Moon Hill, Yangshuo County
Categories: Geologic Formations, Nature & Parks
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.

Not 100% sure the trek to the top carrying my toddler was worth the minor variation on the karst view, but a very good workout on both ascent and descent!
zeker te doen, veel trappen maar genoeg momentjes om even te rusten op je weg naar boven. bankjes, en complete zitjes (bankje + tafeltje) onderweg naar boven. Het uitzicht is erg mooi!!be sure to do, lots of stairs but enough moments to rest on your way to the top. benches, and complete seats (bench + table) on the way to the top. The view is very nice!!show original
We climbed this mid morning and given the forest cover, it wasn't too hot. Altogether not the ordeal that we had feared. Great views from the top.
