You can easily get out there to have lunch, do some hiking, visit the Basilica, and observatory then return by dinner. The hill is easy to walk around with not too many steep steps or hills. There are several refreshment stands selling food and drinks....More

Went recently on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Weather was great so walking around the area was pleasant. There are some inclined rock pathways and stairs, it wasn't so bad though. Saw lots of kids (and even people bringing baby strollers) to the scattered picnic/bench areas...More

A very special park with astronomy museum and an observatory, A Catholic Basilica high up on the hill and a bamboo forest worth taking a walk.

Visited during weekend and while there were fairly much people wouldn't say that it was too crowded & some of the pathways like the wooden plank way from West gate to the South gate was very quiet and offered forest views which are so rare...More

If you live in Shanghai, have a free weekend with nothing to do, and the weather is favourable, a brisk walk up Sheshan is a nice morning activity for you. An hour's drive from the city, I got to the North Entrance just before opening...More
