Tours & Tickets
Aba (阿坝), a county within the jurisdiction of Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province, is steeped in Tibetan and Qiang folk customs. The organic blending of these highly characteristic folk cultures with the beautiful natural surroundings forms the basis of Aba's unique and abundant tourism offerings. Notable attractions include the Jiuzhaigou (九寨沟) Scenic Area, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, the Huanglong (黄龙) Reserve, and the Wolong (卧龙) National Nature Reserve.
Jiuzhaigou is located in Sichuan's Aba Prefecture. The place got its name because nine villages are located in this valley. Like a world from the fairy tales, Jiuzhaigou is renowned for its water landscapes. There is a saying that after visiting Jiuzhaigou, you will not see any better water landscapes elsewhere. In some areas of Jiuzhaigou, the elevation is relatively high. Some tourists may experience altitude sickness. When visiting, please do not engage in vigorous exercise.
Bipeng Valley is located within the Solo Valley in Putou Rural Area, Li County, Aba Prefecture, and lies at the northern foot of Siguniang Mountain. It is the ideal place to view the red maple leaves. Every autumn from September to October, this area is enveloped in a splendid red. It doesn't matter whether you cross the valley on foot or ride a tourist buggy, for both will give you unique travel experiences. In the winter, you can also enjoy beautiful views of snow-covered landscapes.
Located at Xuebaoding, the main peak of Laoshan Mountain, in Songpan County, Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture is the Huanglong Scenic Area. It contains the headquarters of Huanglong as well as the Munigou Ditch. This area is famous for its beautiful calcification pools, which are numerous, crystal clear and colorful too. There is all sorts of natural scenery to take in, such as forests, valleys, snow mountains and waterfalls. The spectacular surface travertine in the Huanglong Scenic Area flows in the original linhai, resembling a golden dragon taking off in the world, hence the name "Huanglong". The Huanglong Scenic Area is also known as the "Four Extremes" in for its pots, snow-capped mountains, forests and canyons.
Mount Siguniang, also known as “Skubla” in Tibetan, is a large mountain with four sharp peaks, and is the highest of the Qionglai Mountains. It is located in Aba Prefecture’s Xiaojin County near Rilong Town. The peaks of Mount Siguniang are covered with snow the whole year round. The mountain’s name means “the Four Sisters”, because the four peaks are reminiscent of four beautiful maidens shrouded in white veils. The scenic area consists of the four snow covered peaks and the three valleys: Shuangqiao Valley, Changping Valley and Haizi Valley. Tickets for Haizi Valley are sold separately. An excursion to Mount Siguniang for holiday is recommended to plan at least three days for your trip. (For a proper visit, each of the valleys needs at least one full day.) If your time is limited, we suggest you first go to Changping Valley and Haizi Valley, as you cannot see the four peaks from Shuangqiao Valley. Many outdoor lovers like to go hiking between the valleys and will camp out overnight.
