We took the scooter to Moon Hill. It costs RMB14 per person for the entrance fee. Once you get to Moon Hill it's about (they say) 800 steps steep climb. The climb itself is not... read more

One of the best view you can find for sunset nearby yangshuo. When you he end of the stairs, after the hole on the right you have a normal view point, but if you turn left and ignore the indication do not enter, you can reach the top of the mountain for an incredible view

Entrance fee is rmb 14 each. It takes about 35 minutes to climb the flight of rock stairs and about 25 minutes to climb down. The day we went there was a shower so the ground is a bit slippery . There were stone benches along the way for travelers to rest. At the top of the hill, were a... More

I climbed up Moon Hill as part of a school trip and since we went in the middle of the day we were very grateful for the shade of all the trees on the sweaty way up! However by Yangshuo's standards the view is not so breathtaking, since we could see a lot of building sites, though of course there... More

Moon hill is a typical Chinese climb, mainly stone steps through some pleasant surroundings. It does take some effort and you are rewarded at the top with some quite good views. The Moon itself is as you see in the picture, not incredible but interesting. Some people mountain climb the inside of it. If offered don't buy the tickets from... More

Ok as far as beauty goes there is no denying that Yangshuo's karsts fit the description. Their wonderful beauty is painted throughout the landscape like a fine painting. Moon Hill just happens to be one of these karsts where geologically something different happened. While it's nice it isn't much of a sight. Spend your time travelling to see other things... More

The hike was good and hard, not the hardest hike in yangshuo but tough nonetheless. The view was good but not that spectacular. Annoying sales ladies at the entrance and at the top. Probably better off just buying something to avoid them.
