At 15¥, it is simultaneously one of the cheapest and most genuine natural experiences you can have in Yangshuo. No neon green lights or people trying to sell you souvenirs; just you, dense bamboo, and the mosquitoes on a 20-minute climb that thoroughly drenches you in humidity and sweat (and rain in my case). There's also fewer people, and as... More

Just outside of Yangshuo, a less visited (for once) tourist area. A steep climb of 800 steps up to a great view of the moon shaped hole in the mountain and surrounding landscaped. It was made all the better for us with a view of two rock climbers attempting the incredibly hard climb around the moon shape. One of the... More

Go there by bike, but take enough time because you will maybe stop during the way to take pictures, buy water or rest for a while. When you are there ignore whoever is approaching you with wors like "ticket" and go straight to ticket counter (entrance very cheap: 15 CNY).

Moon hill gives you a very beautiful view and it is especially good if you go on the little path (there is a sign saying not to go but ignore it), where you can go all the way to the top!

We rented bikes and after cca. 10 km arrived to the bottom of the hill. The hike started after we paid the entrance fee ( like everywhere in China :-() Few hundred steps and we were awarded with amazing views on China carst fenomena. The big arch in the mountain is interesting but even more interesting are old ladies selling... More

Quite a strenuous 40 minute climb but well worth it. At the top you see the surrounding mountains in all their glory. Didn't see the litter and overgrowth that others have reported.

Was delighted at first sight after riding our bikes into the area. Did the steps, not a problem, but on a really hot day just not worth it for the views alone. The moon shape was obscured by vegetation and people had climbed up and were sitting in it, so not even any great photos after all of our effort.... More

Great up to Moon Hill. We were saddened by the litter along the paths and that tourists didn't respect the environment. The aggressiveness of the women selling sodas at the top of the hill put a damper on the accomplishment of the climb and detracting from being able to enjoy the beauty of the scenery

Disappointed at view of moon shape, obscured by vegetation which I thought should have been trimmed considering the work put into steps. View of town below pretty good, but on a hot day a long climb.
