Mount Siguniang Hiking Tour

4 Days Mount Siguaniang Leisure Hiking Tour

Hiking at the Eastern Alps

Mount Siguniang, in Chinese means Mountain of Four Girls, is composed of four neighboring snow peaks over 5,300 meters high arraying in a straight line within short 3.5km. Yaomei Peak(6,250m) is the second highest mountain in Sichuan, and known as the Queen of All Sichuan Mountains. Western travelers who had visited Yaomei Peak praise it as the “Eastern Alps” for its breathtaking beauty.

There are three beautiful alpine valleys lying at the foot of Mount Siguniang – Shuangqiao Valley in the west, Changping Valley in the middle and Haizi Valley in the east. If we say the four snow peaks are the dream destinations for trekkers who want to experience serious challenging climbing, then the three valleys are the paradise for all the people who want to enjoy the fun and joy of hiking or walking which is enjoyable at moderate pace and full of opportunities to explore nature landscape.

Mount Sigunian, located in Xiaojin County of Sichuan Province, is only about 220km’s driving from Chengdu. So we specially designed this tour for you to travel conveniently from Chengdu to Mount Siguniang, and spend two full days to hike two most featured and beautiful valleys – Changping and Haizi. It is suitable for most people, including family with kids, youth, adults and seniors.
