You have never seen China like this before. Six Senses Qing Cheng is situated at the picturesque gateway to the mystical mountain of Qing Cheng, a famous Taoist highland. Surround yourself with verdant forest, thick shoots of bamboo and densely hanging fog in this cradle of civilization. Dotted with holy temples and cultural relics, the mountain is also home to a wild panda research center and near Dujiangyan, a UNESCO World Heritage and Natural Cultural site. This is where Tai Chi was born, a therapeutic exercise that combines kung fu and qigong breathing. Settle into this ancient landscape in an unforgettable vacation experience.
Pandas are a national treasure in China and a wild panda research center is just a 10-minute drive from your accommodations. You'll have the rare opportunity to feed these gentle creatures in a controlled environment.
Photography buffs will love a nighttime tour through the ancient city wall of Dujiangyan and its famous Nan-Qiao Bridge. Flying eave roofs, carved figures and delicate stonework make for beautiful subjects.
Walk the trail through the resort's organic garden and rice fields at the base of Qing Cheng Mountain and delight in the rich negative oxygen ion air. Negative ions clear the air of allergens and bacteria.
The Dujiangyan irrigation system was built in 256 BC and still functions in the present. A half-day trip booked through the resort includes a walk through Qingxi Garden and up to spectacular views from Erwang Temple.
Ripe strawberries, grapes, cherries and kiwis are abundant on Qing Cheng Mountain. You'll be encouraged to pluck these natural treats and take them back to your luxurious accommodations.
On-site at Six Senses, Moon Bar opens features an extensive wine and cocktail list. If you want to pair your wine with a small meal, items from the menu at Sala Thai, also on-site, are available.

As with every Six Senses resort, you'll find a commitment to a crafted guest experience during your stay here. This includes personalized butler service, award-winning spa treatments and keen attention to detail.
Weather in this area of China is mild and temperate but experts suggest August as the ideal time to visit, as rainy season ends in August. For the fruit fanatics, autumn is peak season for wild kiwis.
Keep in mind that the Chinese New Year is a busy and revered holiday and the country all but shuts down to honor the calendar change for about 23 days, ending on the 15th day of the first lunar month in the following year.
If you're a U.S. citizen, you will need to obtain a valid visa to visit China. Travelers typically apply for the "L Visa," which will cover your activities during your stay at the Six Senses. Apply for your visa via the Chinese embassy here in the United States.
Located deep in the forests of China, the area surrounding the Qing Cheng Mountains boasts a subtropical climate characterized by mild conditions and relatively high humidity. Rain is common, especially in July and August, though the continuous moisture helps keep the foliage lush and green year-round.
