See details here: https://rockandice.com/climbing-news/yangshuos-moon-hill-reopens-after-2-year-climbing-ban/?fbclid=IwAR0v2PSdJOpku32aYzR_xS6Bn-wrBMvAEOoybwq4qK2yw6qcELn7OY_4Wcc

Previous post: The administration has closed access to this crag due to the fear of rocks falling on tourists from climbing. Apparently this happened a year ago. It is uncertain if this crag will reopen, but the hike is still good.

There is a clear sign at the entrance of the moon hill hike that no climbing is permitted. Heavy fines apply if caught!

This closure may change, but best to double check with local Chinese climbers at the bars Rock Abond and Rusty Bolt.

Description

Moon Hill is considered one of China's premier crags and one of Yangshuo’s tourist attractions. This impressive moon shape karst formation has an elevation of approximately 380 meters offering spectacular views of the surrounding area. The routes are predominantly overhanging requiring both power and endurance. The climbs are mostly in the shade all day and many remain dry during rain.

DO NOT GO AROUND THE GATE!!!

DO NOT TRY TO FIND A FREE ENTRANCE!!

If you don't want to pay, then do not go to Moon Hill!

Approach

Moon Hill is located in a tourist park (entry fee applies) and access to the crag is via 800 plus steps.
