“Absolutely stunning”
Review of Shuangqiao Valley

A truly beautiful valley. Soaring snow capped peaks, waterfalls everywhere you look, green flower covered grasslands, lakes, and rivers.

I'd recommend taking the bus to the top of the park and following the boardwalk all the way down. We had the whole place to ourselves once we were away from the bus stop, everyone else preferring to take the bus which stops at various points throughout the valley. The only fresh food available at the time we went was Chinese BBQ and wild mushroom and gourd soup. Both delicious and not badly priced. There's also the option to buy instant noodles but if this isn't your thing take food with you.

You can walk the majority of the park in one long day (we did around 7-8 hours leisurely walking). As it was getting near to closing we were made to get on a bus by a park worker to the final stop before the entrance but by this point we had seen most of the best parts of the park. Do get out at the final stop before the park entrance though, as it's a beautiful grassland valley with a river running through it.

Note that it appeared that there wasn't a footpath between the final stop and the park entrance which would leave you walking down the road with buses going past you. Most of this last bit is in a long tight ravine without views so you're not missing out by taking a bus here. Also some sections of the boardwalk were closed when we were there. Heavy rain had caused the river to swell and damage and submerge parts of the boardwalk. You can choose to navigate around the barriers but do so at your own risk.

Shuangqiao Valley is one of the three parks here at Mt, Siguniang. They run buses in the park to drop you off at each "tourist site" and you get on the bus to drive to the next one. It takes around 4-5 hours to do the visit. It is a very nice park with great views of peaks and glaciers.

Of the two valleys we visited we enjoyed this one the most. It is Just 7 km from town. We flagged down a car and a local gave us (4 of us) a lift for 60rmb. (We got back to Siguniangshan town for 40 rmb.) On arrival at the park gate we paid 80 rmb for the tickets (half price for the kids) and a bit extra for the bus. Private vehicles are not allowed inside the valley. The bus took us to the top of the valley where there were mountains over 5000 metres and even views of a glacier. From there we followed the boardwalk down slope. With a 5 year old daughter we still managed to walk 5 km even at a starting altitude of 3850 metres. Saw amazing sights including Tibetan worship monuments, forests, mountains, alpine lakes, a crystal clear river, yaks and horses. When we ran out of puff there were bus stops where you could hop on and off this park bus and go to the various scenic spots.

It is much better than changping valley nearby. This is not a very crowded place, which is good for visitors. After the 2008 earthquake, the original road connecting Siguniang Mountain and Chengdu collapsed, and had not yet recovered yet. Tourists need to take a very very long contour. Originally 200km, and now 500km.

At the final stop of the shuttle bus in the valley, you have a good view of a snow mountain, which I don't know the name. You can walk around to see firs, yaks, etc.

In the middle of the valley (the shuttle bus will stop at some place for kayaking along the river), do not take the kayak, and do not continue on the shuttle ride. Do get off the shuttle, and walk on the trail along the small river. It is about 1 mile long. The landscape along the trail is stunning. Yaks feed on a very large green grassland! Unbeatable view! Must see!
