Description

Find out about the Dujiangyan irrigation system during a private tour of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Take a walk on Mount Qingcheng and be amazed by the monuments you discover along the way!

Go on a private one-day excursion to Mount Qingcheng and Dujiangyan and immerse yourself in Chinese history and culture!

A shuttle bus will pick you up from your hotel to take you to the Dujiangyan irrigation system, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

You will then be able to explore this irrigation system, which dates back to 256 BCE and is the oldest dam in the world. The Dujiangyan irrigation system was built to meet three objectives: flood control, irrigation of the Chengdu plain and to clear sand. Your guide will explain how this project was built, and how it still works today.

After a lunch of local delicacies, you will be taken to the Mount Qingcheng Taoist temple. Board a cable car (option payable on the day), which will take you to see cultural artefacts and the historical sites perched high in the mountains. You will see the Jianfu Palace, the Shangqing Palace and the Tianshi cave, to name a few. Then, go back down the mountain on foot and take a look at several Taoist temples along the way.

The shuttle bus will then take you back to your hotel.
