Attraction & Sightseeing In Chongqing

Jinfo Nature Reserve -- People's Great Hall -- Wansheng Stone Forest


Jinfo Nature Reserve

Jinfo Nature Reserve - Attraction & Sightseeing In ChongqingChongqing is primarily an industrial city and it can be pleasant to escape the smog and crowds and head to the only nature reserve in the area. 

The Jinfo Nature Reserve (jinfoshan ziran baohuqu), is situated amidst huge lush mountains, with one third of the area here covered by virgin forest. Most impressive of all here are the flora and fauna, including over 6000 species of plant and 500 types of wild animal. 

If you are lucky enough, you may catch sight of rare tigers, leopards or spotted deer.

How to get there: Either take a bus from the Caiyuan Ba Bus Station   and get off at Nanchuan and then take another bus to the reserve, or take an express train to Wansheng and then take a long distance bus. The trip should take about 4 hours whether by bus or by bus and train.
