We then drove back through Yung Dao and on to Water Caves near Yiling Village, Yangshuo. There we were taken through by a guide who spoke English, the driver came along too as he had not been there before. In the caves there is warm mud and it is possible to have a ‘mud bath’ and then on to a hot spring.
Also there are stalagmites and stalactites in all sorts of various forms and shapes. The cave is all lit up with coloured lights and rather kitschy, we were surprised that in spite of the warm damp atmosphere no algae have begun to grow.
