It's quite a climb, and you don't get to go right to the top, and some of the views are less-than-awesome, but it's relatively unspoilt, provides you with a great vista of the area, and there's the sense of satisfaction from getting up there. If I could have given it a 3.5 rather than a 4-star rating, I would have.

It is a curiosity. A hole in a mountain. Can be seen in 15 minutes or less. Don't miss anything else to see that, but if you happen to be in the area, why not?

We took the bikes from the hotel to the moon hill, took us 1 hour to get there, maybe more because it was my first time riding a bike on streets full of cars. I started climbing the stairs but my friends decided not to, since we still need to go back by bike. So make sure to get there... More

Visitors have to pay to enter the parking lot, so we just stood at the roadside & looked at the hole in the hill.

A great place to view the landscape if there are not to many tourists around. Soon everything will be totally touristified so make it priority while it's still decent.

We climbed this in the morning when it was not very busy so enjoyed a relaxed walk up to the top and plenty of room to move around and grab photos. For a reasonably fit person, the walk up takes 30min. The views at the top ate nice but not as good as 'Guilin Laozhai' hill. the moon home in... More

The moon hill is a magnificent sight. The entrance fee u have to pay only provides u with the path to hike up to the moon hill. Also if u go hiking up to the hill u have to be wary of a lot of moskitos, i recommend wearing longsleveed shirts and pants. If u only want to see the... More

At the bottom of Moon Hill you will meet Mama Moon, who will make your hike to the top much more exciting! She gives great discounts by cutting her way through the forest. Save yourself a bit of money. The walk up is steep and tiring, but very rewarding view! Takes about 2 hours return. Wish we could have stayed... More

Definitely worth the hike, the views from the top were quite spectacular in both directions. When I was there, there were climbers rappelling down from the top of the peak, wish I could have gotten involved, although it did make for a great picture.

Beautiful views from the top of Moon Hill. Hardly any tourists and worth the 820ish stairs to the viewpoint. Take water and bug spray and be prepared to sweat! Definitely worth it for those that are able to make the hour hike (40 min up and 20 down).
