After early pickup from your downtown Chengdu hotel, travel to Mount Qingcheng by private, air-conditioned vehicle with your guide.

One of China’s most important Taoism centers, this densely forested mountain featured in 2016's Kung Fu Panda 3 and inspired its makers to create the movie's idyllic-looking Panda Village.

On arrival, ride a electric kart to the entrance and set off to explore the highlights of temples, pavilions, and other attractions. Trek up to the Moon City Lake and ride a cable car to Shangqing Palace, Qingsheng’s must-see building.

Perched at 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) and dating from the Jin Dynasty (265 AD-420 AD), this elaborate complex was rebuilt in the 1800s and consists of serene temples and an ancient gingko tree.

Hike further to see the enchanting Laojun Pavilion, and if the weather permits, admire the spectacular views from here over the city of Dujiangyan far below.

After descending by foot and cable car, and having lunch at a local restaurant, travel to the Qinyan Pavilion, where a viewing platform commands panoramic views of the Dujiangyan irrigation project.

Take in the scale of the system — the world’s oldest and only surviving non-dam irrigation facility — and learn how this 3rd-century BC marvel still channels waters from the River Minjiang to the surrounding farmlands.

Then, continue to the Erwang Temple (Two Kings Temple), a grandiose wooden complex on the banks of the Minjiang built to honor the irrigation system’s designers.

From here, walk across the Anlan Suspension Bridge to view two of Dujiangyan’s best-known sections — Fish Mouth Weir and Bottle-Neck Channel.

See how his fish-mouth-shaped levee and channel funnel the river waters, and then stroll through Lidui Park and beautiful bonsai gardens before returning to Chengdu. Your tour then ends back at the starting point.

Our guide, Lucy, was very knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Lucy was very flexible with the itinerary and customised it according to our requests. Lucy also shared with us many tips and popular eateries we can consider in Chengdu. Separately, the booking process was simple and Lily, the sales representative was responsive and informative. Highly recommend! Suitable for all types of travellers, family with elderly, family with young children, couple or even solo.

This was a great tour! Our guide Abby was very knowledgeable and was an amazing guide. We enjoyed the beautiful hike easy up Mount Qingcheng to the Taoist Temple. There were so many beautiful photo opportunities and Abby allowed us to move at our own pace. The Dujiangyan irrigation system was also another beautiful site. This was a FULL day tour with lunch- which was very good as well. Abby and Lily handled all the transportation and ticket arrangements so all we had to do was to sit back and relax and take in the wonderful sites.

First, my compliments to a very professional, knowledgeable and attentive guide Mia. The Dujiangyan Irrigation project truly shows the intellect and engineering abilities of the builders. If the stunning visuals are not enough, the scope of the project should impress anyone. A photography buffs delight. Sadly, only limited physically challenged access assistance available. The initial impression of the Mt. Qingcheng park is just as impressive as the visit. However, physically challenged access is limited to the base portion of the park and anyone who wants to visit the top needs to have great walking shoes, be willing to do some climbing, and have lots of energy for a lengthy effort.

This was a great introduction to the outer reaches of Chengdu! Cassie was a really wonderful tour guide and Fish provided good driving service as we drove out to Mount Quingcheng and Dujiangyan. Cassie and Fish kindly postponed my departure time, since I'd just flown in from California the night before, but I recommend sticking with the early departure time. We ended up stuck in both morning 1.5 hours and evening 2.5 hours rush hour traffic which was quite bad and I'm from San Francisco so I know bad traffic!. Besides the traffic, the tour agenda was just right. Seeing the World Heritage sites was fascinating, and Cassie provided a running commentary that was both informative and entertaining. The extra transportation at Mt. Qingcheng electric cart, boat, and aerial lift was helpful to someone experiencing jet lag and feeling the effects of elevation. We stopped at a very good neighborhood restaurant for lunch, and I got to see the kitchen and some of the cooking! Be prepared to eat with chopsticks! Then we toured the Dujiangyan irrigation system which is an amazing engineering and construction project still functioning since 200BC! We didn't have time to drive to the top most viewing spot, but walked all around the project area near the river level. I'll go to the overhead viewing spot if I ever go back, but the diorama set up in the Qinyan Pavilion gave a good overview of how the project was designed, as long as Cassie was there to translate the signs! I recommend this excursion for those that want to get out of downtown Chengdu and see some of the countryside.
