Richly endowed Chongqing is home to a slew of thrilling outdoor events across its rocky terrain — Jinfo Mountain Cliff Plank Road, Yunyang Cliff Swing, Shizhu Covered Glass Bridge, and a lot more. Below are some super-exciting events recommended for you.
Canyoning is an outdoor leisure activity in which you jump down the waterfall holding the rope or race down with the stream. Simply put, it is cliff diving during which you drift with the water. Different from drifting, it is the direct contact between people and rapids — super-exciting Body Rafting.
The moment you jump off the cliff and dive into the water is fantastic. In this split second, the impact of fear and excitement can be profound, making you feel relaxed and refreshed. Multiple diving spots in Jindao Gorge will deliver you a breathtaking experience.
Body Rafting is an event in which you slide down from a very slippery naturally-formed rock using the force of the water flow. The breakneck speed per hour is a challenge to your psychological capability—people who participate in this event scream all their way.

Nanpingba is a flat, scenic island in the middle of the Yangtze River. It won the honor of “Hulun Buir Decibel” this year. Flying over Nanpingba gives you a vantage point to view both banks of the Yangtze River, islands in the river, and the countryside scenery.
You can soar in the sky, spin at low altitude, make a nose dive, or rise in the company of a smart-looking coach. When airflow comes, you drop abruptly, making your heart pound as you scream.
