  Water Buffalo and Paul with mud and Moon Hill
by TexanInWien

We explored Monkey Cave while on our bike trip. I enjoyed the cave because we were basically free to go and climb anywhere we wanted inside it.

At the end, one can swim in a natural underground pool of water or mud.

While not an absolute highlight, it added some nice variety to our bike tour.

My buddy, Paul, and I took a plunge in the mud pool, and each of us painted himself from head to toe. The locals got a laugh out of watching us get sprayed down with ice cold water at the end of the cave tour (by a cute Chinese girl who was also a tour guide). I earned the nickname "water buffalo" (highly appropriate), and my buddy and I took the Chinese girl and one of her girlfriends out for dinner and beer a few nights later.

Address: Within biking distance from Yangshuo
