It used to be nice and quiet but some smart people managed to make it a nightmare. Now the local police blocks you from driving on top, just behind the barriers some unauthorized taxis bargain to drive you there, driving like crazy, honking every 2...More

Moganshan is about 4 hours by driving from Shanghai. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from the busyness of city life, you can consider this place. It is mountainous and scenic. There are hiking trails that you can take. Lodging...More

This small town is unknown to foreign tourist although many locals are flocking there by bus loads, especially students on day study trips. A great place for relaxation, hiking, chill out. Lush bamboo forests with stone villas built in the 1900s. This is the filming...More

Moganshan is a very nice area, pretty silent if you are taking the old ways, nobody is going. It's a little of a hike to get through the small paths sometimes but very enjoyable and a good weekend escape from shanghai! Worth a visit!

Beautiful bamboo forest. Be prepared for some exercise hiking the area. Enjoyed the trip very much. Recommend to wake up early ~4am for early sunrise photo shoot, which I regretfully missed.

Hi there I wondered if anyone could tell me how I can get to Mogan Mountain from here? Is there places to stay in, like hostels, near the mountain or is it best to stay in Hangzhou? Really appreciate any help as just had a train to Guilin cancelled with weather and looking for a place to go.

I checked some travel notes and some suggest the best way is to drive there. Hotels on Mogan Mountain are easy to find on tripadvisor, but not that cost effective because generally it might be more expensive compared with the hotels in urban area.
