Excellent place to visit mid-week and in the off-season

As with all natural sites with China, avoid going during Golden week and other holiday periods... read more

As with all natural sites with China, avoid going during Golden week and other holiday periods where it will be inundated with people and ruin the experience. Outside the holiday periods this location is not very busy (especially not in the autumn/winter period) but is...More

Bit of an adventure getting here on your own but very very worth it. The canyon starts pretty wide at the beginning but soon gets narrower and narrower. Paths carved into the cliff face, through a tunnel at one point, and on a small boat...More

Nice and easy walking along the walkway to enjoy scenes of Gorges and lakes and breath fresh air of Bamboo forest. A short boat ride with Chinese song background made me feel like I was in the Chinese drama series. Nice place to go.

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

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...More

The best one day tour while in Chongqing is to the Jindaoxia (Jindao Canyon Scenic Area) which is approximately 81 km or 2 hours travel time from the Holiday Inn Chongqing North. Most information on China Travel websites is sketchy when it comes to organising...More

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...More

We heard the locals singing to each other - they were on a different sides of the river so it was their way of communicating to each other. It made it a very pleasant experience indeed.
