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.

  • Truly amazing work of engineering, especially when considering when it was all designed and built. Definitely one of the prime example of intelligence and innovation shown by the ancient Chinese civilisation.
  • 看起来很平常的景观,但想到其起作用了上千年,不禁感叹古人的智慧。
  • 如果去感受古人的智慧,值得去,如果是纯欣赏游玩,去青城山吧,别浪费那钱!
  • 还不错,感受一下几千年的水利工程
  • 五星!了解历史!
