Yunding Mountains are llocated in Jintang County, which has a large area of hills and rivers in the east of Chengdu.
Yunding Mountains provide a grand view of the surrounding areas of rivers, canyons, lakes and flat ground.
Yunding Mountains in Jintang County consist of two peaks within its area — the Major Peak and the Minor Peak. The Major Peak rises 982 meters above the sea level while the Minor Peak sits 2.5 km away with a more precipitous cliff, though lower in elevation.
Ancient temples are well preserved on the top of the Major Peak and remains of artillery batteries, soldier camps and wharves can also be found in the area, as the site was very important for its strategic position and served as a stronghold during the war against the Mongol invaders at the end of the Southern Song dynasty (1127-1279).
