Chongqing – Wulong “Heaven Pit Earth Crack” – 3 Natural Bridges, Longshuixia Fissure Gorge 重庆 武隆 天坑地缝 天生三桥, 龙水峡地缝

Location: Chongqing City, Wulong District 重庆市 武隆区

Time of visit: October 2019

Note: This place is often confused with another famous scenic area with a similar name in Fengjie County 奉节县, which also belongs to Chongqing City. These two Tiankeng Difeng (“Heaven Pit Earth Crack”) 天坑地缝 are far away from each other, 6-7 hours by car. See this post about the other scenic area. Below is a map with both sites:

2 different Tiankeng Difeng

Official website: in English  and  in Chinese

How to get there: 3 hours by bus from Chongqing to Xiannüshanzhen (Xiannüshan Town) 仙女山镇. Wulong District (County) center is half an hour away.

Where to stay: Xiannüshan Town 仙女山镇. The hotels in the town are within walking distance from the big Wulong Visitor Center, from where all sightseeing buses to the scenic areas leave.

The buses take all visitors first to Three Natural Bridges 天生三桥, and at the exit another bus is waiting to take you to Longshuixia Fissure Gorge 龙水峡地缝. Time needed: half a day (4-5 hours) for both areas.

The world heritage site Furong Cave 芙蓉洞 is one hour away by bus from the tourist center in Xiannüshan Town. See this post about Furong cave.

When you get off the bus you have two alternatives: waiting in a long queue for an elevator, or walking down the stairs to “heaven pit”. It’s not very deep, but it’s difficult to walk fast because there’s a lot of people.
