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.

We had a memorable experience hiking
We had a memorable experience hiking the Yellow Mountain in Huangshan. Our trip was complicated by the typhoon that hit the area and we had to have a flexible itinerary, China Highlights helped with this. Once we arrived, Tony was very helpful & was able to tailor the experience for the different fitness levels in the group. more
Itinerary Quick Look
Here is a suggested itinerary. We are happy to customize a tour according to your interests.
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.
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.
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.
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.
