    Hi,i've got some information for your reference.
    You can visit Yushan (Yu Hill--about 300m height) in Changshu City, Juangsu Prov.
    It took me around 80 minutes driving from Shanghai.
    You can pay a vist to Yanzi (506 B.C-443 B.C)Tomb on the foot of the hill. Or serach the other two old tomb on the hill.

    If you just want to make you free from the high rise building dominated Shanghai and get yourself a nice spring out, you can hike to the hill top. That might cost you about 2 hours. On the top of the hill, you can get nice view or fengjing.

    If you have visited some old water town around Shanghai, Yushan might be a place you could visit.

    Some links for your reference(Chinese website, but pictures could be your reference.)

    Yanzi Tome baike.baidu.com/view/609758....

    P.S. Welcome to China.
