This is to highlight that the nearest train station is no longer the Du Jiang Yan station, they have newly open a new station which is just right at door step - Li Dui Gong Yuan station (离堆公园站).Du Jiang Yan has 3 significant sections - upper, mid and bottom, we took a small bus from bottom to upper stream, and walk back to the bottom stream. Unlike the usual concrete path, we chose to walk from the mountain side, which allows us to see the entire stream of river - this is really amazing, but your leg will be sore by then, a lot of tracking indeed, but it really worth it!I personally like the color of the water, mixed of blue and green, despite the misty weather, I still managed to catch a nice photo of the entire Du Jiang Yan.Don’t forget to have a walk at the old street when you leave the place, we pop by a small eating place and they do serve a very nice dishes (农家小炒).

From the bus to Xuanhua Gate Tower, Guanxian County, it gets off and walks through a commercial street, sees Yuleishan Archway, enters the scenic spot and climbs Yulei on the right step. Mountains, the end of the step is a transverse slate mountain road. Turn right and go up to Yuleige Pavilion. The Pavilion overlooks Dujiangyan. After going back to Yuleige Pavilion, we can walk along Shibanshan Road, reach Yuleiguan Pass with dangerous terrain and overlook the water conservancy project of Dujiangyan. Minjiang River water is divided into inner, outer and inner rivers, which flow along Yuleishan Mountain. Manual stone cutting is used to divert water channel. Sediment is discharged from flying sand weir by using water flow cycles, and flows into Baopingkou, which skillfully captures the design of Tiangong. Along Songmao Ancient Road, down to Erwang Temple, this temple was built in memory of Li Bing and his son Erlang, the hero of water control. After leaving the temple, he crossed the suspension bridge and looked at the Minjiang River near Yuzui not far away. From the fish mouth to the flying sand weir, walking on the Jingang dyke, looking at the scenery on the other side, listening to the sound of the waves, looking down, overlooking, close-up, finally so close to the feeling of this millennium water project, thousands of years ago, the ancients, understand the water, comply with the water, obey the water, eventually the unity of heaven and man. All the way forward, through the flying sand weir, to Fulongguan, clear river water into the mouth of Baopingkou, from here into the plain of Western Sichuan, is nourishing, irrigation, water resources and all things without contention, but also benefit one side. Walking out of the scenic spot from Lidui Park, you can see Nanqiao at the gate of the park. The night scene here is very beautiful. Four hours'journey ended the water worship journey in Dujiangyan.

Standing on the Qinyan Tower, we can overlook the whole view of Dujiangyan, such as Yuzui Dike, flying sand weir, leaving pile, Yuleiguan Pass, Songmao Anlan Cable Bridge. While listening to the tour guide's explanation, we sigh at its magnificent momentum and the wisdom of the ancients. Anlan Cable Bridge: One of the five famous ancient bridges in China, 320 meters in length, bamboo cable bridge: wooden deck, two sides are supporting, in memory of Mr. and Mrs. He Xiande, also known as "husband and wife bridge".
