Moon Hill, Yangshuo County

3.2
#2 of 19 in Parks in Yangshuo County
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.

    A mountain with a hole in it, there's not much more to say. View from café Moon Hill is fine. From there you can also climb the mountain and to the hole, but that we have seen the heat not done. Nice to view of the mountain and the café, not more.
