Hands up if you love yoga

These women do love yoga - even if it means going up the hill for it.

More than 50 yoga enthusiasts made their way to the renowned Moon Hill in the Guangxi autonomous region in China on Sunday to exercise in the great outdoors.

Moon Hill in Yangshuo county is so named for the huge semi-circular hole formed near its peak, which is what remains of what was once a limestone cave.

The geological formation is said to resemble the shape of different phases of the moon, depending on the angle one views it from.

The hill, which offers many rock-climbing routes, is a popular destination with both domestic and foreign tourists.
