Beloved by the population of Shanghai and Hangzhou, the bamboo forests of Mogan Shan are a just a few hours, and a world away from the sweltering big city heat.

It's still hot for sure, but the winding  paths, lush, green slopes and cool, leafy breezes make for a perfect summer escape. Its bamboo clad slopes have been a favorite summer getaway for the wealthy Chinese elite and foreign colonials since the early 19th century and these days, it continues to draw city-dwellers looking for some much needed weekend fresh air.
