GZ government did a great job for developing Baiyun Mountain as a recreational center for the 9th biggest city in the world in terms of population (13 million – Wikipedia count). For a minimal fee of 5CNY you have the access to a well-maintained mountain park. It has clean toilets with running water all-over the area, food kiosks, McDonald’s Restaurant, and a cable car facility.
Families, lovers, senior citizens, and fitness enthusiasts can be seen strolling around the area – rain or shine. I love that GZ government encourages its citizen to exercise and there are many reminders to live a healthy lifestyle around the park. Truly, health is wealth and Baiyun Mountain is the quickest getaway from the hassle of city life.
Visiting Baiyun Mountain is a healthier and cheaper alternative than strolling in malls. I spent around 90 minutes walking from base to top and back. It was an amazing experience and hopefully next time I can visit again with my wife. I am thankful that God created this beautiful natural wonder and let me experienced the joy of exploring it.
