Location: Chongqing City, Wansheng District 重庆市 万盛区
Time of visit: October 2019
How to get there: 2 hours by bus from Chongqing City.
It’s 90 minutes by car from Golden Buddha Mountain (Jinfoshan 金佛山).
Time needed in the scenic area: half a day is enough (we stayed for 3 hours or a little less). If you start early, it’s possible to visit both Black Mountain Valley and Golden Buddha Mountain the same day and get back to Chongqing in the evening.
We stayed in Xinhetai Hotel 新荷泰酒店 (see info in Chinese and in English), located in central Nanchuan District one hour by car from Black Mountain Valley, and less than an hour from Golden Buddha Mountain.
Warning: They have installed loudspeakers with motion detectors along the walking paths, as you get near a loudspeaker it starts making noise (pop music or “information”). It’s extremely annoying, although many domestic tourists don’t seem to care.
