Its a fairly steep but short 30 - 40 min hike up to the top of the mountain. The path is well maintained and there were a lot of people, so no chance of getting lost. It's a little precarious in places, but nothing extreme....More

One of the mountains to climb in the Yangshuo / xingping area. 1300 stairs and ladders on the way up. watch out when climbing or going down after it rains.

This was the best thing we did during our visit to Guilin/Yangshou areas. I opted to skip the Moon Hill and Silver Cave (as too touristy) and glad I did. The path starts adjacent to the boat docks in Xing Ping. It took close to...More
