One afternoon in Yangshuo a group of us rented bikes and set out to visit Moon Hill. It was a beautiful bike ride through the countryside. Although I don't remember exactly how long it took, I think it was less than an hour each way.

As soon as we got there we locked up the bikes to begin our ascent up the steep hill. On a very hot and humid day it was surprisingly tough. If you get thirsty or hot you find some very old but extremely fit women who will sell you a drink, or even follow you with a fan. This hike is nothing to them and I can only dream of being as limber as them ever!!

If you are an expert rock climber this would be an awesome place to go as the routes have points where you are completely parallel to the floor! We would have loved to see someone complete it, but there were no brave people that day. If you do want to try climbing here or anywhere in the millions of routes in and around Yangshuo just meet up with a school in town and they will take care of all the details for you.

Yangshuo is a beautiful place, and if you have someone who can guide you to all the best spots (like Mulan) you will love your experience as well.
