“Nice bamboo but lot's of garbage.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

The view on the top of this mountain is very good except for the many day's were the air pollution is very high, there is litter everywhere you go, people just leave there bottles on the floor even if there is a bin beside them. There used to be an amazing bamboo made park which had tons of obstacle courses and a huge slide. this used to be our favourite thing in the mountain but when we went to ask a staff member why it wasn't open, she said that all of the monkeys from a cage further up the mountain had escaped and were running around the mountain! not a good experience.

“City escape...”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

Bored with all this mass of people and noisy environment? understand. If you think u can escape from it... No way. This unique hill is a landmark, it is a short exercise to climb it on rather well maintained walkways. On top of is there is a neogothic church, closed, for renovation. Maybe. The view is nice. But ... Your are neither alone nor in a tranquile environment. And Chinese people still need to learn, that garbage belongs to... Right: the garbage can. If you have no car or want to avoid the risky ride with this money grabbing private taxis, u must be facing a long ride in metro line 9 and then wait, wait, wait for one of the public busses to take you from shensahn station to the hill.the thing is: you stand all the time. Also at your destination you hardly find a place to sit and rest... Well. I keep saying: take it as an exercise, and really enjoy the remarkable view. It is... Still a city escape, although the compounds and the apartment silos are coming closer and closer...

“Greenzone”
Reviewed 3 February 2013

Well, in Shanghai you are always happy to be in the greens, no? Here a nice forrest is an exception, in Europe we are used to it. A bit artificial for my taste, but green is green!

“Bamboo forest and cathedral”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

It is a lovely walk up Sheshan. Halfway up, you can detour through a quiet bamboo forest, along a boardwalk. The cathedral is beautiful and the view from the top spectacular. See below in the valley the villas of the rich and beautiful... ;-)

“Away from the hustle and bustle”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

Can be crowded and can be commercial, but get walking away from all that and just enjoy the quieter areas where no one else goes. Try also Tianma Hill, not far away.
