Nice day trip from Chengdu. Do not waste your money on a private tour the long distance bus is cheaper and it is easy to find your way around

There was a serious safety issue at the site. So many people were on the bridge and some teenagers tried to make the bridge swinging. The shuttle service was horrible too. We waited a long time to get on the shuttle, by the same time,...More

Incredible piece of engineering taking into consideration that Europa at that time didnt even have running water. The irrigation system is still operative, a brilliant piece of engineering. Architecture of the buildings around it bring you back in time, Highly advisable to visit

This impressive engineering project from over 2000 years ago offers interesting knowledge and beautiful views. There is a stage show once a day, starting from 10am. Worth watching. There are two suspension bridges, and a temple on the steep mountain. Worth hiring a guide for...More

This is a remarkable place that speaks of ingenuity, perseverance and great engineering, some hundreds of years ago. The irrigation system itself is set within a park. It’s a big area to cover, so if you can’t walk that much, or don’t have lost of...More
