I started at dawang entry gate. Took about 4 hours to climb up the pathway and 2 hours back on wutongshan road that exits at the North Gate. While at the north gate the gate employee lead me to the Bus 211 location which was 500 meters on road straight out of the North Gate. Bus 211 took me to... More

Two of us started this hike at about 9 in the morning on a Saturday. The hike itself is pretty interesting with some great views (weather pending) when the trees clear out from overhead for a minute. We took the trail on the way up, which is mostly stone steps. It follows Taishan Brook for a while, which can be... More

I went to the hike with my classmates, it was my first time. And I was not prepared to hike for hours, did not bring a bottle of water either. We were all sweating, but we made it to the top. I would suggest you wear a pair very comfortable shoes, pack some bottled water, and bring a lunch with... More

Hiked this with some coworkers and found this to be a fun, challenging hike. They have a fruit stand a little more than halfway up which helps. Also on the walk down (if you go the other side of the mountain down) you can stop at some buddhist temples which makes it for a great day!

Wutong Mountain is the toppest mountain in Shenzhen. Have hiked there about one year ago with several friends. We took 4 hours to go up and 3 hours down from the mountain. A litte tired but very relax and happy. When we went downhill, we met one old man wrapped sandbags on his feet, who hikes Wutong Mountain every day,... More

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
