Mount Qingcheng is must-see of everybody who is visiting Chengdu. The footpath will take you all around the mountain from one temple to another. Save breath don't start to fast.

Great to spend time outside Chengdu in this site. You’ll need a solid 3 hours to reach the top (maybe a bit less if you use the buggy - which does take off the first kilometer walk and about 20-30 rmb per person). The cable...More
