Although we know it will be painful, we decided to climb up Moon Hill, a famous karst mountain with a moon-shaped hole near the top. Well, the view up there is really worth the effort! After that, we went rafting again, but this time on the Yulong (Dragon) River, which is not as wide as the Li River. The bamboo rafts are 2-seaters (vs 6 on the Li) and man-powered (vs motor powered on the Li) but the scenery is just as amazing. Matthias and Oscar enjoy yet another day of "Water War". After the ride, we booked tickets to see an amazing show, set in the largest natural stage stage in the world and directed by the same person who directed the Beijing Olympics Opening Ceremony. 600 participants!
