Mingyue Gorge
158 Reviews
Mingyue Gorge was formed by Jialing River breaking through the mountains. It can be called the throat of the ancient Sichuan Road. It forms the only passage connecting the north and the south. The terrain is terrain but it offers views of the breathtaking natural environment. The valley is full of strange peaks and stones in this particularly peculiar natural landscape. Mingyue Gorge was originally called Chaotian Gorge. Later, the literati of the Ming and Qing dynasties changed the name to Mingyue Gorge. Then it was dubbed as the “Transportation Museum of China”. When walking down the plank road of this scenic spot, it is fascinating to personally see the dangers posed by the ancient Sichuan Road mixed interestingly with the magnificent beauty of Jialing River.
