The city in the mountains
Chongqing is the largest municipality located in southwest China. It is a port city in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. With an area of 82,400 square kilometers (31, 800 square miles), it is the famous 'mountain city' sharing border with the provinces of Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou, Sichuan and Shaanxi.

Since its founding 3,000 years ago, Chongqing has been called Jiangzhou, Yuzhou, and Gongzhou, before getting its present name nearly 800 years ago. Since the Qin Dynasty (221 BC-206 BC), many dynasties have set up administrative institutions that have endowed the city with brilliant cultures. Perched beside the Yangtze, the "Golden River," Chongqing symbolizes Yangtze River civilizations and is the cradle of Bayu culture. Today, Chongqing is a modern city, Chin. Within its borders it encompasses a wealth of water reserves, mineral resources, dense forests, and abundant flora and fauna. Skirted by waters on three sides, and by the mountains on all sides, Chongqing is moist all the year round, enveloped by fog, with little snow and frost.
