One of my favorite areas in Shanghai!

It’s alright. But I don’t think it’s a great path to work out

难度很低,但风景漂亮。推荐亲子

Обычная простая гора, прекрасно подойдёт для прогулок с детьми

Data is wrong!

very beautiful trip. You just follow the river and the view of the pillars are amaizing. And you can see a lot of monkeys.

I took the Tsushima Brook trail up and came down the Brave man steps, and I’m glad I did! The route is almost entirely stone steps up or down until the overlook area, which is a huge plaza. I took the road down.

Very Beautiful Park

Went on a camping trip with Beijing hikers. Highly recommend as the whole trip was excellent start to finish.

This was a very informative and beautiful experience. It has heavy traffic in areas but opened up on to eating, drinks and craft sales along the way. Learned a lot about Taoism there the guild.

An easy walk alongside water and greenery. Public transportation (buses) are available along the perimeter of the lake (not on causeways) if you don't want to walk the entire loop. Some portions of the walkway are narrow and crowded. Kite flying and tai chi are popular in the more spacious areas.

Nice weekend getaway from Shanghai. There are 5 waterfalls & pools along the route, the statue at the top of the mountain, and a reservoir at the end. Trail is paved or stone the whole way, with many steep steps

Qingcheng is actually a very heavily trafficked climb up a wide footpath that has manmade stairs. It is a moderate climb that takes you past Daoist and Buddhist shrines and temples. It is one of China's sacred Daoist mountains so it is worth the climb just in light of that, but it is DEFINITELY not for those seeking the solitude and beauty of a virgin forest mountain hike. It is a protected park that will cost you 110 RMB just to enter. Does not mean a person should not go. It is a valued site for its Daoist history. Just be aware, this no backcountry "hike"

Fun city walk. Lots of shops, food, and people. Not a quiet garden.

Magnifique!

Beautiful walk around Changhu! Did this hike with two groups of students--ages 8-18. All of them loved it and did very well throughout the walk.

For a hike in the city more or less it was fantastic. It was snowing the whole time I was there so there were very few people and we felt like it was a different place all together because of that. Very easy hike but nice to get out of the throng.

A hard uphill climb with steps in the park that inspired the scenery for the movie 'Avatar'.

Really fun climb, but very tough in the heat, take lots of water! Also the map here says the route is 10km but the route I take is more like 16km. I think thats because whoever made the map took the cable car half way up.

Interesting historic church on the hill and certainly worth a look. A relatively easy hike to the top but very crowded on the weekends. Views over Songjiang district are hampered by pollution. Visit the Observatory on the hill...gives an insight into how the Chinese contributed to astromomy and the information is in English. Well worth a visit

I had a free morning, while in Minhang District of Shanghai. Rather than wait around in my hotel for my colleagues to pick me up for afternoon meetings, I decided to find someplace with a bit of green. The area of Minhang where this trail network is located, is truly an unsightly, urban area of soulless light industrial complexes and streets full of heavy traffic. I found this green zone by looking at local maps. It was a considerable walk in the sweltering humidity of this Shanghai summer morning, but it was well worth the effort.

At first, I was truly amazed that I had been frequently visiting Minhang for a decade, and had never heard of this wetland area. But then some locals explained to me that it was a new nature development area that has not been open very long. In any case, the water flowers in the lake gardens are AWESOME! They were impossibly beautiful! The trails surrounding the lake are also topnotch. They are spotless, with full-time caretakers managing them. There is a nice balance between lakeside paths, wooden walkways, and forest paths that meander through lush forests and across streams and bridges.

There is an interesting network of trails that weave through this lovely green area, so that one could spend the better part of an afternoon walking them. I would guess that there are probably 3 miles or so of linear trails in the network. Although this is probably not a destination for a serious hiker looking for intercourse with primal nature, it is certainly a nice walk for anyone in the area, and worth a visit.

I clocked 7.9 miles on my pedometer roundtrip to my hotel, and dripping wet with sweat and humidity by the time I got back. I smiled for the rest of the day, and kept thinking about the beautiful flowers during my boring afternoon meetings.

I was visiting Beijing for work, and decided to take some friends to visit the Great Wall. Badaling is almost always filled with tourists, so we went to Mutianyu. Our visit was timed for the finish of three days of solid rain. The sky was incredibly clear, impossibly clear for those who are familiar with the typical pollution levels in north China. We went early in the morning, so there were very few people. We had an outstanding hike along the wall, and I must confess, the steep stairs utterly tortured my legs. I am standing in the airport as I write this review, and days later, my thighs and calves are still stiff. This is a great place to visit, if you are in north China, and a great place for a hike in China.

I have hiked Mutianyu a few times over the years, and it never gets boring.
