Sichuan Trekking and National Parks
Sichuan Trekking and National Parks will take you to the most beautiful places in the region. We will climb mountains, spend several days on horseback, meet and spend time with a nomad family, sleep in their yurt, and share a dinner outdoors and under the stars. This trip will leave us full of memories, as much by the encounters as by the landscapes we will see. Mystic mountains, crystalline lakes, pastures of Yaks … 13 days trekking through the mountains and national parks, discovering undiscovered Sichuan.
With almost 500,000 square kilometers, Sichuan is one of the largest provinces in China. We will find plains, hills, mountains, and plateaus here. Located in the southwest portion of the country, this province serves as a gateway to Tibet. Sichuan offers a variety of very rich landscapes with rivers, waterfalls, hot springs, lakes, ponds, and caves. Some sites have been made for tourists, such as Jiuzhaigou National Park. Several sites have been classified as World Heritage sites by UNESCO. There are about 50 species of rare animals. In Sichuan, there are 85% of giant pandas in China. Many reserves have been created for endangered species, including Chengdu and Bifengxia.
