Jindao Canyon Scenic area, Chongqing

4.4
#2 of 30 in Nature in Chongqing
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.

  • This choreographic construction of 11 floor perched beneath the skyscrapers of the city. With Temple and very realistic water fall you can take the elevator to get to the top, and then down the planes through tunnels and behind the waterfall. Nice
