Highlights

Trip is confirmed!! *
Siguniang Shan (四姑娘山), or the 4 sisters mountain is a scenic area with 4 stunning snow peaks mountain range; the highest peak (6250 m) being the highest in northwest Sichuan.

This trip focuses on getting to the summit of the 2 other mountains, Da Feng大峰 ( 5,028 m) and Er Feng 二峰 ( 5,276 m). This requires very limited technical mountaineering experience.

Da Feng is the more accessible of the 2 peaks and is popular amongst the hikers looking for their first non-technical 5,000m+ summit. Er Feng is slightly harder. If you only wish to do 1 of the peaks, it can be arranged.

As well as conquering these two peaks you will experience the local culture and trek along some of the stunning valleys in the Siguniang area as part of acclimatisation.

== Hikers who have done the main mountains around the region and not been to high-altitude mountains

== Looking for a multi-day hiking experience with camping

== Experience a non-technical 5,000m+ summit

== Snow, pain, challenge, beautiful scenery and fulfilment which one can only achieve when they reach both peaks
