A good opportunity to blow out the cobwebs by climbing the 800 odd steps to the limestone structure. The views from the top are worth the climb, of course the quality depends on the haze factor unfortunately.

Rented a bike and toured around the moon hill/banyan tree area. Great bike ride but would not go if it was just to see moon hill and banyan tree. Mud caves were fantastic.

Beautiful! We went late afternoon after Silver Cave, no one was there. I heard most tour groups go in the morning and can get crowded.

This is a steep, short hike that is well worth the effort. There is an entrance fee that is not too expensive. The hike climbs on a well maintained path that sometimes is made of cement (for the rainy season, no doubt). There are rest stations along the way with benches. It took us about 25 minutes (we are pretty... More

Moon Hill is a huge archway in the karst peaks around Yangshuo. Forests grow on top and down the sides, incongruously. We cycled to get a distant view from the road in Yangshuo. One can climb up to it and appreciate it even more, but I expect it's an hour of two of heavy sweating!

It makes an easy outing for weekenders. Take a riding trip to the mountain foot and climb up to the top, which takes less than an hour. Wouldn't recommend for raining days for the stone can be loosen and path can be muddy.

If you just want to see the "moon" in Moonhill, the best view is from the village across the road and it's free, Entry to Moonhill is required only if you wish to climb up the hill.

Well worth the view once you've scaled the steps up the hill. Only 1km in total but not so easy due to the humidity.

Good to have gone up and down. It took us 55 minutes to walk up, take a look n photo then come down again. Beware: you need to be fairly fit as going up can puff you out a bit. Down is just a dangerous with the poor footing of the path. The path could use some TLC as its... More
