Hiking

Located in the intersection between Taihe Town and Liangtian Town of Baiyun District, Maofeng Mountain is about 25 kilometers away from downtown Guangzhou. The highest peak reaches as high as 534.9 meters, 152. 9 meters higher than Mount Davis, the highest peak of Baiyun Mountain. Placid at its bottom but steep at its top, the main peak is shaped like a bamboo hat and therefore is called "Maofeng Mountain" (Maofeng literally means hat top).

The forest park is part of an expansive hilly region, which is home to some twenty peaks above sea levels. With steep hillsides, deep and serene gulches, the forest park seems misty and hazy. With a forest coverage of over 95%, the park is a natural habitat of great biological diversity. In addition, Maofeng Mountain boasts such main attractions as Causeway Bay Reservoir, Shatian Reservoir, roaring waterfalls, Maofeng Ancient Temple, Thousand-Year Ancient Path and revolution memorials.

The concentration of anion in Maofeng Mountain reaches 67,000 per square centimeters, making it the oxygen bar of Guangzhou. It is a prime destination for the white-collar workers who live a hectic life to relax themselves and alleviate their pressure.

Maofeng Mountain is also a good location for conducting outdoor development training. Outdoor development projects include: orienteering, field operations, rock climbing, prompt drop, beach landing, camping and site practice. In addition, tourists can hold bonfire parties, have barbecue and play billiards and Ping Pong.
