What people are saying:

Good attractions, the tour guide service needs to be improved. Qingcheng Mountain is relatively cool, went down to the mountain to eat jelly powder and steamed dumplings, taste good. Dujiangyan is a bit crowded in the summer season. Shanghai people can get free tickets by using their ID cards. It is shocking to see such a smart water project. The South Bridge at the gate of the scenic spot is also very characterized by its ancient and grandeur. A day trip to Qingcheng Mountain - Dujiangyan, set off at the Kuanzhai Alley East Square. We were a quarter of an hour late from Qingcheng Mountain and found that the tour guide and the car had disappeared. We only knew by phone that they had already left for Dujiangyan. Let us take a taxi to Dujiangyan to meet. I think the tour guide should check whether the number of people is ready before departure, it is understandable if other passengers are not willing to wait, but at least tell us what has already left (the tour guide counts the phone number of each family in advance), which is the most basic responsibility of the tour operator. It is not possible to leave tourists there without any notification, which is a bad review.

Additional Information


The Dujiangyan Irrigation System is located along the main branch of the Lancang River, west of Dujiangyan City. It was constructed in the Qin dynasty around 256 BC by Li Bing, Prefecture Chief of Shu County, and his son. It is one of the few ancient Chinese water conservancy projects that has remained preserved and intact. The project consists of three primary works—Yuzui Diverting Embankment, the Feishayan Spillway, and the Baopingkou Water Inlet, and two secondary works which include the Baizhangdi (the thousand-feet dam) and Renzidi (the y-shaped dam). They divide the Yongjiang River into an outer and an inner branch, the former of which is used to divert floods and the latter for irrigation. This has allowed the Western Sichuan plateau to become "the land of abundance" as we now know it.
