Like some other travelers here, I had cycled to get to Moon Hill, and was a bit surprised to find just how steep the hike was up to the top. Chinese trails seem to have a tendency of featuring steps that go straight up the side of the mountain, rather than the twist-and-turn switchbacks that I'm used to back in... More

Awesome walk - it took us 20 minutes to climb to the arch and saw rock climbers - beautiful scenery along the way

We rode bikes or 18 kilometres and climbed the 800 steps to enjoy a hazy view of the surroundings. This is not crucial to view but one can get a a good photo without climbing the steps.

I found it difficult to get to and see Moon Hill. It also was too hot to walk to the top of the hill. You can see it better from the street and from the top of a restaurant nearby. Unless it is good weather and you're up for a strenuous hike, I wouldn't bother going.

We were going around with a car, running everywhere to get the chance (for our tourist guide) to see all in a short time (bad ideas...take you time and enjoy the landscape with less rush). This was the last sport to see...but actually there is nothing to see. It's just a hole in a mountain that look like a flat... More

Not crowded at all. Free parking. Nice little hike (20 minutes) and beautiful scenery on top. Quiet and good for nature lovers.

The hike was a little more than expected especially after cycling here from Yangshuo but it was well worth it. Walk on a little too to the look out point for a great view of the arch way. Would love to come back and climb here one day, looks intense!

It took me around 25 mins to walk to the top and I was not disappointed. It was a clear day and the views were spectacular. At the entrance/exit there were ladies selling cold drinks and I managed to get small discount.
