CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- It is a good time for a trip in fine autumn weather when the breeze blows softly. Today, we will recommend one-day trips and two-day trips to everyone. Let's take a look!
Tieshanping Forest Park
Strongly recommend by hiking enthusiasts, Tieshanping is a 4A level scenic spot with free admission and can be toured round-trip in a day with a few visitors. However, it is hardly enough to watch all the sights in one day. You can choose from 2 routes recommended by us.
East route: suitable for taking pictures of the Yangtze River at Tongluo Canyon. The pedestrian footpath at the Tongluo Canyon is 6 kilometers, and it can be accessed at Hutou Rock, Tongluo Canyon Xishan Gate and Tongluo Canyon Hot Spring. The scenery along the way is mainly cultural landscape. There are River Lock Ruins, Gong of the Secluded Canyon and so on. It is the best photography location in the suburbs of the Yangtze River, and you can also enjoy the different levels of scenery between the river and the canyon!
West route: for enjoying farmer’s food which are not mass produced. Dense pine and bamboo groves grows in refreshing air along the 5-kilometer road from Sandie Spring along Cuiwei Road to Yufeng Mountain. There are a lot of leisure villas and farmhouses along the route, and their hosts mostly make the dishes with food from their own fields, as a result the food is very fresh.

Simian Mountain in Jiangjin

In addition, there are thousands of square meters of garden cosmos at Mazhaying, which are distributed on the right side of the entrance gate of the scenic spot. Flowering period starts in early September and will last until the end of October. Nurtured by the sun and rain, the lovely garden cosmos sea is yellow and pink.
