Dujiangyan Irrigation Project (都江堰水利工程)
The Dujiangyan Irrigation System is an incredible ancient feat of engineering on par in its ingenuity and sophistication with the Great Wall and Grand Canal. Dating back some 2,000 years, the system addressed two of the biggest problems besetting China's rulers: controlling flood-prone waterways and delivering much-needed water to parched land.Dujiangyan is roughly 60 km (37 mi) from Chengdu and is the site where a third-century BC official and engineer named Li Bing devised a scheme (still in use and much expanded today) to both control the dangerous Min River and use its waters to irrigate the surrounding farmland. For this, Li Bing remains a national hero of near mythic status, as attested to by the temple honoring the man and his achievements found at Dujiangyan. Walk across the An Lan Suspension Bridge, one of the old style bridges that spans the Min River. Built in 1,000 AD it remains a thrilling experience to cross.
Qingcheng Shan (青城山)
Qingcheng Shan is one of the ancient cradles of Taoism. Numerous Taoist temples dot the mountain's slopes, along adjoining paths which lead to the peak. The mountain is relatively low, at 1,600 m (6,250 ft) above sea level, remaining pleasantly green year round. Well-maintained trails offer numerous spots for relaxing and enjoying the view.
