The climb is not that hard, it took us around 20 min to get to the moon. As other have already mentioned, the view from the "top" is a bit disappointing. However, you need to take an additional path with a "Passenger No Entry" sign to get to the real top of the hill. It takes around 10 additional minutes... More

This is a good walk, but be warned: it's all uphill and mostly up steps. Take water with you; the price gets higher as you do - obviously, since someone else has gone to the trouble of carrying it up for you! The formation itself is curious, and the view is good - but then so is any view around... More

Did not hike but viewed from ground level. Crowded and a tourist trap. Make the effort if you have the time.

It's a decent hike up to the lookout points. If you're fit and love walking, it won't be a problem. I think it took about 20 to 30 minutes to get to the top for me, but it was also in a heavy rain. It's a cool natural wonder, though there is not much else to do or see in... More

We biked to Moon Hill and then hiked up to the top. It was an enjoyable walk (800 steps I believe). You are rewarded with a lovely view. Definitely would recommend it. The ladies selling water at the top are quite persistent.

Up to Moon Hill was not a difficult walk at all. A managable amount of steps. The lady who sold me my ticket came across a bit sketchy, however, I went with it and it paid off. She was super old, but wow was she fit. she wasnt a guide, she didn't come up the hill with me. she just... More

Before you embark on the climb, make sure you have some water and snack to refuel on the way. 800 steps up is a steep climb, but the views are amazing. Also, note that it only makes sense to go all the way up - you can't see much on the way, so make sure you can do it. The... More

We cycled from Yangshuo (it takes about half an hour). The hike up is steep but short, nothing to worry about. Once you reach the top, you realise the views are better from below, unless you follow a small non-signaled path that takes you to the top of the hill. The views from there are really good!

We saw Moon Hill from a distance. Didn't hike to it as it would have taken all day. The saddest part it, it has become too commercialized. Down below is a little market, and they have the cheesy cardboard posters for you take take pictures of Moon Hill as well as with monkeys. Too bad. But go just to see... More

The Moon Hill is appropriately named but unless you are a die-hard hiking enthusiast, you can get great pictures even without taking the long, sweaty and not-too-pleasant hike. Stay on the ground level, specially if you are trying to pack in a lot in a few days. And of course, don't forget to click pictures.
