My husband and I needed some time away from city life and we found it here. The day was nice and cool, not too crowded in the morning. We hired a tour guide and a driver but you could take the train from Chengdu as the stop is right outside the gate. We didn't see any real options for eating... More

We bought the combo pkg (transportation+tickets to Dujianyan and Mount Qincheng). We spent 3-4 hours at Mt Qincheng which only let us have enough time to go to the lake, take the boat & cable car up to see one site then same way down. The right way to do is to take cable car up then walk down, you'll... More

The title says it all. Like it from behind. Mt Qingcheng has a front and back side. We took the back mountain and I say the road less taken is amazing. It was coincidently a national holiday as well, so there was a lot of people walking up the mountain. I am always fascinated when climbing up mountains in China.... More

A great place to stretch your legs. Take your time and enjoy the scenery, gardens and sites. It was pretty busy when we visited, but further up, it got better. Its the sort of place a knowledgeable guide would be valuable. A lot of the shrines are similar and knowing more about the purpose and meaning of each one would... More

The back side of Mount Qincheng, full of suprise, many restaurants, small inn, recration places, if you have time, summer would be wonderful time to spend here days to weeks. Clean, no bad smell at all. Suggest you drive to here, even better.

After spending a couple days in the city, this was a nice change. My wife and I walked up the backside of the mountain which was a path that went alongside a river and many, many beautiful waterfalls. Lots of picture moments. Also there are locals that sell good food throughout the trail so you don't have to carry much... More

(Real name is Qingchen (shan) mountain) If you are prepared with the usual Chinese commerce and loudness of such places then you will enjoy it. If you aren't a fan of these things in a nature/religious environment then try to stay on the smaller paths as much as possible. Once you have paid the entry fee to access the mountain... More

Brilliant! take your time and don't go in a rush so you can enjoy the walk and the views. You don't need a guide for this, but if you don't like walking there is option to take a boat, then a gondola, and then some people offer their services of carrying you to the top (all for an extra cost)

The Mount Qincheng is a scenic spot that you have to see. It´s about 1,5 hours outside the city Chengdu. Its very green and idyllic, good for a nice picnic with the family and friends.

This is excellent. It is a lot of walking up and down stairs, but it is well worth it if you are in decent shape. I went on a cool day, and didn't find it to be uncomfortably hot, but it was VERY humid. The mountain is covered with monasteries, so keep that in mind when deciding on clothes. It... More
