This was incredibly beautiful. There was a five tier waterfall was the most spectacular waterfall I've ever seen. You walk through a bamboo forest.

We took the Cable Car up from Beibei, ( 45 minute drive from downtown Chongqing ). it's a local one, a little rough but works fine, it's quite a long way up to the Mountain Station, a good 20 minutes cost RMB 25 each way. Then there are lots of tracks around and up to a few peaks including Shuzi Peak, Lions Peak, and an old Temple and Pagoda. The paths are pretty well kept, air very fresh and nice altitude. If the weather is good you can get a good view, otherwise usual Chongqing fog. But it's very refreshing to get out of the city, relatively quiet and nice. Some old hotels up there you can stay. A good escape from the hustle and bustle of CQ with great mountain air.

Following an earlier post advice, we took a local bus from Beibei to the Great Southwest University (bus station is about 15 mins walk from Metro and there is a KFC near it) and start our hike from there. Note - there are direct local bus from Beibei to Jinyun main entrance.

Despite asking several locals there, we couldn't find the route from the university to Jinyun apart from walking along a boring highway. So we had to take another bus from the university. We were lucky to find a great local guy at a bus stop who even took us mid way up. Sorry, but we did not record the bus number and where it stops. But it was not the main entrance. He took the route where locals take. We ended up at the Sunset peak and it took us about 1.5 hours with a beer break in between.

Camped a night up in the sunset peak. Path is very easy to do (again, maps are not very accurate) and we finished all 9 peaks by lunch the next day. Views are ok. We ended at the sunrise peak (near Shizi/Lions Peak) where there is an exit and local buses back to Beibei. Water is not very easily available due to lack of public toilets and streams. Watch out for mossies during summer. There are local vendors in key spots with food and drinks. Did not buy any so cannot comment on the price.
