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.
