Water Caves, Yangshuo County

2.0
#5 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. See Water Caves and all Yangshuo County has to offer by arranging your trip with our Yangshuo County trip itinerary planning app .
