Remote Sichuan Mountain Area

It took two trips over two years to put together a tour to the remote area of what I call the Danba Loop. Inhabited by friendly Tibetans it is located in Sichuan province and seldom visited by foreigners. I mapped out the area to include some of the most beautiful areas of the mountains over 6 days gradually getting up to 12,000 feet. There are some small towns with modern hotels like Danba and Kangding but also many Tibetan villages where you may stay in a private home and experience first hand the life of these wonderful friendly people. Along the way you will visit Temples, one of which has 24 ct. gold leaf on the outside that shines in the sun and can be seen from miles around. Another area has a wonderful park with a cable car that will take you up into the snow topped mountain and later at the foot of the mountain to a fantastic Hot Springs to soak as you like in 5 different pools. Check out my web site at and go to my Packaged Tours and click on the Ecological Tours. Click on the itinerary to see the details. This and many other tours can be included either in parts or in whole to a private custom tour just for you to your interests. Tours to China is my business; but the culture is my passion.
