Moon Hill stands besides Fenglou Village in Yangshuo’s Gaotian Township. The hill is more than 380m high with a big hole on the top of the mountain which looks like a moon, high and bright, and that is why people call it Moon Peak or Moon Hill.
Seeing from different angle of the Moon Hill, the shape of the hole will change. If you travel by bus, you will see the hole changing from crescent to half moon, full moon, and then waning moon, so amazing. Tourists can also climb up to the big hole through a 800 steps road.
