NEW! A brand new, lovingly restored guesthouse. Take a look at www.moganshanhouse23.com NEW!

From a vantage point beside the heart of Moganshan Village, enjoy fresh coffee in the Moganshan Lodge’s snug and stylish bar or a cold drink on the terrace. The Lodge serves good breakfasts, simple lunches, and home-cooked western dinners to order. We can point you in the right direction for a hotel, a walk around the village or a hike through the hills. It is the perfect place to start a day on the mountain or relax at the end of one.

The Lodge also has games, an eclectic library, movies for rainy days, wireless Internet, and a wealth of information about the historic village, including practical help with hotel bookings and transport. It also happens to be the only place within miles that serves fresh coffee.

Moganshan is a cluster of European style villas, built in the early years of the last century, on a mountaintop 700 metres above the East China Plain. For more history, see here. Today it is resurrecting its reputation as the place to escape to from your hectic working life in Shanghai, Hangzhou and Suzhou, or even further afield in Greater China, especially in the hot summer months. Click here for information about how to get there.

To read more about Moganshan, and the story of how the Lodge started, you could do worse than get yourself a copy of “China Cuckoo. How I lost a fortune and found a life in China”. Available at good bookshops, online here, and of course at the Lodge, signed by the author if he is about.

NOTE: The Lodge now accepts payment by Unionpay cards. No international credit cards are accepted in Moganshan
