Nothing to see. Just a touch with a hole. Should be on the very end of your what to do list in the area.

You can walk across the street and look at the moon hill from a distance. The 15RMB is not worth it I think.

Beautiful view. Must take a moment to enjoy with a smile in your heart, you will not forget it. Lots to see on the way.

The area is in the countryside and easily accessible and the climb is not too challenging but definitely not handicap accessible. I enjoyed the views from above and it is a fairly unique feature.

It is a nice place, but dont expect nothing extraordinary. They have a nice place to eat, with both chinese and kinda western food, for a resonable price. If you have some spare time, make sure to go, but dont take it as a Must...More

I really enjoyed view from Moon hill. The hike itself is easy, around less than 1000 steps, but take lots of water if you hike in summer. There are mostly stairs but hike goes via forest so there is enough shade and places to have...More

The climb up to the top of Moon Hill was a real struggle but then I'm not all that fit. The path is all paved but when we visited was quite slippery with dropped leaves following a rain storm in the morning; in some places...More

Quite hard way up the hill. Do not stop at the end of stairs under the arc. Continue going up by the path through bush until you reach the real top of the hill. Stunning views there

It is an interesting sight but driving by was good enough for me. Look at the picture in TripAdvisor and you have seen it.

This was only made special because we went off the beaten path towards the top and managed to get to the very top of the mountain. If going make sure you follow the sign which says "do not enter" to reach the best view.

Hi I am wondering about the bike ride to Moon Hill. We will be biking to Fuji bridge in the morning and then to Moon Hill. I am trying to get a sense for the difficulty. How hilly and far is it? Thanks.

A nice bike ride- easy enough if you go at your own pace and stop to soak up the views and culture. The walk up Moon Hill is okay - plenty of places to stop for a breather. Take some water with you. The views are worth it
I see the mention of the refilled glass water bottles instead of plastic bottled water. My question is about the "safety?" of the water for travelers unaccustomed to the local water. Is this water commercially bottled?

I never saw a glass water bottle my entire trip, there are sealed plastic water bottles everywhere in china. I was in the country for 2 weeks and had the local water in teas and coffees and it is safe. I wouldn't drink river... More
