Probably better to do this one in Autumn. Summer is hot and humid. Avoid going on the weekends due to the crowds. Get a guide via your hotel concierge and have them book the trip and arrange the bullet trains. Bring a light backpack, reading material (for any waiting on the way back), hand-wipes or small bars of soap, and... More

If you are in Chengdu, there are about 5-6 special places within a day or two's reach. This is one. How much it means to you may depend on how much Taoism is important to you. This is good advice: It takes about an hour by train from the North Chengdu train station, and its nearly impossible for you to... More

We walked the back mountain at the end of May 2014 and it was fantastic. The paths are so well laid that I walked most of it bare foot. It is so scenic, constantly walking alongside some of the best waterfalls I have ever seen in my life. You can buy food off the local farmers/villagers along the path -... More

Qingchen Shan is an attractive forest covered peak about 65k from Chengdu. It includes well made stone paths, and Taoist temples provide colourful sights. A cable car provides a good way of shortening the climb if time is short – for example taking this enabled us to include both Qingchen Shan and Dujiangyan irrigation project in one day. I am... More

This is a beautiful park. Interesting. Panoramic. Waterfalls. Placid lakes. Strenuous uphill climbs. Cable cars. NOTE: there are two sides of Mount Qincheng....a front side and a back side. I visited the back side and have posted this same review for that attraction....but most people seem to read/post to this one. So I've copied it here for you information and... More

My family of 4 (couple in our mid 50s and 2 adult children) visited the ‘back mountain’ on 26 May. As advised by other reviewers, we booked our train tkts (to Qingchengshan station; cost 15 RMB per tkt) earlier (on arrival in Chengdu). The earliest time available for 26/5 was the 8.32 am train, with return tickets for 16.32 pm.... More

This is a beautiful park/temple in the forests of Chengdu. If you have a few hours, I highly recommend going beyond the usual short hike and cable car ride and actually hiking to the top of the mountain. Be warned, it is an exhaustive hike, made up entirely of stairs. However, the view from the top is absolutely worth the... More

The mountain is a nice walk through woodland to the temple at the top. On the way there are many smaller temples and pagodas to walk past. The scenery is good as the area is all woodland and mountainous. It's very easy to walk to the summit from the entrance. It'll take about 2 hours in total with some rest... More

Background: As part of our itinerary in a 3-week long circle tour of China, our tour group had a day trip to Mt. Qincheng while staying in Chengdu. Although 13 miles apart, Mt Qincheng and the Dujiangyan Irrigation System is considered as one UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site, though visited separately. PROS: About 48 miles NW of Chengdu, Mt Qincheng is... More
