Mount Qingcheng

Located to the southwest of Dujiangyan, Sichuan Province, Mount Qingcheng can claim to have some strong roots for China's Taoism (Daoism). It is a famous historical mountain and one of the nation's major scenic areas.

The mountain faces the Chengdu Plain, at the back sporting the Minjiang River, and stretches over an area of 200 square kilometers (20,000 hectares). It has 36 peaks, 8 large caves and 72 small caves. Its main peak, Laoxiao Peak, rises up to 1,260 meters. Many temples can be found in the area.

In 2000, UNESCO included Mount Qingcheng, together with the Dujiangyan Irrigation System, on its World Heritage List.

Admission: 90 yuan (US$14.22)/person
