Recommended trips for the remaining of August
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Although it is still hot, the summer is alomst over. Wanna have a perfect ending for this summer? Let's go out and play at the end of the summer vacation. At present, many scenic spots in Chongqing are already overcrowded, and it is not easy to find a quiet and cool place for vacation. Today, we will recommend several routes, along which you can both play with water and cool off!
1. A two-day trip in the suburbs of Chongqing
Day one: Main urban areas – Wuling Mountain Great Rift Valley – Fengdu Nantian Lake;
Day two: Fengdu Nantian Lake – Sanfu Forestry – Main urban areas
Route overview: This route is a short self-driving route. The sights are all around the main urban areas, with cool weather and without crowded.
Wuling Mountain Great Rift Valley has magnificent peaks, rift valleys, jungles and waterfalls that allow you to get in touch with the nature. Nantian Lake is a plateau lake, whose annual average temperature is only 9.2 °C. You can also see the original wonders such as the sinkholes. Sanfu Forestry is adjacent to Nantian Lake, where tens of thousands of mu of spruce grow freely. One may set up a tent under the tree, hang a hammock, and look up the sun from the tree gap, and have a sweet dream in a cool and quiet place.

2. A three-day trip to Southeast Chongqing
Day one: Main urban areas – Qianjiang Xiaonanhai Lake – Puhua Underground Rive – Youyang;
Day two: Youyang – Youshui River – Huatian Titian – Xiushan;
Day three: Xiushan – Hongan Ancient Town – Chuanhegai – Main urban areas
Route overview: This route basically covers all the attractions that are suitable for summer travel in southeastern Chongqing. You can not only experience the natural scenery, but also experience the customs. If there is extra time, Ayi River rafting can be added, which is very worthwhile.
Xiaonanhai is a mountain lake with unique and rare earthquake formations in both China and the world. The Youshui River is known as the “Little Guilin in southeast Chongqing”. Among the many terraced fields in Chongqing, we recommend Hutian Titian (terraced field). It is beautiful due to its primitivity and originality. Hong An, an ancient city that is in the dreams of many people, exudes a simple west-Hunan style everywhere. The winding old slate-street of several kilometers goes along the water and mountain. There is not much commercialization here, and it has maintained the charm of "Border Town" so far.

3. A three-day trip to North Guizhou
Day one: Main urban areas – Chishui Waterfall – Sidonggou – Chishui;
Day two: Chishui – Shier Beihou -Suiyang;
Day three: Suiyang –Tea Sea – Main urban areas of Chongqing
Route overview: The scenic spots covered by this route are basically small scenic spots in northern Guizhou, so one can avoid crowds, and experience different types of northern-Guizhou scenery. If you have extra time, you can add the attractions in Tongzi.
The Chishui Waterfall, although not as famous as the Huangguoshu Waterfall, has equally magnificent and shocking water-dropping curtains, and the crimson cliffs behind it are great background. Even in the summer, there are no many people, and you can also go rafting. The scenery on both sides is beautiful. Sidonggou is known as a “scenic spot with no failures”. You can enter the scenic spot and follow the mountaineering route along the stream. The stream flows through the winding rocks to form a water-themed landscape. You can walk on the stream and play with water. Yongxing Tea Sea is also called China Tea Sea. It is currently the largest tea sea in the world.
