Moganshan National Park is a beautiful mountain area just north of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province. It became a popular retreat in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century for foreign expats living in Shanghai. They escaped the humid heat of the city for the cooler mountain air in Moganshan. Today it is a popular destination for weekend hikers and people seeking a day or two in the Chinese countryside.
