Mount Mogan (Chinese: 莫干山; pinyin: Mògàn Shān) is a mountain located in Deqing County, Zhejiang Province, China. It is sixty kilometers away from the city of Hangzhou and 200 km from Shanghai.
It is part of the Moganshan National Park and at its base is the small village of Moganshan.
Known for its cool temperatures during the scorching summers, it has long been the playground of the Shanghai elite in the past. Today, Moganshan mixes a country lifestyle with a mix of local inns and old villas built early in the 20th century. Foreigners living in Shanghai often flee the big city and its noise and smog on the weekends and escape into this peaceful landscape.
