Chongqing- Hot, humid, and sweltering, rafting becomes the perfect choice to relieve the heat for Chongqing residents. This rafting sport is trendy in cities with many rivers and canyons like Chongqing. In this article, let’s go on an adventure in those rafting resorts!

Fuoying Canyon Rafting in Ba’nan District

Fuoying Canyon is located in Shengdingshan Scenic Area in Ba’nan District. It is 5.1 kilometers long and takes about two hours to raft, with a drop of 117 meters, and the speed of water flow is sometimes turbulent and sometimes smooth.

As a long-established rafting resort in Chongqing, the canyon is not at a high altitude, but the water is nice and cool. After the exciting rafting, visitors can also go through the canyon and have a fun adventure in the jungles. Nearby are also attractions such as the Shengdeng Mountain, South Lake, and Shiling mountain village.

Jindao Canyon Rafting in Beibei District

Located in Jindaoxia town in Beibei District, the Jindao Canyon Rafting is at the foot of the southwest side of Huaying mountain, 880 meters above sea level. If visitors feel that regular boat rafting is not exciting, it should be an excellent choice to come to Jindao Canyon to experience an upgraded version of rafting – canyoning.

Dive into the stream and feel your way forward. The process takes about two hours, during which competitive group games are also played. It is more challenging and entertaining than usual rafting because of the slippery rocks that the waterfall has washed for a long time and the stream pounding against human bodies directly.
