Shuilian Moutain Park

Shuilian Mountain Park is located in the Southern part of Dongguan City, more than 10 kilometers from the downtown area. This park owns forests of 6,000 mu, the main hill of which is 378 meters altitude. Compared with nearby mountains, Shuilian Mountain appears more picturesque due to the abundant water, in which "Pengtong Waterfall" was one of the eight sceneries in Dongguan in the Ming Dynasty.

Shuilian Mountain has a profound history and culture. You can see ancient temples of the Song and Ming Dynasty here as well as the former military base of Dongjiang Battalion during Anti-Japanese War. Long ago Penggong, a Chinese ancient saint, cultivated himself in Taoist methods here and intellectuals left lots of complimentary poems here. Chen Lian, the deputy director of the Board of the Etiquett Rites of the Ming Dynasty and a native of Qiaotou of Houjie, called it the "Little Penglai outside the city". This mountain provides a nice place for enjoying leisure and fashion, appreciating beauty and elegance, relishing both history and present as well as doing sports for numerous citizens.
