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.
