Walk along these cool rivers barefoot on weekends
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Although it is autumn now, “Indian Summer” is still very powerful. When the sun comes out, you may really want to walk along a cool river. There are a lot of places to play with water where few people know them in Chongqing. Beautiful scenery, clear water and never crowded, that is the wonderful way to spend summer. Let’s go and have a look!
Tianshengqiao Canyon in Nanchuan
In Nanchuan, there is an unpopular scenic spot called the Tianshengqiao Canyon, which also has a water curtain cave like the one in the novel “A Journey to the West”. The shallow stream is less than half a meter in depth, and you can feel a little bit cold if you put your feet in. The water in the canyon is crystal clear and sparkles in the rays of the sun. Children can play in the shallow stream and catch crabs. Adults can swim and dive in a deeper stream. They can also fish while chatting and enjoy the time.

Jindaoxia is very big. Go along the river, the water is shallow from the beginning, it is very interesting that the depth of water keeps changing. During the trip, a section will be somewhat steep and you need to jump. The water gets deeper as you walk, and you may play as much as you like.
You can find an adequate place to rest if you feel a little tired. There are many fish, frogs and crabs here that you can catch and cook, they are very delicious cooked with the stream water. When night falls, you can also sleep under a starry sky, while soft breeze blows. Sometimes a firefly or two may appear, if meet, how wonderful is that!

Tiaodeng River in Fuling
The Tiaodeng River is not far from Chongqing main city, but its crystal-clear water and emerald mountains are known to few people. We think that walking along the river and camping are the most interesting activities, because you can chat with friends happily in a natural environment. When in high spirits, you may go to play with water and catch fish, and take a break under a tree, can it be more relaxing?

Youcao River in Shizhu
Grass grows vigorously on both banks of Youcao River and the river water is cool and clear, appears as if fantastic crystal clear jade in the sun. Walking along the river, you may play with pebbles, catch fish, listen to the stream, appreciate the grand river and the stunning scenery, how wonderful is that!
