Wutong Shan Mountain, Shenzhen, Trail, Hike, Photo, Guide

Detailed info: http://www.everytrail.com/guide/wutong-mountain-from-wutong-village

Overview: With its peak at 944 meters above sea level, Wutong Mountain (梧桐山)is the highest mountain in Shenzhen. Standing on the mountainside of Brave Man Slope, you can survey Hong Kong, Dapeng Bay, Yantian Port and Shatoujiao, where you are surrounded with the unrestrained and far-ranging seas and green mountain ranges.

Because it is located close to the Shenzhen downtown area, Wutong has become the first choice of local hike. There are many routes up to the Wutong mountain. Here is the west trail which starts in Wudong Village.

Route 1: Taishan brook (泰山涧)route: This route goes along side with Taishan brook. The trail is paved with stone steps. There are clear signs on all the junctions. The signs also list the distance to the peak and the current elevation. The last part of the trail is rather step. Because the dense forest that covers the trail, this is a recommended trail in the hot and humid summer.

Route 2: This is the easiest route among all. Park ranger can drive up to Brave Man Sloop (好汉坡) which is 1,000 meters away from the peak. Visitors can walk the wide and paved road. The last kilometer is paved with stone steps and offers excellent view of the sea, Luo Hu district and Hongkong in the distance.

Note: both routes start from Wutong Shan Village (梧桐山村)

Difficulty: Moderate
Length: 7.1 miles / 11.4 km
Duration: Half day/5-6 hours round trip
Family Friendly

Tips: The round trip takes 5-6 hours. The Route 2 can be used at night without a flash light. If you start late, you can use route 2 to get down the mountain.

Transportation:
By Bus: Taking No. 211 bus from downtown Luo Hu (罗湖), you can reach the Wutong Mountain Village (梧桐山村), which is the terminal station of the bus. Walking through the village, you will find the gate of Wutong Mountain park.
By Car: The Parking lot at Wudong Shan Village is next to the Park entrance.
