“Mudbaths”
Review of Water Caves

Water Caves
Reviewed 25 October 2012

Of the things we did in Yangshou, this was one of the most fun things to do. A piece of advice for those coming - just get their shoes and keep all your own things until you reach the mudbaths. There are change rooms there which you can use right in the caves. But that being said, the walk through the caves is pretty (although they are kind of lighted in a gaudy fashion), but themost fun is in the actual mudbaths themselves, which are not to be missed. After the mudbaths you walk a bit further in the caves and reach the hot springs, which are a nice contrast to the muddy (and slightly cool) mud springs. It's so relaxing and an incredible feeling as you float on the water. Go there. Have fun. Swim in the mudbaths.

The walk through these caves were really interesting and we had fun in the mud baths as well as the warm pools afterwards. It's an interesting experience to swim/float in the mud bath. If you're with kids this is a must as it is lots of fun and creates great memories.

The guides are helpful, but there is little about preservation here. It's a little sad to see that they are "using" it up and allowing people to touch it all. Plus it's been modified to suit the needs of tourists.

Yet, overall it is still a great 1/2 day out.

Pouring with rain so asked Lee on reception at our hotel (Moondance Boutique Resort) for options of things to do. She suggested the water caves and we set off protected with raincoats and hotel umbrellas for the 10 minute walk from our hotel. Had read on Trip advisor not to get ripped off on the admission price and not to pay more than 50RMB. At the ticket office at the bottom of the hill (right on main road) the young girl told us admission price was 120RMB each. We told her we had read this was not correct and told her we would not pay that amount. After a bit of negotiation eventually settled on 50RMB each. When we got up to the caves we were told the next tour was in 15 minutes. Our tour guide was friendly and knowlegeable very safety conscious - constantly pointing out steps etc. He spoke very good English although his accent was a bit difficult to pick up on everything he said. We ended up being the only people on the tour. Formations are amazing and you go down quite some depth into the mountain. It is a bit cheesey with all the coloured lights. A photographer accompanied us and took a few photos of us. We purchased one for 30RMB. Gave the mud baths a miss (water was cold) but soaked in the hot pools for 30 minutes which was very relaxing. A great way to fill in an hour or so on a rainy day.

So, first of all, mud cave = awesome. People are really buoyant in the mud; it's fun to play in. I would suggest skipping this activity on cold days. Second, the karst caves are limestone caves; they're really old, and super cool. Especially if you're a geology nerd.
