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

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

Be prepared for quite an uphill walk with variety of step sizes. Worth the trip to top and beautiful views and temple. Shops and food stops along the way.

Hope this can help those who are planning to go there independently (ie not with the tour). We took metro to Xipu and train to Qingchengshan station (CNY10). From the station exit to your left and take bus 101 (CNY2) to the scenic area entrance....More

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

Each site is a day trip in its own as they both entail a considerable amount of walking and by the end of the day you would be exhausted.
