This is a great escape from the city and absolutely worth to see. The hike is not too exhausting while there is also an option to take a cable car for the middle section. On the foot of the mountain, there is the Six Senses...More
Qingcheng Mountain is not for the unfit - there is a lot of walking uphill & downhill to do. The steps are uneven and often narrow; and when it's wet, they can get slippery. We took the ferry boat across the lake & the cable...More
Mount Qingcheng is beautiful and the temples and caves scattered throughout its many, many kilometres of steps are interesting to see.
Getting to the site is easy enough with the high speed train from Xipu - just don’t assume that if you show up in...More
Do not waste your money on a guided tour it is something you can do yourself even if you do not speak Chinese. The guided English tour companies are a complete rip off! The front Mountain is a little on the busy side and costs...More
Self arranged trip using high speed rail:
645pm qingchenshan > xipu
When you reach the station, follow the locals and they will walk to shuttle buses where you can go to the front or back mountain (25 yuan 2 way tix)
We spent time in Beijing and Chengdu, and Mount Qincheng was definitely the highlight of our trip. It was recommended to us by Lily of WestChinaGo, and we are so glad we decided to visit. It is definitely a climb and takes a few hours,...More
Hope this can help those who are planning to go there independently (ie not with the tour).

Very nice day-trip from Chengdu.
The back mountain has many waterfalls and scenic areas. It is also less crowded compared to the front mountain. The best time to visit is after summer (after rainy season), because the river will have more water and everything will...More
Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The... More
Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The hike through stone-steps in QIngcheng is much more extensive but also much easier than usual due to the high concentration of negative oxygen ions. It is still an exercise with a few miles of uphill walking. There is a stretch with an option of cable car, which was out of service when I was there! It is still worthwhile for me though.
