CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Recently, based on friends' travel experiences shared on Internet, they were all about playing with water and those places are flooded with tourists. Are there some cool places with few visitors in Chongqing? Let's see!
Wulong Dadonghe Township 武隆大洞河乡
The Dadonghe Township, which is in Wulong, is not as famous as Xiannv Mountain, so it's not well known by many. With an average elevation of 1080 meters and 85% forest coverage, it features supernaturally beautiful Dadonghe canyon scenery, and grand Jiwei Mountain sites. There is also graceful Muyang Valley, and majestic Buddha Rock as well as the lush Daliangzi primeval forest. In the charming town of Dadonghe, rows of houses line the streets, showing the primeval style of Bayu natives. The small town lies hidden in the depths of the mountain, providing a unique scene for tourists.

Gujian Mountain in Qijiang District 綦江古剑山
Gujian Mountain Region has an average altitude of 905 meters and a temperature of 25°C in summer. It's about an hour's drive from the urban area. The Region includes Gu'nan Street and Gujian Mountain, one 4A level scenic spot and national geological park. Gujian Mountain scenic area covers an area of 86.67km2 with more than 85% forest coverage, so it's called “Chongqing's green lung and natural oxygen bar”.
