We took the cable car up. The open cable car is fun, nice views. The walk down from mid way through the gorge is lovely, really beautiful views. Highly recommended.

The 'back mountain' at QingCheng is less accessible and less well organised in terms of trails and signposting than the front mountain, but is still really worth visiting. It is a big area to hike and there are two cable cars. It is more about nature and the scenery than the front mountain. Tai'An Ancient Town at the base of... More

maybe most beautiful scenery in china. must visit for people wanting to connect to old taoism. beautiful intact pure nature. but even here, some garbage along the hiking paths, which is terrible, government should clean this up... forest and birds and views are top-notch. take the front and back mountain for day tours. sit by streams and soak up nature...

Wonderful hike down. We were able to see many beautiful sights, and it was not too crowded. With the stream beside us and the lush trees and bushes it felt like we were in a tropical jungle.

Amazing scenery, best is to take a cable car up the mountain, and hike to the white cloud temple and the whole way down, especially the plank walk offers many possibilities for great pictures. The place is not as crowded as the front mountain, the road to Taian can be a little bit packed during weekends, definitely do not go... More

A manageable trek though there were some quite steep sections Recommend ascending via 五龙沟 then descending via 飞泉沟 as the latter is much steeper. We only had time to climb to the middle of the mountain (又一村) where we had lunch. Food is not great and expensive. There are many huts along the way where local snacks like sausages, corn,... More

This is a beautiful park. Interesting. Panoramic. Waterfalls. Placid lakes. Strenuous uphill climbs. Cable cars. You can see the back of Qingcheng Mountain and the Dujiangyan Irrigation System in one day. We did it. But, I don't recommend doing it the way we did...here's the story with some interesting tid bits thrown in for your amusement. We started in Chengdu.... More

The back peak is less crowded compare to the main side of the mountain. You can enjoy the tranquility of nature. There are tea plantations by the Chinese Dao temple. They also offer delicious food, especially the cold dishes are wonderful.
