Well worth the climb. Stone steps very slippery when wet. Surprisingly, was not crowded. Restaurant at the base is OK, not fabulous.

Moon Hill is a beautiful area to visit in Yangshuo. My friends and I cycled from a village close by. There is a safe place near the entrance where we could leave our bikes. We then walked up many, many stairs to reach the top! China as you know is very hot and humid and it is quite a long... More

Nice view when you eventually get up there, takes about 20-30 minutes of stairs to get to the top, so a nice workout. The place is not so well marked out by signs, but should cost 15rmb to enter. Don't fall for any other tricks our tours offered by chinese standing by the side of the road. You have to... More

Tough hike that I didn't .... so nothing to add. Maybe worth the hike, but under 38 degrees, no way!

A nice hike up the hill for only a few yuan. It is a bit steep but very do-able in a half hour or so. But why rush? The top of the hill is awesome and standing under the hole is great. The views are beautiful and the best part was meeting wonderful young Chinese women and hiking with them... More

The hike was quite difficult and I usually do not have much trouble with walks or stairs. The view is lovely although I did not stay up there for too long as it was not too fascinating. It was a good morning though and afterwards we walked to the hot spring and mud caves which is close by.

We kinda did it to ourselves to first cycle there and climb 800 steps in the heat but the view is definitely worth it. Don't be ashamed if you get sweaty the way up, everybody's sweaty.

We went to the Moon Hill on a hot summer day with our three small children. We bought the official tickets and took the official path. Local farmers will offer you to take you got the same place for a cheaper price. I believe they take other paths. In our case the hike up to the top took us about... More

Don't pay just to see this. it's not worth it. We saw it on the way to the Silver Caves, which were stunning by the way.

Yangshuo is very beautiful in general. I can't see why this would be worth a detour. It is better to just cruise between random rice paddies.
