This is an off-the-beaten track in Siguniang Mountains of Aba Tibetan Autonomous Region. The range of 6,000 meter peaks is less than a day drive northwest of Chengdu, capital of Sichuan province – China.
The saber shaped Mt Siguniang stands at 6,250m, the highest point of the Qionglai mountains.This pristine section of the Qionglai range is composed of three parallel north-south running valleys, namely: Shuangqiao Gully, Changping Gully and Haizi Gully.
Together with a local guide, horse(s) as porters, we’ll follow the ancient horse trail zigzagging through the forests in the Changpinggou and Haizi gully. Carpeted with age-old pines and cypresses and many beautiful lakes, the gully takes us through old growth juniper and hemlock forests, presenting an atmosphere of a fairyland.
