Situated in Huaying Mountain, the Shili Lotus Corridor boasts tall hills, exuberant forests, and refreshing air. Early morning is the best time to visit it when pink and white lotus flowers are stunningly drenched in beads of dew. For most Chongqing locals, lotus flowers that grow in ponds are quite common, but such an expanse of ornamental lotus flowers is quite rare. As long as about five kilometers, the corridor covers an area of up to 200 ha.
