Walking through Wansheng Heishan Valley or the Black Valley offers a refreshing experience. The scenic area has a forest coverage rate of about 97% and is 110km from downtown Chongqing. It is a popular summer resort with crystal clear streams running through peaceful valleys, and surrounded by densely wooded slopes.
Apart from walking on the plank road, stepping on the pontoon and enjoying the mountain view, visitors can also participate in rafting, rock climbing, camping, fishing, and hunting, exciting and refreshing.
The valley is the most extensive natural ecological landscape with the best environmental protection in Chongqing. It consists of cliffs, forests, bamboo, waterfalls, clear water, caves, and pontoons, stretching for more than ten kilometers.
Families can not only enjoy the lake and mountains but also participate in various interactive and exciting activities.
