At this moment we sit on the top, and it is just spectacular. Climb is indeed not very easy, bring enough water. Go just past the tower on the top for the best view!! We doubted about doing that, but actually it was quite easy,...More

The stairs to the top are very steep. the chinese waste no time making switchbacks! the views were excellent. a fair bit of trash along the trailside was a disappointment but not unexpected based on our experiences.

Steep climbing but what a reward! I went late in the afternoon for sunset views and had it all just for myself. Just wish people would take their garbage home though...

Great view up at the top. As other reviewers say, I definitely suggest climbing up to the antenna to the full view. The hike should take you somewhere between 25-35 min at a moderate pace. Bring a flashlight if you go to see the sunset,...More

After a 30-35 minute climb up a sometimes challenging and steep set of stairs (plus a ladder), we arrived at the pavilion at the top. What a breath taking view of the valley/river below. The climb is well worth the reward of the amazing vista....More

From This Old Place Hostel in Xingping you need to walk towards the water a little bit and then walk through a white circular archway to the left, from there just follow the signs up to the top. It takes about 30mins and gets rather...More

It's a toughish climb but worth every breath. The views over the Lijiang (River Li) and the surrounding Karst mountains are breathtaking. You look across to the area of mountains depicted on the 20 rmb note. Many people go for the sunset, but as the...More

A tall hill in Xing Ping village, between Guilin and Yangshuo. After climbing around 900 (!) steps, you reach the top. From here you can see magnificent views of the Li river, with the cute, green, peaky hills all over the area. Simply beautiful. Tips:...More

Pity about the pylon on the top but didn't distract from the view. Scramble over the rocks past it and look out from there and you'll get nearly a 360 degree view. The climb up is a bit sketchy at times but that adds to...More
