- 1DaomingzhenStop: 7 hoursYour driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel at 08:00 am. Then you will head for Wugen Mountain located about 60 kilometers (37 miles) west of Chengdu, taking around 1.5 hours to arrive. After arriving, we will begin by taking a short visit to White Pagoda Monastery and the unique library inside, created by Master Guoping. Then you will start hiking the trails and exploring the hidden villages scattered around the woods and mountains. The trails naturally bring you to a valley, where you can enjoy an authentic lunch from a local restaurant. In the afternoon, you will walk up to the ridge of a small mountain and continue making your way around the lake before going down to a teahouse where you have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a cup of tea. Today’s hiking ends when you arrive at the beautiful White Pagoda Lake, situated below a Buddhist temple that has a white pagoda emerging from the mountain top, providing the lake with its name. After enjoying the lake view, you have the opportunity to visit a local bamboo-weaving workshop in a small village nearby. Our guide and driver will bring you back to your hotel and you can expect to arrive between 18:30 and 19:15, depending on traffic.Read more
