Still controlling the waters of the Minjiang river after 2,200 years, Dujiangyan Irrigation System makes an impressive World Heritage Site at the foot of Mount Qingcheng, the birthplace of Taoism. Contemplate the feat of engineering as you cross the boardwalk suspension bridge over the roaring river, which supplies Chengdu's fertile farmlands. Climb the observation pagoda on the top of the hill for an overview of the waterworks, giving a sense of the ingenuity and sheer human labor involved in its creation. Afterwards, sample local cuisine and visit temples on the banks. Get a tour guide to explain all the details.

  • I love architecture and this irrigation system is definitely one of the kind. It is also nice to walk around this park.  more »
  • In ancient times, dam and made no threat, and now also used. Men of old times? wow. From Chengdu to Chinese tour participated, but not by car 1... You will arrive in about 5 hours. Train or bus is within walking distance.

  • Been here twice while visiting Chengdu. Always a nice time, good food, shopping and snacks all around. Ooooh there's an amazing vegetarian buffet place super close to here too.
  • Good place to visit load days how powerful irrigation system Develop. Beautiful place and good food to eat too
  • Must see attraction in western China. Dual language story boards. Even when busy it's still easy to get around. Many photo ops. Plenty of restrooms. Get there early due to tight parking.
  • One of the oldest irrigation system still working today. Great to see the hydraulic engineering accomplished by ancient Chinese people 2000 years ago.
  • 舉世聞名的水利工程,橫跨兩千餘年的古人智慧
