We rode down from Yangshuo town on bikes we rented from our hostel ($3.50/bike/day) to Moon Hill. After buying a 5 Yuan water from an old lady (so our bikes wouldn't get stolen), we started up. 30 min later we're standing on top of the hill (very top) and had the place to ourselves, 360 degree views. Definitely worth doing.

We were visiting Yangshuo during a low tourist time. So, maybe it was sort of slim pickings for the older local lady who would not take No Thanks for an answer. Which was too bad because it was uncomfortable for her to follow us all the way up the mountain. Every. single. step. Trying to sell us water, etc. Apart... More

Good view from the car park but best views from the summit.Local guide told us that President Nixon stopped his car here and walked to the top on his visit to China.I find this story unlikely.

I enjoyed the hike up to the crescent. Took some wonderful photos of the scenery at the top despite the day being cloudy and drizzly. Beware though I did slip on my way down and I am used to hiking. The stone steps are quite slimy.

Moon hill was not on our must visit list in Yangshuo but we stopped there to take some pictures as it was on our tour schedule.Guess the sun rays go through the hole at some time during the day.The view up there must be awesome.

I just had lunch down at the restaurant and got a photo with the Moon Hill in the background - not clear whether you can actually go up there or how!

It is just about 30 minutes climbing up the trail, easy one, you are then rewarded by this awesome view on top. Definitly worth it. At the top, follow the other little path to another great view...

Nothing fanciful. Just a hill with a Crescent in between. Never try the trail up the mountains but the surrounding area is picturesque.

It was all I thought it would be. A cheap 14rmb admission. Not crowded the day I went in March. Great views.

The climb is steep but there will be sellers offering you drinks or even to fan you to keep cool on your climb. The reward at the top if the view, enjoy it and take plenty of photos
