Know More about this tour

Upon pickup from your Chengdu hotel in the morning, drive by private vehicle for approximately 1 hour to a village market. You'll receive a bit of money from your guide to bargain for fresh vegetables, and use mostly body language to talk with the vendors. Experience authentic village life as you try communicating with the locals, but don't worry your guide will assist you when needed!
Then hop back in the car and zigzag up a mountain road to the starting point of your countryside trek. Hike with your guide for an hour on a small path through a valley and mountain ridge, passing farmland, an orchard, brushwood and bridges while friendly people greet you along the way.

When you reach the village of Chen Jia Xiang, visit a local farmhouse and enjoy a Chinese lunch in the courtyard. Your meal includes pork and vegetable dishes prepared fresh from produce bought at the market. After lunch, visit the village teahouse and spend some time with local elders and children, learning how to play cards. If you meet any villagers doing farm work afterward, your guide will help you to join them if you'd like.

In the afternoon, youll take a different route on your 1.5-hour return trek, hiking up and down along a mountain path by a reservoir until you reach your vehicle. Then transfer to your next destination Huanglongxi Ancient Town for a stroll around its well-preserved stone streets, built during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911). Pass three ancient temples as well as historical residences along the central lane.

Relax at a riverside teahouse for another sip (own expense) before heading back to your Chengdu hotel, a 1-hour drive by private vehicle.
