First time hiking in Maluan Mountain Park

ShenZhen, China

Maluan Mountain Country Park is located in Pingshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. It borders Sanzhoutian Reservoir in Yantian District to the west, Kuiyong Town to the east, and Shenzhen East Golden Coast to the south. Most of the peaks in Maluan Mountain Country Park are below 500 meters above sea level and have the largest waterfall in Shenzhen. The itinerary for this trip is a total of nearly 12 kilometers.

At the same time, we also brought our Jier Solo Traveler Phone Tripod with the Magnetic attachment to try it out.

A great place for cycling

Most of the hiking trails are roads and are in good condition. Cars are not allowed to enter, giving cycling enthusiasts more space to play. While walking, you can see cyclists like this from time to time.

Maluan Mountain Waterfall

Maluan Mountain Waterfall is the largest waterfall in Shenzhen. Many people come here specifically for this waterfall. Although it is not spectacular, it is a good place to go for people who live in Shenzhen all year round.

Pets on the trail

Some people even took their little pets like this to the waterfall. It should be a “Ferret”.

A hidden trail

As we went deeper, we came to a fork in the road and chose a shaded path that was almost covered by vegetation. It is also one of the trails with a moderate length among the many trails. This trail leads to the Huangzhukeng Exit of Maluan Mountain. The dense vegetation in front of us is refreshing.

Rain and fog

As we approached the end of the trail, it started to rain and a thin fog appeared. We could see the pavilion on the towering mountain in the distance, which was quite spectacular.
