It is one of ten classical trekking routes in China that we hike from Changping Valley of Siguniang Mountain - “the Chinese Alps”, to Bipenggou Valley. There are “flower seas” in summer, red leaves and colorful forests in autumn and even the perennially snow-capped mountain. It is a paradise for hikers!
