About this place

Built before 256 B.C ,  Dujiangyan Irrigation System is one of the three largest projects in ancient China, but the only one which is still working, as the other 2( Great Wall and Beijing-Hangzhou Canal) are not used any more.

Located at the east edge of the Tibetan Plateau, this Irrigation System has been preventing Sichuan Valley from flood and bringing water to every piece of farmland in the valley since it was built. Thanks to this, Sichuan valley became one of the most productive and safest place in all China known as Tianfuzhigou (Heavenly Kingdom).

Not only huge ancient dam, fresh glacier water and rapid canals, walking along the irrigation system, you will also see the most picturesque scenery around Chengdu,combining green mountain range, temples of different sorts of religions(Taoism,Confucianism and Islam) and ancient town.

Hiking in the Yulei Hill by the Irrigation System along the ancient China-Tibetan Tea and Horse Road, it gives one a strong feeling of going back to ancient days, when nature and human were in such a great harmony.
