The main peak - Yaomei Feng (the youngest sister), with 6250 meters above sea level is the highest peak in Qionglai mountains and the second highest peak in Sichuan Province, it is known as the “queen of Sichuan's peaks”. Because of its unique landscape of snow peaks, forests, pastures, rivers and Tibetan houses, it is also reputed as "the Alps of the East". As a part of the giant panda’s habitat, Siguniang Mountain was included in the world heritage list as a world natural heritage in July 2006.

We have two and a half days to walk in the Shuangqiaogou-, Changpinggou- and Haizigou Valley of Siguniang mountain to enjoy the beauty of nature.
