Something for most. Many come for hiking up the mountain. We came for a cooling down walk through the forest areas, and enough the plantlife.

It took us slightly more than 2 hours to climb the whole thing and catch views from all three peaks/pavilions. Definitely bear left when you have an option. Bypass the first set of stairs on the right, stay on the paved road until you see another set of stairs -- take those! Vendors along the way so you can get water, snacks if needed. LOTS of stairs ...up and down ... be prepared!

This a hike that can be done in under an hour if reasonably fit. With paved stairs lne side and paved road the other this is a typical SZ hike. Suitable for people of all ages and is quite busy at all times of the day.

There are great views available on a clear day, sadly these are not very frequent.

Regular rest stops along the way. Water and toilets at the top.

Can start at Seaworld or nearby Shekou Walmart. Also have a path from Chiwan too.

All in all one of the better hikes in city

There is a paved walkway up the mountain. Some areas have stairs. It is free entrance and a great place to get into nature. Lots of people visit on the weekends. It is very close to the Sea World metro stop. Exit D and walk towards Fraser Hotel. Keep walking past Fraser and you will see the entrance to the park on your left.

I was just staying at the bottom of the mountain and understimayed its height. Couldnt imagine the stairs all the way up to the top. However this is one of the best place for fresh air, good sunlight and spectecular view of Shenzhen. Walj around the different trail and you will see the different part of beautiful Shenzhen to Hong Kong. Do bring water and a little food to munch as you need that energy.

Dananshan, or the Nanshan Mountain is a weekend activity for many locals. Old people and kids do it too!

There are multiple entrances to this hike - you could take the stairs to start with or the road.

The stairs entrance is the Villa entrance and the Custom Office entrance. The villa entrance is slightly gentler with lots of resting spots, the custom office entrance has the worst set of continuous big stairs if you are looking for a killer workout. There is also the Beihai entrance which is all road.

There are two big pavilions and one smaller pavilion for the lookout. The smaller pavilion is reached more quickly from the Custom office entry point. This offers the best night time view of Shenzhen looking over Nanshan and Futian.

Depending on the time and energy you have, you can just do 1 pavilion or all 3.

Just the one pavilion from the villa entrance takes about 45 mins up and about 30-40 mins down (if you can climb down faster)
If you are doing all 3, with breaks it will come to about 2.5-3 hours of total effort.

There are vendors selling water and some small snacks at all 3 pavilions. There are some toilets as well.
Get your proper hiking shoes on even though I have seen locals do this hike in rubber slippers even :)

I love this super accessible mountain - great start to the weekend.

We chose to start from the side of the stairs and come down by the road. The steps were quite steep but it wasn’t too much. It was only few local people here besides us on the day we went. Go here on a sunny day to see the beautiful view. Bring water because the first place that sells water comes with only after a lot of climbing/walking. Not quite sure if they even accept cash.

This is a good hike, with great views and fresh air. Be careful not to slip, though, since some of the paths are steep.

I live in Shekou, Shenzhen, so it is only a brisk 10 minute walk to the entrance of Nanshan park. It is all uphill to the top of Nan shan (mountain). unlike in Beijing or Shanghai you are not bombarded with "muzak" from hidden speakers, and although you meet plenty of walkers and joggers, it is a good place to stretch the legs, dogs should be kept on a lead but I consider it is OK if they are not running wild and walk to heel when there are people or dogs approaching. But there are plenty of small parks where dogs can run free. It is also a good place to find passerines and other migrant birds passing through, along with the impressive resident bird list. I like the place because of its accessibility and that it has not been turned into a theme park which is usually the beginning of the end for me.
