6 recommended self-driving attractions around Chongqing

I would like to go on a self-driving trip around Chongqing. What other places around Chongqing are worth visiting? Let me list some popular attractions in Chongqing for you.

Wansheng Dream Ordovician Theme Park

This is the gathering place for China's top "high-altitude thrill experiences". Currently, there are 8 major high-altitude experience projects open, including cliff swings, glass suspension bridges, and cloud walkways. This place has also recently become popular on social media, and many friends who have been there have said it is incredibly thrilling and makes them question life.

Cloud Walk "Yunyang Longgang Geological Park"

The Longgang Tiankeng is a deep, 335-meter sinkhole formed by steep cliffs with a tilt angle of nearly 90 degrees, making it a rare sight in the world. It is known as the "Number One Tank in the World". The "Cloud Bridge" built on a kilometer-high cliff in the scenic area is shaped like a "sky flower" and offers a 720-degree panoramic view of the stunning scenery, making it a major highlight. In addition, the cliffside hand-holding plank road is also thrilling. Compared to popular scenic areas like Wulong, Longgang Tiankeng has fewer tourists, allowing visitors to relax and appreciate the beautiful scenery. The Cloud Bridge in the Longgang scenic area, located at the top of the love road cliff at an altitude of 1123 meters, has a projecting length of 26.68 meters, with a projecting part of 21.34 meters and a height of 718 meters above the ground. It is supported without steel structure and the bridge surface and guardrail are made of fully transparent ultra-white glass. Compared to the Ordovician period, the scenery here can be described as more majestic and spectacular, so why not go and experience it?

Natural oxygen bar "Heishan Valley"

Heishangu is currently the largest and most well-preserved natural ecological scenic area in the Chongqing area. It is known as the "Yugui Biogenetic Reserve" and is suitable for canyon hiking with beautiful scenery and good air quality. To encourage visitors, Heishangu offers significant ticket discounts for tour groups organized by travel agencies. Therefore, I suggest choosing a one-day tour activity, which not only saves transfer time but also enjoys cost savings. The route typically starts from the north gate of the scenic area and exits from the south gate, following the main trail all the way.

Beautiful and tranquil "Shenlong Gorge"

The vegetation on both sides of the Shenlong Gorge is lush and the scenery is magnificent, suitable for visiting all year round. The main attraction here is summer rafting, with clear mountain spring water and large waterfalls, making it very thrilling and exciting. Shenlong Gorge is a beautiful place with beautiful mountains and clear waters, especially cool in the hot summer season. It is an ideal destination for weekend outings and a popular choice for many friends to escape the summer heat.

World Heritage site "Wulong Karst National Geology Park"

Wulong Scenic Area has rare karst natural landscapes, including caves, sinkholes, rifts, canyons, peaks, and alpine meadows, with diverse forms. It was selected as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site in 2007, together with Libo in Guizhou and Stone Forest in Yunnan, under the name "Southern China Karst". The main tourist attractions include Tianlong Three Bridges, Fairy Mountain, and Furong Cave, which are suitable for visiting in all seasons.

Dazu Rock Carvings, a World Cultural Heritage site

Dazu Rock Carvings are religious cliffside stone carvings from the late Tang Dynasty and early Song Dynasty, mainly depicting Buddhist themes. They also include Confucian and Taoist statues. They are renowned art treasures and are known as the "Pearl of Eastern Art". Dazu Rock Carvings are listed as one of the world's eight great grottoes. The scenic area consists of five regions: Baodingshan, Beishan, Nanshan, Shizhuan Mountain, and Shimen Mountain. On December 1, 1999, the Dazu Rock Carvings were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, making it the first World Heritage site in Chongqing.
