Bit of a distance out of town and the views weren't that great due to haze. Wasnt a highlight for me, after a great bamboo raft trip and hiking between villages on previous days.

This was a great walk, with lots of stairs!! The kids counted them on the way, and there were just on 800 stairs. We had great weather for February. I think it could be quite hot in the summer time? Bring some water with you!! Not far away, on the opposite side of the main road, is a lovely restaurant... More

The view at the top and the formation itself is quite spectacular. It's very steep though so be prepared for a work out. Buy water at the bottom because it's more than twice the price if you buy it at the top. An easy bicycle ride out there and the banyan tree and plenty of caves etc on the way... More

Easy climb plus there is a slightly harder one all the way onto the top which gives an even better view.

Read other reviews regarding the views, I am going to take about moon hill lady. After a 30 minute climb we were greeted at the top by a very nice Chinese woman selling cool beverages. I bought a beer and my son started small talk. She carries a small book where people write messages to her in all different languages.... More

Well, it's a rock with a hole in it. We hired a tuck-tuck uncle to take us for a ride, and he stopped at this local attraction. Near the base there is a gravel parking lot where coaches of tourists spill out and take a photo. There's a strange, vaguely maintained plastic dinosaur/monster playground thing that seems out of place.... More

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
