Our tour guide took us to the top one morning. We were definitely dripping sweat in the 95% humidity, but it was a good hike, with view points along the way and a decent view up top. (We were more interested in the hiking than the potential views anyway.) We had a more difficult time descending - very slippery path... More

The mountain is certainly unusual and worth a visit though I think it's not necessary to pay the ticket price to hike to the top. If you're looking for a hike there are plenty of other mountains with better views to go to.

We were quite surprised that even though Yangshuo and the main attractions were overcrowded, the moon hill itself was not busy. It seems not many People want to walk up the hill, but prefer taking photos from the other side of the main street (where one sees the hole nicely for a photo!). Well we walked up all the steps,...

You can see the moon hill from the parking just after the ticket office. From the parking, the walk start then 800 steps. It's narrow and slippery but in flip-flop was ok. When you reach the top, some people try to sell you water, coke or beer (if you're thristy). The path go through the hole then continue to the... More

The view is nicer from below, but you understand that only once when you have been to the top. The view on the top could maybe be nice, but it is unfortunately overgrown and you can't see much because it hasn't been maintained and cleared. There is a view only on one side of the valley, but it is not... More

The view from the bottom is almost as good as the view from the top. This place is close to the caves, if you like caves.

I suppose it's a cool sight but like others mentioned it's not that amazing when you're up there. If you really want to do the climb get water beforehand and hike all the way up to the top. go left when you see the no passenger entry stone and climb for 15 mins. It's worth it. It was pretty slippery... More

The hill is known as moon hill due to the almost circular hole in the top of the mountain carved from erosion. There are 800 steps to the top, but it's not too strenuous if you pace yourself. Great views if the weather is clear.

This is a view that is more interesting to look at than look from the top. We climbed the 800 or so steps and it was a hard 20 to 30 minute climb. The view was fine. We wouldn't have missed anything by not doing it. The cycle to it through the little villages was more enjoyable.
