“Mud in the dark”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Not worth the money. Not much to see. Once you've seen blue caves in Laos or bat caves in Cambodia this is just a dark hollow full of muddy water and tourists. There are many better attractions around Yangshuo.

“You mean the Mud Caves”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Really? If you're young and into jumping into a "mud" bath that every other human being has been in and it probably hasn't been cleaned in forever, go ahead here!!! I was slipping and sliding through the entire cave. The tour guide had to hold my hand! It did like it because caves are just neat. You learn about the underwater river and a whole bunch of neat things. However, don't go if you think you might possibly slip and break something. The cave is deep and dangerous and if you break something, they have to haul your tushy somehow out of there. Be safe!

“A fun experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

This is fun! i think we all go here for the mud bath and hot spring but before you get there the guide takes you through the caves. It's a pretty good cave and you go quite deep but the guide will just point out shapes where you often have to stretch your imagination to see what they're seeing. Mud bath is very cold and more like dirty water but it's pretty cool floating around. The hot spring isn't natural but it's nice going in after the mud bath. You should be able to get a ticket for 40RMB - shouldn't need to pay more although they will try and ask for 80.

“So much fun - highlight of trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

The rock formations in the cave were beautiful and mostly well presented, if a little overdone at times. The mud bath was so much fun - favorite part of the trip for my sons (ages 7 and 9, the 4-year-old did not like it so much). We all enjoyed relaxing in the hot spring. All in all, a great experience.
