Ascent Trip ReportIt was my 18th urban peak in China (in the 11th Chinese city, in the 5th province so far in this trip). Actually I already hiked it six years ago, but don't remember it, only became certain about it because my GPS records indicate that. Well, many things have changed since then: bullet trains are now a norm, bicycles are back on the streets, and streets are a lot cleaner. Less people smoke these days and more Chinese are getting fat. It is a lot harder to book a hotel for foreigner than it used to be.
Besides the main road with the gate where you have to buy the entrance ticket, there are trails free of charge, I found it accidentally, because I hiked the trail first and returned via the gate. A nice urban park, but no more special than any other similar one, even the views are just OK.
