You have your choice of multiple starting points, as well as either the larger or the smaller mountain. Small wutong 小梧桐 can take around 90+ minutes to hike up, but provides nice views of Luohu, Futian and distant Nanshan. Big wutong 大梧桐 can take a lot longer, and is much harder. I'd advise tackling the smaller of the two first,... More

This is definitely a thing that one wants to do when in Shenzhen. Prepare yourself for a lot of sweat and steps, but at the end it will be worth the effort. From the bottom of the mountain, reachable with a 30ish minute bus (number 211) from Luo Hu, it will take more than 3 hours to reach the top.... More

Coming from Singapore where the highest natural feature is a hill less than 200m tall any mountain counts as interesting. I tagged along a bunch of locals and inadvertently ended up on the challenging hike up the mountain where I encountered steep uphill portions without any trails or steps (hence the `diffucult but interesting'); the view from the top of...

The atmosphere on the climb is rather festive with lots of young enthusiastic Chinese, some in unusual hiking attire, scrambling up the mountain along side us. The frequently found food and drink vendors make it unnecessary to carry food and water. One of the preferred trail snacks is fresh cucumber costing 5 RMB and which the vendor will peel for... More

Shenzhen is a great city of 15 millions inhabitants, but it is surrounded by mountains and the Wutong Mountain where you can have a trek is the highest one. It difficult to do it, I did it by another starting point than the normal one and was very tired, but it is a cool experience. I am sharing this trek... More

Ok, so let's be clear since the beginning: if you are on a short trip to China, and come from a rather beautiful and natural environment (I come from South of France, think gorgeous beaches and sunny days), you are not going to be blown-away by Wutongshan. However, if you've been in China for a while, you will certainly enjoy... More

Make sure you are ready for this before you start, took us 5 hours and over 11km walking/hiking from the car and back with 1120 meters up to the top. There are many different ways to go but if you go to the top make sure you are ready. There are many vendors selling water and some snacks, but nothing... More
