Discover Mysterious Tibetan Area in Sichuan
5-Day Northern Sichuan Tour
Compared to western Sichuan which is already famous among Chinese adventurers and photographers, northern Sichuan is like a hidden treasure waiting for people to go and discover it. In northern Sichuan, you'll find the source of the Yellow River, the peaceful homeland of Tibetan and Qiang people, and one of the best-kept secrets that aren't even known to most Chinese people.
Let's explore this mysterious land on a 5-day Sichuan tour before it becomes part of the beaten path. (cd-83)

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
