All reviews cable car day trip nice hike mini buses fast train walk up return ticket beautiful scenery bullet train steep climb scenic area the high speed train bus station small lake worth the effort taoist temple worth the trip
I've been there 3 times but still love it, if you are a runner and normally run 10km like me, then you can finish see all the sightseeing here in a day... otherwise book a hotel in it and spend 2 or 3 days and...More
Went to the front of Qing Chen Mountain plus Dujiangyan in DIY day trip from Chengdu.
No tour guide needed as here is how I did it:
1) Take subway in Chengdu to Xipu station; Reaches Xipu at 7:30am before morning crowd started.
Mt. Qingcheng exceeded all expectations. The mountain nature is just gorgeous -- it is clear to see where the fabulous ink paintings of Qing Dynasty got their inspiration -- with a beautiful lake in the middle. This is seen as the birthplace of Taoism and...More
It's a LONG way up the mountain to the Taoist temple at the top, but worth the effort if you are fit and healthy. Lots of steps, mostly stone, that are uneven, not especially level, and can be slippery. But if you make it all...More
If you are planning to visit Qingcheng I recommend the back mountains starting in the village of Tai-An.
It's a round trip of about 4 to 5 hours with about 600 hight meters. We spent 7 hours for the tour including breaks and time for...More
By car it takes about 90 minutes from the city to get to!
Be prepared for a lot of walking, but the scenery is beautiful and very green plants and trees along the pathways to the top! Mount Qingcheng is considered the home of Taoism...More

You will only need the ticket referance number and maybe your passport to collect the ticket from the station. I got the train from...More

Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The... More
Either is good, in different ways, and both are well connected by day shuttles. Personally I like Qingcheng better, more to see and the nature is a plus, for they boast great unique air quality, which I can testify to. The hike through stone-steps in QIngcheng is much more extensive but also much easier than usual due to the high concentration of negative oxygen ions. It is still an exercise with a few miles of uphill walking. There is a stretch with an option of cable car, which was out of service when I was there! It is still worthwhile for me though.
