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.
