When descending at Maobilang Pass at another side of mountain, one can get the best panoramic view of Mt. Siguniang. In the afternoon, you can choose to visit Shuangqiao Valley of Mt.Siguniang by sightseeing bus or relax yourself by watching the opening ceremony of the mountain-worship festival. Generally, there will be lots of Tibetan style dancing and singing as well as some local folk tradition show during the ceremony. Stay in Siguniang Town tonight.

Day2 (29th, May): Experience Mt. Siguniang Mountain-Worship Festival

Schedule today: Mt. Siguniang (Mt. Four Sisters) Mountain-Worship Festival starts in the morning around 10AM at the Haizi Valley of Mt. Siguniang. The purpose of this festival is to memorize the Four Sisters who sacrificed themselves by turning into mountains to protect the locals from the evil spirit. On this day, local Tibetans living around would dress themselves the best and come to worship Mt. Siguniang, dancing, singing and putting on operas on the grassland. Living Buddha and lamas in the nearby monasteries will come to perform the religious ceremonies. Some other local folk traditions will be shown on too. So, it’s a good opportunity to get a full picture of this tribe of Tibetan here. After the festival, you can choose to hike the beautiful Haizi Valley or back to hotel and rest well for tomorrow’s hiking into Changping Valley of Mt. Siguniang. Stay overnight in Siguniangshan Town.

Schedule today: Today we will spend the entire day to explore the Changping Valley by foot, lots of hiking is involved, and horse-riding service (self-paid) is also available throughout this valley. Prepare yourself with some water and snack on the way because there is no restaurant inside the valley. If you choose hiking, today must be a tiring day, but the amazing sceneries on the way definitely pay off at end of the day. Most tourists praise that the Changping Valley is the most beautiful valley of all three valleys. Stay overnight in Siguniangshan Town.
