something. A Buddha statue, a throne, a frog. It's all fair-like what lit but pretty nice to look at. And you can if you want to take a dip in the mud and then take a shower. Next to it is a show where they try to lubricate your tickets for: not do when you are Westerner. Moderate quality and you get no wood of because long stories in Chinese.

    As part of a trip towards moon Hill / Banyan tree / assembling dragon cave rafting and environment is this cave with its special formations like the curtain what special. Unfortunately, the great formations are rather disfigured as highlighted by the colored lighting. Is China. The mud bath and I've tried warm water pool, these can also be enjoyed without cave visit. Duration about 1 hours 73 rmb entrance fee.

    Some of the formations in the caves are borderline ruined by the lighting but are still impressive enough. The real fun is to be splashing about in the mud pool and hot spring.  more »
