Chengdu, Sichuan China
8 days / 7 nights
Sichuan Himalayas and the city of Gastronomy
Seeking out extra special places in the world and seeking strong connections with local friends has led GirlsTrek to deliver this experience in the Sichuan Province, China. It’s Tibetan heritage, high mountain ranges, food delicacies, and spiritual nuturing in the buddhist ways wraps each moment on this trip in delight. Spending the first part of the journey trekking the three valleys of the Four Sister mountains we experience breathtaking views of 6000+m peaks around us. A visit to the Panda reserve tickles our hearts seeing these gorgeous creatures, happy and healthly. A day trip to the famous Leshan Buddha, we witness a 90 year dedication of vision to chisel the worlds largest Buddha in to a cliff face and in the city of gastronomy we spend our nights in a luxurious hotel and time with locals enjoying roof top yoga, shopping in night markets and dinning in a local friends home.
