Pantao Hill

If you don’t mind a bit of a workout, this is the best hill to climb within the town of Yangshuo. While you’ll need to be reasonably fit to go up, it’s stairs all the way: you won’t need to use your hands like you do at Green Lotus Peak. And the views from Pantao Hill are actually superior to those at from its rival.

Directions: To reach Pantao Hill, head behind the local market and find the trail. It does a curve and then leads you to the entrance.
