What to Expect
Dujiangyan Irrigation System was built during 256-251 BC or so under the direction of Li Bing, the local governor at that time. The system is mainly composed of Yuzui Water-dividing Dike, Feishayan Spillway and Baopingkou Water Inlet, to divide Minjiang River into the Inner and Outer Rivers. It has played the roles in flood control and field irrigation for more than 2,000 years. Since then, Chengdu Plain turned into the land of abundance.
