Images capture stunning scenery of ‘Mountain City’

22th June 2018


On April 5, 2018 in Chongqing, lightening lit the dark night.



As the city is built on mountains, Chongqing has been nicknamed as "mountain city."


The integration of mountainous terrain and urban construction creates a special landscape here. When you drive on the roads in Chongqing, you see buildings above you on one side of the road and buildings below you on the other, as well as a skyline showing layer-upon-layer of buildings on mountains.

山地地形和城市建设造就了这座特殊的城市。 当你开车时,你也许会在一侧看到头顶上的高楼,而另一侧确已是楼的顶端, 还有层层叠叠的天际线。

Chongqing also has another nickname, “furnace city,” not only because of its scorching summers, but also its signature foods: spicy hotpot that enjoys a reputation nationwide as well as abroad in countries like Japan, the US, and Russia.
