Challenge yourself: conquer Mt. Siguniang

Have you ever been to the top of a snowcapped mountain? Here we are welcoming you to join us and conquer the dafeng (literally the 'Grand Peak') of Mt. Siguniang. With an elevation of 5,025 m (16,486 ft), it is not the most elevated peak of the mountain, but it's still a great challenge with good accessibility.

Itinerary Quick Look

Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.

DAY 1 Chengdu Pick-Up and Journey to Siguniang Town

Your guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in downtown Chengdu and drive you to Mt. Balang to see its flower oceans (in spring and summer) or fall hues or snow-covered landscape (in winter). We reach Siguniang Town about 2 hours after the visit.

DAY 2 Hiking at Changping Valley

For adapting to the altitude, we've planned a short hike in Changping Valley to warm up and relax on day 2. Of course, the acclimatization exercise is totally adjustable to suit you.

DAY 3 Hiking to the Basecamp of Dafeng

The real challenge starts on day 3. We hike to the basecamp from Siguniang Town. The altitude increases from 3,200 to 4,400 meters (10,500 to 14,400 feet), and the 12-km (8-mile) hike takes about 6 hours.

DAY 4 Summit Attempt, and "Until Next Time..."

On the final day, we start hiking at about 4am in order to be on the top at around 7am to appreciate the sunrise there. The hiking distance is around 3.5 km (2.2 mi), and the ascent is from 4,400 to 5,025 meters (14,400 to 16,486 feet).

We'll finish the tour by driving you to back Chengdu.
