Mount Siguniang

Four_Girls_Mountain_1.jpg

Overview
Located in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, the Four Girls Mountain consists of four adjacent peaks, covered with eternal snow. Its name stems from a local legend that the place was once slammed by chilling northern winds and in order to protect the local residents, four beautiful girls turned into four peaks to shield the place from the blows.

"Four Girls"
Mount Siguniang encompasses four peaks: Daguniang Feng (Big Peak or 1st peak), Erguniang Feng (2nd peak), Sangungiang Feng (3rd peak), and Yaomei Feng (4th peak). The highest peak is Yaomei Feng (Chinese: 幺妹峰; literally: "peak of the youngest sister"), also known as the "Queen of Sichuan's peaks" (Chinese: 蜀山皇后), standing at 6250 meters. It is also the second highest mountain in Sichuan Province and the easternmost 6,000 m (20,000 ft) or higher peak on Earth. The first ascent was in 1981 by a Japanese team via the east ridge. Very few people attempt to climb this and very few of them succeed after that. The first ascent of the southwest ridge was made in 2008 by Chad Kellogg and Dylan Johnson.

The other three lower peaks are regular mountaineering destinations through all seasons. Mount Siguniang DaFeng (Chinese: 大姑娘山; literally: "peak of the oldest sister", 5025 m) is normally considered as a pure trekking peak while ErFeng (Chinese: 二姑娘山; literally: "peak of the second sister", 5276 m) and SanFeng (Chinese: 三姑娘山; literally: "peak of the third sister", 5355 m) is more challenging as it involves basic climbing technique.

Highlight
Mount Siguniang is famous for its beautiful scenery. The area is reputed to be the "Oriental Alps". Mount Siguniang National Park was identified as a UNESCO Heritage Site as part of Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries in 2006. The park comprises Mount Siguniang and the surrounding three valleys, namely Changping Valley, Haizi Valley and Shuangqiao Valley, covering an area of 2,000sq km.

As a nation-level nature reserve, the mountain is home to many species, including golden monkeys and black bears. It flaunts a group of scenic areas where people can go to enjoy some sightseeing, mountain climbing and other recreational outings.
