The blue sky, snow peaks, murmuring streams, ancient cypress forests, rushing waterfalls, and alpine meadows make this area a natural romantic dream. The name Mt. Siguniangshan(four girls mountains) came from a beautiful legend of they local Tibetan that says the four peaks are the embodiments of four pretty girls who sacrificed their life for protecting Pandas, like national heroines, but beauties~ . In the fall, the leaves on the trees blaze in color heralding the coming snows of winter.

It's 220 kilometers from Chengdu, about five or six hours to reach by bus.

As well as Jiuzhaigou, Mt. Siguniangshan is also in Aba Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province, so you can enjoy your adventure there as crazy as you can!
