This is the best hike I have been on in Shenzhen and so running it again, has a mix of bouldering up a mountain stream, water falls, lovely scenery, mountain paths, great little village where we can hopefully stop for lunch, and an all round great (pretty long) hike. Finishing down on the beach for a beach beer if the weather is suitable. Maluan Mountain is not the most famous mountain in the Shenzhen area, even among the city's long-term residents. However, it is extremely popular among avid hikers because it's easy, safe, beautiful and varied with clear streams, lush woods, Chinese plum blossoms and one of the area's largest waterfalls.
Location: 9.30am Ma Luan Shan, Yan Tian district (马峦山, 盐田区) Meeting Point: Meet at Exit C of Grand Theater metro station, then take bus No.103 to Xiaomeisha, the starting point of the hike Estimated hiking time: 6 hours Difficulty level: middle
