We were not familiar with Chengdu foods. All we knew.was that the food would be very spicy. To our surprised many of the snacks did jave a kick but it brought out the essence of the flavors. Our guide, Lucy, listened to our concerns and made us feel at ease in trying local snacks. They were all delicious! Loved the fact that these were local eateries with a passion of serving great meals. We also enjoyed the tuk tuk ride to get to the four restaurants which proved to be a faster mode of transportation. Hearing about the local city history made this a great learning experience. This is foodie city that will not disappoint!
If you’re looking to breathe in extremely fresh air, walk through bamboo forests and get some cardio done, this is the hike for you! The hike took us around 1.5 hours to reach the summit where you’ll be given a fantastic meal comprising village dishes (农家菜). The hot soulful meal will be the perfect accompaniment after a winter’s hike!
Guide informed us of the pickup timing via whatsapp the day before.
Good views and good workout! There actually weren't that many people hiking from the bottom which meant that we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves to take photos and enjoy.
The bamboo provides nice shade which protects you from the sun so you don't have to worry about burning up. Had a nice homecooked lunch near the top which included chicken soup and various veggies!
This tour is incredible for someone who is looking to experience the local life! Our tour guide Patrick is really knowledgeable. He explained about Le Shan Buddha in detailed and brought us around the local market, sharing the stories behind the local families, daily life and the history of the town with passion. This tour includes a boat trip that allows you to see the entire Le Shan Buddha (but not hiking around it as it would take 3 hours), a tour around the Suji ancient town, tea plantation and tea market. A really worthwhile experience!
