Reference number: I_19923

From: £3005.00

As the hometown of panda, Sichuan is reputed as the kingdom which has an abundance of natural resources and various landforms of snow-mountains, grasslands and grand gorges. A trip to Mt. Yala is one of the most popular tours in Western Sichuan. Mt. Yala is located in a nature reserve on the border between Dartsedo (Ch. Kangding), Rongtrak (Ch. Danba) and Daofu counties of Sichuan province. It is the second highest peak of Sichuan’s Daxue range. The imposing Mt. Yala is snow capped all year round and one of the four holy mountains worshipped by the Tibetan people living in the area. The hike is a relatively even grade and will start from Danba area and gently ascend to Mt Yala’s High pass at 4216m before descending to Rongtrak. The gentle gradient allows the body to accustom to the high altitude, limiting the risk of altitude sickness.
