Lost in Moganshan

A few weeks ago, I was invited by the travel agency Thomas Cook to take part in a trip to Moganshan with a few other bloggers. As soon as it comes to traveling, I’m in! Let me tell you about it…
Our meeting point was at the Shanghai bus station on Saturday morning. Time for everyone to find the bus among the dozens of buses lined up, we were ready to leave. Four hours later, we finally arrived:

We discovered our nice and cosy room.

Most of the rooms have access to the huge terrace. The hotel is build in the middle of the mountain and offers a great view on the bamboo forest.

After a well-deserved lunch – the bus opened our appetite! – we all went for a walk around the lovely Solvang village.

Bamboos were drying on the side of the road.

Like the veggies on the fence.

Here, everyone has his garden to plant veggies.

Some ducks were hanging out near to the river.

Spring is in the air. The Canola flower add some nice yellow touch colour in the landscape.

All the trees beside the road are blooming.

After half an hour of walking, we reached the water reservoir. The blue colour is gorgeous. We were surrounded by bamboos.

In the next morning, just before breakfast, I decided to go explore the hotel which has many nice little corners.

There was a big stair at the back of the building. I took my camera and started to go up.

The stair ended at the entrance of a bamboo forest. There was a little path among the bamboo trees.
So much nice shade of green! I couldn’t resist and took many pictures jumping on the rocks. Everything seemed to be organised and quiet.

The only sound I could hear was the little waterfall that ran from the top of the hill. I love that sound!

At 9:00 am, I went back to the hotel to have breakfast with the rest of the group before a last walk to reach a beautiful waterfall. We stayed there for a while to enjoy the scenery. Shanghai doesn’t offer the same beauty.

Time for a last group picture and we went back to the bus to go back to Shanghai. It was short but very pleasant. See you soon Moganshan!
