Chongqing- In Chongqing’s winter, the weather is usually warm, especially in the urban area, so that it’s hard to see heavy snow covers here. However, Wulong is a special place where you can easily see snows in the city and even enjoy snow sports here.
Meeting with abundant tourism resources, Wulong constructs its unique methods of tourism according to the landforms. Wulong Karst National Geology Park, an important part of South China Karst, is situated at the lower reaches of the Wujiang River in southeast Chongqing. It was named as a world natural heritage by UNESCO in 2007. Wulong Karst features spectacular karst landscapes, including the three main parts of Furong Cave, Three Natural Bridges, Houping Giant Doline (Houping Tiankeng) and other scenic spots.
Wulong Karst Geological Park is the filming location of films Curse of the Golden Flower, directed by Zhang Yimou, and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It’s good to walk there to sightsee natural viewings there, with friends or families. You can chat with others while walking, immersing yourself in nature.

Among those amazing peaks in Wulong, there is one peak that looks like a dancing fairy, therefore, getting the name Fairy Mountain. The winter scene of Fairy Mountain is surrounded by rolling mountains and dense forests with vast grassland in the middle. When all this is shrouded by snows in winter, it presents a holy beauty of the world of white. Wrapped in silver makeup, the snow, misty, and ice-falls are breathtaking, giving the place a northern snowfield scenery.
There are snow sports such as sled riding, flying saucers, ski boats, and more, in the ski resort there.
After playing exciting sports, it’s good to get some delicious food. In China, winter is the best season to have some mutton to resist the cold weather. Wulong is a perfect place to have some hot mutton pot because lambs here are free-range on the mountain so that the mutton is absolutely tender. Moreover, the whole roasted lamb here is fantastic. With carefully picked seasonings, lambs are crisp and tender. After that, having some mutton soup is the highest enjoyment of the tongue.
