Tour 'Wow' Points
Immerse Yourself in the Winter Wonderland of Bipenggou
With virgin forests, highland meadows, plateau lakes, glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and waterfalls, Bipenggou is the best place near Chengdu to feel winter's natural charm, and it is a good alternative to Jiuzhaigou (currently closed).
Enjoy Serene and Scenic Skiing and a Natural Hot Spring Resort
Unlike Xiling Ski Resort, Bipenggou Ice and Snow World has natural snowy slopes with less crowding inside stunningly scenic Bipenggou National Park. Before daytime sightseeing and skiing, you can relax in a nearby snowy valley's hot spring resort in late afternoon or evening, staying overnight there.
Encounter Adorable Pandas in a Less-Touristy Panda Base
Dujiangyan Panda Base enjoys a favorable climate and natural environment with lovely scenic surroundings. It is easy to get to the front of each panda enclosure for close-up panda photos as the park is well designed and there are reasonable visitor numbers.

Amazing Tibet experience in Sichuan
Henry was an informative guide who went out of his way to ensure positive experiences. Mr Wu was not only a safe and attentive driver on sometimes rough roads but also a great photographer, capturing shots of us as we toured. Henry went out of his way to talk to anyone around to help bring the place alive through stories so we had the opportunity to meet so many locals, real people, and hear about their lives. Another highlight was the opportunity to climb a 1000 year old watchtower in Danba and meet the local family who managed it. Truly magical. Henry was also a consummate foodie who provided us with great local food recommendations along the way. more
