An In-depth Exploration of Western Sichuan
9-Day Panorama Western Sichuan Tour
How much do you know about Sichuan province? The lovely giant pandas and incredible Sichuan food are not the only things this place has to offer. Sichuan also has an incredible national highway that connects the middle part of the country to Tibet. In China, it is known as the most beautiful highway and is considered a bucket list drive.
When starting from Chengdu and journeying west, you will feast your eyes on the beautiful landscape, experience the culture blend between Tibet and Han Chinese, and discover China's best-kept secret where explorer Joseph Rock wanted to visit again and again. (cd-82)

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
