Chengkou

Hundreds years ago, deep in Da Ba Mountain there inhabited a group of people named the same - Kang, besides them flow by a river named after the rare family name. That's the reason why this wonderland is called Kang Gu as well. Maybe it's the landform too difficult to change, or probably people choose to follow ancient lifestyle. Time went by, the rare family name extincted but Kang River lasts still and Kang Gu stays the way it is.

Within one hour driving (39 Kilometers) away from east Chengkou county will you arrive Da Ba Mountain. Kang Gu lies in the vally, in shape of a strip stretching to north from south, length in 35 kilometers. Stepping into Kang Gu then you drop into green. Various plants, sum up to 3800 kinds are well - preserved here, 197 of which are even national key protections, 137 kinds tree mainly composed of arbor and mizuki.

Kang River is the core of Kang Gu. Sometimes it calms like mirror. Sometimes it excites like army. In summer time, tourists come all over around, drifting down the stream. Primitive life doesn’t mean boring instead it’s colorful. Here you can not only enjoying dancing around campfire but also taste original ecological food.

据传,亢谷景区因古时亢河两岸亢姓人家居多而得名,如今亢河沿线的亢姓已消失得无影无踪,亢谷得名却因此而源远流长。或许是 地处深山深处,亦或是这里的人无意于改变,千年后“亢”式一姓业已消失,亢河之水仍长流于此,亢谷也不曾改变。

中国亢谷风景区位于大巴山腹地,坐落在重庆市城口县东部。峡谷呈南北走势,犹如一条长35公里的绿色走廊,3800种植物生长于此,其中197类属于国家重点保护植物,137类树种以乔木和权木为主。

纵贯南北的亢河是亢谷的灵魂,谷间流泉不断,鸟鸣不绝,时而开阔平坦,时而深邃狭长,夏季便成漂流佳处。古朴的生活比城市更精彩,游客在此不仅能围着篝火跳舞,还能品尝当地生态美食。
