Dujiangyan is a testament to Chinese ingenuity in providing a solution to control floods since it was constructed in 236 BC, more than 2,000 years ago. It is the oldest and only surviving no-dam irrigation system in the world which is still functioning today. Dujiangyan...More

More than 2000 years old irrigation system. Its build based on the original hand made works not high tech, really impressive. I can't imagine the brilliant ancestor's ideas and how they did this. Sure worth the visit. Tour guide is recommended for better knowledge.
