These places in Chongqing could make you tremble in summer

Recently, when you take a look at friends' travel posts shared on wechat moments, they were all about playing with water, and those places are flooded with tourists!

 Are there some cool places with few visitors in Chongqing? Let's take a look!


Wulong Dadonghe Township 


The Dadonghe Township in Wulong, is not as famous as Xiannv Mountain, so it's not well-known by many. With an average elevation of 1080 meters and 85% forest coverage, it features  beautiful Dadonghe canyon scenery, and grand Jiwei Mountain sites.

 There is also the graceful Muyang Valley, and majestic Buddha Rock as well as the lush Daliangzi primeval forest. In the charming town of Dadonghe, rows of houses line up the streets, presenting the primeval style of Bayu natives. The small town lies in the depths of the mountain, providing a unique scene for tourists.

Route: Set the "Dadonghe Township" as navigation destination and go to Shuijiang along G65, then keep for driving along National Highway 411, arriving at Dadonghe in one hour.



Gujian Mountain in Qijiang District  


Gujian Mountain Region has an average altitude of 905 meters and a temperature of 25°C in summer. It's about an hour's drive from the urban area. The Region includes Gu'nan Street and Gujian Mountain, one AAAA level scenic spot and national geological park. Gujian Mountain scenic area covers an area of 86.67 suqare kilometers with more than 85% forest coverage, so it's called “Chongqing's green lung and natural oxygen bar”. 

With a lower temperature of 20 degree centigrades in summer, it's an ideal place to avoid summer heat. Since ancient times, Gujian Mountain was called "the miniature Emei"(小峨眉). Ancient trees provides dense shade; lush bamboo along the riverbanks flourishes pleasantly.
