10-day Mountaineering at Mt. Siguniang Shan

Sichuan

Mt. Siguniang Shan is famed for its steep and imposing ridges. The high meadows are gorgeous throughout the four seasons. Hundreds of wildflowers burst forth in spring, giving way to luxuriant green trees and grass in summer. In the fall, the leaves on the trees blaze in color heralding the coming snows of winter. Because of the clear, blue sky, the thick forest at the foot of the mountains, the verdant grassland, and the murmuring streams, Siguniang Shan is sometimes known as the 'Alps of the Orient'. You may, in fact, think you are in southern Europe. In this journey we will aim at the peak of the first girl at an altitude of 5,025m, on which you deep feel the excitement of hiking.
