Famed as one of the top popular tourist destinations in the whole of China, Chengdu has a lot to offer for stylish travelers to meet their interests with a great variety of delicious foods, abundant historical sites, numerous museums, friendly people, iconic pandas, and beautiful parks, etc. Serving as the capital city of Sichuan province, Chengdu has a recorded history of over 2000 years and is located in the hinterland of southwest China, that provides great convenience for travelers to fly in or fly out and explore the kingdom of plants in the mountainous regions around Chengdu or enjoy colorful city life. The monsoon-influenced humid subtropical climate here and fertile soil in Sichuan Basin has contributed tremendously to the abundance of plant species and made it one of the best places to live in China. For plant lovers, Chengdu is an ideal place to start a journey for plants. To the west of the city is the Hengduan Mountains which has been listed by Conservation International as one of 36 hotspots for biodiversity globally. To the south is the World Natural and Cultural Heritage site Emei Mountain which boasts of over 5000 plant species. To the north are the Qingling Mountains and northern part of the Minshan Mountains which is home to the largest number of wild pandas.

The huge elevation gap of almost 5000 meters starting from the lowest point of 379 meters on Chengdu Plain to the highest point of 5,353 meters of the Daxuetang Peak has created various habitats for the existence of rich biodiversity.

Wujiashan Mountain

Wujiashan Mountain is located in Jiangyou county, Mianyang city, northern Sichuan, covering an area of 25 square kilometers. The height of this mountain varies from 1200m to 2179 m. Because most of the people who live here have the surname Wu, so people call it Wujiashan. The most attractive thing in Wujiashan is the magnolia tree(Magnolia sprengeri ). This kind of magnolia tree has big pink flowers hanging on the branches without leaves when it begins to bloom. There are more than 60,000 magnolia trees, covering an area of more than 466 hectares. Some of the trees are more than 30 meters high. And the oldest trees are more than 300 years old. Whenever the flowers bloom, the mountains will become a sea of tree flowers, when you place yourself in the sea of tree flowers, you feel what is a paradise on earth.
