Footpaths meander the rolling hills covered with bamboo forests. Visit viewpoints, including the top of Moganshan Mountain and a waterfall in the rainy season, and wander through lots of serene forests. Alternatively, you can explore the area on a mountain bike rented from the hotel, or by paddling in a boat on one of the nearby reservoirs. If you are here simply to enjoy some peace and quiet, sit up on your hotel roof top with a good book, or in the cosy lounge with a drink. Regardless, Moganshan Solvang Village is the perfect place to catch your breath from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai, either as a couple or a family.


The crisp, clean air of Moganshan, or Mount Mogan, has charmed foreigners and locals alike looking to relax, hike and enjoy the scenic beauty for more than a century. The last decade has seen the area buzzing with exploding popularity. Amid the vast choice of lodgings in Moganshan, from basic guesthouses to luxurious 5-star hotels, family-and-pet-friendly Moganshan Solvang Village is a homely, informal mid-range hotel with double and family rooms, all equipped with bathtubs. It is run by warm and helpful English-speaking staff . The entire construction is done with local stone and timber using the traditional Sun Mao joining technique, where wooden columns and beams are individually shaped to form perfect joints, without nails. Sun Mao is a dying craft and its beauty lies in its simplicity. Solvang Village’s surrounding bamboo forests create the perfect tranquil backdrop for some serious relaxation.

Getting There 

By public transportation, it takes two hours by train from Hongqiao train station to Deqing station, where, if arranged beforehand with the hotel, a driver will wait to take you to Solvang Village. The drive takes about 50 minutes.

Eat and Drink 

Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner with a range of Chinese and Western dishes made using local organic ingredients, including stone-oven pizzas. Cocktails, a decent wine list and a number of local and imported beers complete the delectable menu.
