It is something unique. Named moon Hill since shaped like a crescent moon. Not a bad view from the top but 1 hell of a climb to get there. It's a little way off from Yangshou town. About 8kms. Can catch a sharing van back to Yanshou bus station from there for 3 RMB if you've gone there without cycling... More

Rode our bike there from our tea Cosy hotel, hiked up and took some pictures! Good to get some exercise but view if Moon Hill is better from below for pictures. Best part was the little lady at the top xox

Bicycling around Yangshuo you may see this Moon hill. Only see this view from the road but not go to hill.I think moon hill come from the reason that you see this hill from far far way so you can imagine it's look lie a moon.

It was another hazy day when we stopped to visit moon hill and the sight was a bit underwhelming. The area around it is not particularly attractive but they have cleverly built a sort of platform/ statue/ altar for posing on with a dragon motive that blocks out the unattractive foreground so you can pose here and have you phot...

The site offers a short but steep hike about 200m up the karst to the giant hole in the rock. We went in the off season, so it was uncrowded and pleasant. The entry tickets are (for once in China) reasonably priced. Don't fret if you miss it--there are plenty of good hikes in the area--but it was worth the... More

Bit of a distance out of town and the views weren't that great due to haze. Wasnt a highlight for me, after a great bamboo raft trip and hiking between villages on previous days.

This was a great walk, with lots of stairs!! The kids counted them on the way, and there were just on 800 stairs. We had great weather for February. I think it could be quite hot in the summer time? Bring some water with you!! Not far away, on the opposite side of the main road, is a lovely restaurant... More

The view at the top and the formation itself is quite spectacular. It's very steep though so be prepared for a work out. Buy water at the bottom because it's more than twice the price if you buy it at the top. An easy bicycle ride out there and the banyan tree and plenty of caves etc on the way... More

Easy climb plus there is a slightly harder one all the way onto the top which gives an even better view.

Read other reviews regarding the views, I am going to take about moon hill lady. After a 30 minute climb we were greeted at the top by a very nice Chinese woman selling cool beverages. I bought a beer and my son started small talk. She carries a small book where people write messages to her in all different languages.... More
