This tour was outstanding. Most people go to Chengdu for the pandas, which of course are must-see, but this tour got us out of the city into the nearby mountain areas. What a nice change of pace to get out of the city and into the countryside and farmland.
Lillian, our guide, spoke excellent English. She notified the hotel she was coming and picked us up in the lobby. Our driver was friendly, car was clean and comfortable with strong a/c. Lillian and driver provided so much information cultural and historical about the beautiful area.
The irrigation system is awesome! Quite an engineering feat from over 2000 years ago. So strong the 2007 earthquake didn't damage it. You can walk or ride the tram. Cross the river on a suspension bridge to see the Dao temple and choose to climb the surrounding trails.
Lunch at a local restaurant was delicious and the beer was COLD!.
Qingcheng Mountain was lovely. We took a tram, then a short walk to a short boat ride to a gondola. Then started to climb. The climb was steep at times, mostly on stairs with several flat areas to stop and rest. There were several young Chinese women doing the trek in platform spike heels! Very few handrails but steps were never too narrow or close to drop-off to be uncomfortable or scary. To avoid the climb you could choose to be carried in a sling for a nominal fee. The view from the top was stunning!
Clean western toilets in both locations.
