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.

  • It was a bit raining, but we did have a great time there. Require to walk a lot but you have choice to chose shuttle bus, of course we pay extra 
  • Only 1 hour away from Chengdu by train and bus, and a perfect destination for a day trip. The body of the dam system and the turquoise water is beautiful, but what really makes the trip the fed is all the scenic spots and small temples in the mountains behind, as well as the small, cozy streets with local goods. We do not regret one second trip out there.

  • 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!
