Departure Time

8:00 AM
Get ready for morning hotel pickup in downtown Chengdu; the tour company will confirm exact time upon booking. Once your guide/driver arrives, climb into the private tour vehicle and head for the  Dujiangyan Irrigation System, roughly 1.5 hours away by road. 

Disembark at the UNESCO World Heritage site, where your guide will lead you on a private tour. Learn about the third-century BC Chinese science that made this eco-friendly engineering wonder possible. The system controls the flow of the Minjiang River and drains floodwater, provides water to more than 50 cities, and irrigates nearby farms. 

Finish exploring the area and take a break for lunch (own expense). Back in the tour vehicle, travel about 45 minutes further to Mount Qingcheng, the birthplace of Chinese Taoism. Also a UNESCO World Heritage site, this property is home to a collection of Taoist temples and lush forest. 

Departing Mount Qingcheng, relax in the vehicle for the ride back to Chengdu for drop-off.

From here, it's about 90 minutes drive to the UNESCO-listed Dujiangyan Irrigation System, a wonder in the history of Chinese science that dates back to the third century BC. Engineered to exploit natural features to control the Minjiang River, and the flow of water from the mountains to the plains throughout the year, it consists of three main sections: Yuzui, Feishayan, and Baopingkou. Even today it plays a crucial role in draining floodwater, irrigating farms, and providing water to more than 50 cities in Sichuan.

This was a nice tour - the Dujiangyan Irrigation System was a nice place to explore. Mount Qingcheng could totally be skipped. Our tour guide Bella was really nice and was great! She provided helpful explanations, took pictures for our group and also arranged a wonderful tasty lunch!. We definitely would do Dujiangyan Irrigation System again as the irrigation system was cool, the park was nice and it all was connected to an ancient city - which had lots of good food.
