Leo’s 2 Days Mount Siguniang Side Trip from Chengdu
Mount Siguniang, located 205km west from Chengdu is one of the most popular sightseeing and trekking destinations with the reputations of UNESCO World Natural Heritage site, "Oriental Alps" and "A Sacred Mountain in the East". With the highest Yaomei Peak towering 6,032 meters crowned by clouds and ranking the second in Sichuan, the "Queen of Mountains in Sichuan Province" shows its terrific snow-capped summits all year round from a close admiration from a city. Moreover, the famous hidden Shuangqiao Valley, Changqiao Valley and Haizi Valley with fabulous dense primitive forests, wide flowery alpine meadows, shimmering lakes, grazing yaks and horses, etc. are always favored by nature lovers from spring to winter for a visual satisfactory and nice hiking!
Day 1: Drive to Mount Siguniang from Chengdu
We took a 2 days tour to Mountain Siguniang from Chengdu downtown. The scenery along the road is amazing and beautiful.
When we passed the Balang Mountain, you can see many snow mountains outside of the window.
Finally we reached our destination, Siguniang Town, and checked in our hotel.
From the top of the mountain, you can see the town where we stay, almost surrounded by mountains and has very good views.
Day 2: Mount Siguniang Hiking Tour & Drive back to Chengdu
Next day, after breakfast, we started our trip to Changping Valley, one of the valleys of Siguniang. There are two options for you except Haizi Valley (only hiking no sightseeing bus): sightseeing bus or hiking which we chose. It proved that we chose the wrong option if you couldn’t hike to the end of the valley. It’s better to take sightseeing bus and do some hiking, and hiking can let you see more natural views.
And more, you can also visit some beautiful lakes in the valley.
Along the way back to Chengdu, if weather permitting, you can see the four peaks from Maobiliang which is a platform to see the peaks.
