We were driven a far way out of Yangshou by our driver and guide. Given the whole story about Moonhill so were looking forward to our destination. we drove into a village that I could imagine during tourist season it is humming but this day it was quiet and 90% closed. There was a funeral taking place and since the... More

I rode a bicycle out to Moon Hill (which was a pleasant ride). The entry fee was 15rmb and there is a spot to park your bike inside beyond the ticket booth, which seemed like a secure area. The hike up consists of a bunch of stone stairs and it took me about 30 minutes to get to the "Moon".... More

We cycled here from our hostel near West Street. We'd hired a bike for 10rmb each and it took about 25-30mins to get there. It was 15rmb to enter Moon Hill. The walk up is pretty steep but only took 20mins, and we had some decent views from underneath the so-called moon. If you want the best views then take... More

Hire a bike and ride there if you can, It was very humid that day so we were completely drenched with perspiration by the time we got to the top but it was worth it, the views are amazing and you can go right to the moon hole in the mountain which is what you can see in the distance... More

After an intense walk/ hike of 30-40 minutes you achieve the top of moonhill. Pretty view of area around. Nice old ladies offer drinks and postcards for 10 Yuan, entrance fee about 15 Yuan. Have fun!

We walked to Moon Hill from Aishanmen Village, a decent little jaunt in itself. The climb up the hill is long but not challenging (unless you don't do stairs much). However, lots of rain can make it a bit slippery, so be aware of that. The surrounding countryside is as beautiful as you'd expect—the only bummer for us was that... More

Cycled from west street, a good ride because it's a really flat ride and with great views on the way. The hill looks really cool from the bottom! Hiked up when we got there which took around 20-30 minutes, you get to the point where you can stand inside the moon shape. We then went back down a different way.... More

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...
