Moon Hill, Yangshuo County

(3.3/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Ponder over Mother Nature's curious formations at Moon Hill, a 380 m (1,246 ft) limestone peak with a moon-shaped hole just underneath it. As you approach this karst arch--mounting 800 marble steps to reach it--the hole changes its shape from a nascent to half moon. Farther up on the top, take in a 360-degree view of Yangshuo some 8 km (5 mi) away, as well numerous craggy hills and rice fields. The area also features 14 rock climbing routes of various difficulties, and souvenirs and refreshments are sold on site. Cycling fans should check out the bike park at the foot of the hill.

  • It's a bit of a slog to the top but it is well worth the effort. The path can be very slippery so care should be taken especially on the decent.  more »
  • 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.  more »
  • On distance you see from a busy road the Moon Hill. To move up to climb by stairs you can go to the Moon Hill itself. Ticket for this is ca 15 Yuan. Over come you stand exactly under the Moon Hill. So really cut a beautiful picture of the whole is not. View was for me not really worth it to so many stairs. As far as I am concerned, not recommended and waste of time, money and effort.
