Many attractive titles have been attached to the Dazu Rock Carvings, such as one of the seven 5A class tourist attractions in Chongqing, one of UNESCO’s World Cultural Heritage sites, and one of the world’s eight grottoes. All of these attributes and accolades add up to prove that as a destination in the Mountain City, the Dazu Rock Carvings is definitely worth a visit.

重慶大足石刻是重慶七個五A景區之一,更有世界文化遺產,世界八大石窟之一等諸多頭銜,是重慶非常值得一去的地方。

Dazu Rock Carvings sits at a distance of 100 km from downtown Chongqing, which requires less than one and a half hour driving time. If you aren’t a fan of self-driving, long-distance buses from Caiyuanba Station and Chongqingbei Station may be more suitable. A taxi can be hailed after your arrival at Dazu District, or you can simply book a one-day trip from travel agencies and have everything taken care of.

大足石刻離主城100公里,車程不超過1個半小時,你可以在菜園壩和重慶北站的長途汽車站坐車去大足,然後下車後換計程車前往,當然也可以找一日遊的旅行團。

To start my journey to Dazu, I’ve planned to visit three spots - Changzhou Ancient Town, Beishan Mountain Rock Carvings and Baoding Mountain Rock Carvings, all located in the center of Dazu and close to each other.

本次小編去到了大足的3個景點,昌州古城、北山石刻、以及寶頂山石刻,這幾個地方都在大足縣中心內,並且相互離得很近。

The first stop is Changzhou Ancient Town, a newly-built 「ancient town」without inhabitants, raised up in accordance with river. With a state office, drama stage and sinology academy... it’s like traveling across time and space and placing yourself in Song Dynasty on account of the overall construction style. The ancient town charges no fee, so anyone can pay a visit. In the morning you may see few tourists and open stores. However it’s still a nice place for wandering around.

首先是昌州古城,這是一個新修的“古城”,本身並沒有居民居住,建築風格非常有宋代建築特色,古城依河而建,有府衙、戲臺、國學院等。古城不需要門票,可隨意出入,因為小編是是工作日上午去的吧,裏面沒什麼人,很多商鋪也沒開,但是修得不錯,逛逛還是挺舒服。

Beishan Rock Carvings can be regarded as a mini version of Dazu Rock Carvings. Unfortunately some unwise activities have caused severe damage to the heads and limbs of most rock carvings. A package ticket costs 120RMB and provides access to both Beishan Mountain and Baoding Mountain Rock Carvings, however you won’t miss too much if you choose Baoding only.

然後是北山時刻,這個景點小編覺得是大足石刻的“迷你版”,可以看到很多石刻的頭部、四肢等處已經被嚴重損壞,因為中國文革運動時期,對封建迷行的抵制所造成,非常可惜。北山時刻和大足寶頂時刻景區可以買聯票120元,但是小編建議可以只去寶頂石刻景區一處就夠了。

Finally here we are - the Baoding Mountain Scenic Area, so large that you need to spend over one hour just to cast a glance at it. Among all the sightseeing spots, the museum and the Baoding Mountain Rock Carvings attract most attention.

好,現在到精華部分,大足寶頂景區,這個景區非常大,單單在裏面走一圈,步行都需要1個多小時。裏面最重要的2處遊覽點是博物館和寶頂石刻。

Never hurry when exploring a museum. This museum has displayed a plenty of delicate photos with regard to the world’s eight grottoes, as well as some rock carvings collections, another sight to behold.

博物館是非常值得花時間好好參觀的,裏面展示了世界八大石窟的很多精美照片,裏面還有一些石刻藏品的收集。

When you arrive at Baoding Mountain, it means you have arrived at the most valuable part of the Dazu Rock Carvings.

最後就是大足寶頂部分,寶頂景區集合了大足石刻的最精華部分。

Solemn yet vivid rock carvings sit timeless in the wall, telling the traditional thoughts about good and evil, recording the religious faith, and showing reverence to divinities and Buddha.

中國古代的對善惡是非的定義,對宗教信仰記錄,以及對神明佛祖的敬畏,刻畫的圖文非常傳神,並且也很珍貴。

It’s highly recommended to hire an English travel guide at the entrance, so that you won’t be puzzled finding out exactly what these patterns mean.

我非常推薦,在門口請一個英文導遊帶領參觀,因為自己看的話,真的很難理解那圖案到底講了什麼。

Apart from the rock carvings, the scenic area is filled with beautiful landscapes and a comfortable environment that you

can’t miss.

整個景區除了石刻部分,景區景觀和環境也非常棒,可以好好逛一逛。

For only 10RMB you can take a single trip on shuttle buses or private cars inside the scenic area.

另外景區有shuttle bus可以坐,還有一些私人的小車,都是10元一個人單程。
