Green view well worth the effort

Biked here from town and had enough energy to tackle the many steps (in very warm and humid weather). Very rewarding views, very glad we climbed up here. Give it a try if nearby.

We stopped to see this mountain. It was good to see it because its famous in Yangshuo, but I didn't find anything super special about it. There are much nicer places and attractions which should be seen in Yangshuo.

After a short hike up the Moonhill mountain, you get a good view of the unique hole in the mountain. A great spot for rock climbing, photography and the simple pleasure of watching the sunset.

We only did the touristy stop at the village below Moon Hill. They have a platform where you can take a tourist photo of you holding up the hole etc. It may be fun to hike up the mountain but other than the big hole representing a full moon, there is nothing special about the hill. The village is a... More

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
