I have been up this mountain 3 times so far, last time was last Saturday. My advice is to go early to beat the heat and the crowds. I start hiking at 7am (or earlier) and take the gully trail. Nice stream with waterfalls and trees to shade the pathway going up. Be sure to like stairs!! Takes about 2... More

An amazing mountain hiking place, that I truly recommend to any foreign or local visitors to Shenzhen. Once you leave the entrance gate, you will find greenery and clean air, tough gradients, well-kept facilities including fruit and drink vendors, viewpoints, rubbish bins at regular intervals. Toilets are of a local standard, but at least they are available at each main... More

This mountain was a bit tougher than I expected. It took me and my friend 3 hours to hike up and about 3 hours to hike down. We took a couple breaks along the way too. The road path was okay, we took that one on the way up. The alternate paths were okay but nothing too exciting, just trees... More

Take the hiking trail, not the road. Follow signs for the Teishen Gully trail from Wutong Village entrance. This trail pass near water falls to reach the Wutong and the shadows of trees is good on hot summer days. See the guide on every trail for "Wutong Mountain from Wutong Village" and take the "route 1" described.

You have two options for this hike. One is to take the road, but you miss all the cool stuff except for the view at the top (non-existent if cloudy) - we took the road hiking down today and it was extremely boring. It's also exposed and hot during these sunny summer days. The second option is to actually hike... More

Wutong Mountain is the highest mountain in Shenzhen. It's on the eastern side of this large city. It can be reached by subway/bus combination, or by taxi. At about 3000 feet, it's not particularly high, but it affords a nice view of the city on a relatively clear day. It's about a 3-4 hour hike up and 2-3 hours down.... More

This thing was a witch to climb- think I read a review on here that the last 25% is the most difficult and it's true. We got caught in a downpour about 200 m from the top and I thought I was gonna die. Seriously, I would write your will first.

Tired of the hustle and bustle of Shenzhen and the Guandong area? Tired of the factories, the people, the pollution? Need some excercise? This just what you need. I took a taxi from Futian in Shenzhen to Wutong Mountain - ~80 RMB. The driver didn't know where to go but asked a few people in the area and finally arrived... More

We recently spent a lovely Saturday hiking big and little Wutong Mountain near Shenzhen China. It was fine weather day, although our views of Shenzhen were clouded by pollution haze, and there were many others climbing the mountain. The atmosphere on the climb is rather festive with lots of young enthusiastic Chinese, some in unusual hiking attire, scrambling up the... More

I climbed Wutong along the road rather than the hiking path. I think the hiking path would be the best way to do it but I only had a morning and the road is quicker. There are some OK views of Shenzhen, that is if you like looking at Shenzhen anyway. The bad thing about the road is it's very... More
