About 4-hours outside Chongqing. Beautiful rock cliffs. Water running through. It is crowded (as is everything) but well worth the trip. It was great to get out of the city and see some of China's natural beauty

Saw this on Trip Advisor and had a Sunday with nothing to do. I as well as my two Colleagues were blown away. I've been traveling to China and this was hands down one of the coolest things I've done there. I went in February and there was practically no one, I hear it's really busy during the summer. You...

We really wanted to experience beautiful nature when being in the region, and going to the canyon turned out to be perfect. The difficulties in using internet made car rental difficult - probably worth doing that before coming to China - so we ended up using the hotels car service.

Beautiful! Most go if living or traveling through Chongqing. It is pretty harsh drive going up the mountain with drivers racing around the sharp curves. But it's worth it. Takes several hours to do the main hike/ walk though. Try and stay at a local family hotel.
