Moon Hill

moon-hill01 Moon Hill, located eight kilometers (five miles) south of the town of Yangshuo, is another well-known attraction in Yangshuo.

moon-hillThere is a hole in its peak through which the sky can be seen like a full moon, hence the name. A flight of more than 800 steps winds its way up to the top of the hill. This is called 'Appreciating Moon Path' since a traveler walking along the winding path can see the sky through the hole from different angles, appearing as a full, half or crescent moon depending on the angle. The surrounding rural scenery is also very charming.

The Moon Hill, 8 kilometres from Yangshuo, is also known as the Bright Moon Peak, as there is a 50-metre wide tunnel on the top of the hill that looks like a bright moon when the night falls. Walking on the Admiring the Moon Path, you can see the moon appearing like a crescent, or full moon, according to where you stand. After climbing about 800 marble steps, you will arrive at the Moon Cave in which there hang stalactites of various shapes, Some are like Buddhas warrior attendants, some are like jade rabbits; and some are like the goddess of the moon, creating the scene of the moon palace in Chinese legends. When you look around, you get the whole view of the surrounding area, the mountains, rivers, fields, and peasant houses, all of which make it quite a panoramic picture.
