Jindao Canyon Scenic area, Chongqing

(4.4/5 based on 80 reviews on the web)
Experience the natural landscape at its most rugged and awe-inspiring at Jindao Canyon Scenic area. The 10 km (62 mi) stretch of canyon, carved out by a vibrantly colored river, incorporates towering 100 m (328 ft) high cliffs populated by lush greenery and eerie caves. Two entrances lead to the hiking trail (one at the bottom and one at the top of the route); entering via the southern gate will mean you'll be hiking up stairs for the duration of the trip. Prepare for a rather precarious-looking boardwalk fixed to the cliffside, giving an aerial view of the gorge right underneath your feet. Look out for the caves en route, sequestering evocative formations and strange artifacts. Bring plenty of water and sturdy footwear for the hike. Put Jindao Canyon Scenic area into our Chongqing vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 山山水水非常的美,还有变形金刚4和满城尽带黄金甲的拍摄地,导游小姐介绍的很细致,瀑布那里的空气负氧离子很丰富,深呼吸几下感觉和不一样,总体来说很值得去  more »
  • Bit of an adventure getting here on your own but very very worth it. The canyon starts pretty wide at the beginning but soon gets narrower and narrower. Paths carved into the cliff face, through a tun...  more »
  • Via Tripadvisor we came also at Jindao. And it's really very beautiful. The walk starts at the top of the Gorge and runs through a long stone staircase down. Scenic views. You walk down a wooden walkway through the Gorge and along the River with waterfalls. Hilarious when we was at a "dangerous" piece all had to wear a helmet. Also do you still in a small boat on a Lake (at an additional cost, otherwise you must wrap a long way). In total, the walk about 10 km. you end up at the South side of the Gorge; so here is how to arrange transport. We had a private car which was waiting for us at the end point. Jindao: highly recommended
