It's a pretty vertical, unforgiving climb, with oddly sized steps. But it is worth it for the view at the top. There will be ladies with drinks, selling a bottle of water for 10cny each, so bring the drink with you, a lot of it. You will need it.

The round hole in the hill is fun, though not quite as exciting as the locals seem to find it. For one of the best views in Guilin Province, follow the path to the left beyond the viewing platform, which is a bit over-grown and muddy but completely safe and takes you to the top of the hill (above the...

My dad and I hiked up to Moon Hill in November when it was a bit rainy, and found it empty and peaceful, very unlike Chinese tourist destinations. We only encountered 2-3 other groups of people. The view was beautiful and the hike is short but nice. It's worth it to go around all the other paths to see moon... More

It takes about 20 minutes hike up, and 15 down again (800 + steps) but the effort is well worth it. Views are really nice.

It takes about half an hour to hike up but the effort is well worth it. There in fact two vantage points, don't miss the second one, a bit higher up.

Nice hike with a huge pay-off at the top. Great views. If you're not in good shape, you may struggle a bit, but you can do it, just go slow. You'll find a local woman who's in her 70's at the top selling water and cols atec that she lugs up to the top every day! Rock climbers will like... More

Moon Hill is great place to check out the Yangshuo aerial view(when the air is clear). This hike is a easy to moderate hike that takes you up marble steps to the overlook under the arch. The entry fee is worth it(bit pricey). You will have three overlook aerial views of the landscape. Though not a advised by a posted... More

Biking to the moon hill from yangshuo is adventure itself with avoiding all the trucks etc. Its bit pricey (40 RMB) but enables you to see amazing view. Its a one hour climb - dont forget to supply yourself with enough water for this steep climb. It definetly provides amazing views, I guess if you are professional in rock climbing... More
