About Qionglai

Qionglai is located in the middle of Sichuan Province, to the southwest of the Chengdu Plain. It is the hometown of the female literati Zhuo Wenjun of the Western Han. The classical Chinese love story "Feng Qiu Huang" (about Zhuo Wenjun and Sima Xiangru) took place here. There are many cultural relics and historic sites in the area. There is the Shifang Tang Qiong Kiln (a National Key Cultural Relic Protection Unit) and also provincial cultural relic protection units such as the Wejun Well, the Wayao Guyi Relics, the Stone Pagoda Temple, the Shisun Mountain cliff carvings and the Huilan Pagoda. This place also has the Helin Temple—a Buddhist holy place in Western Sichuan—as well as Zhuxi Lake, the Wenjun Well, the Western Sichuan Green Pearl Provincial Level Scenic Tourism Area and the National Forest Park Tiantai Mountain.

Popular Attractions in Qionglai

Tiantai Mountain
4.2/5
822 Reviews
Mountain
Tiantai Mountain is located 110km from Chengdu in Qionglai. This is the original habitat of the giant panda. The scenic area is full of dense primordial forests, bubbling streams, and gushing waterfalls. The Flower Stone Forest is a geological oddity made of gray conglomerate stone, which has been exposed to the elements and, over millions of years, worn away to create all sorts of fantastical shapes. Many visitors say it compares favorably with Yunnan's Stone Forest. Make sure to stay overnight and turn off your flashlights because the scenic area really comes alive at night with 17 native species of fireflies, located between 800 meters and 1,400 meters above sea level. Every year between April and October it's firefly watching time. Anywhere between Tiantai and Xiushui is a good place to set up and watch the natural show of lights.

Pingle Ancient Town
4.3/5
382 Reviews
Ancient Settlement
Pingle Ancient Town is located in southwestern Qionglai. It is among the most original and well-preserved folk villages in western Sichuan. The Baimo River runs through the town from west to east. Along the banks of the river are thousand-year old banyan trees, stilt houses, and small docks. The quaint cobblestone roads and shopfronts, as well as the numerous bridges spanning the Baimo River, are part of Pingle Town's ineffable charm. Many of the town's Ming- and Qing-era houses have not only survived but are in good condition as well. Along both sides of the riverbanks, there are numerous cafés and snack shops to tempt a tired tourist to sit for a while and take a break. No visit is complete without trying the local pheasant and the stone-milled soft tofu.

4.5/5
375 Reviews
Mountain

Spring is green, summer is summer, autumn is healthy, and winter is snow.
