Getting around in Sichuan (Jiuzhaigou & Emeishan)
Posted February 26th, 2013 - 7:25 am by from Heidelberg, Germany (Permalink)
I want to go to the Sichuan area at the beginning of March (2nd or 3rd). I'll arrive in Chengdu, from where I'd go around by train or bus. Mainly I want to go to Jiuzhaigou National Park (九寨沟) and Emeishan (峨眉山), but I'd be up for any other suggestions. Since I'm traveling alone, I'd be glad if I found some nice company to start a joint venture :)

Jiuzhaigou is a really beautiful place, and in the early spring it's definitely worth going there. One of the most beautiful landscapes in China! I'd like to stay there for ~3 days. Information of how to get there can be found here:

Mount Emei is also a great trekking path, where I plan to stay for 2 days. More information here: http://wikitravel.org/en/Emei_Shan.

If you're a fellow traveler who's also in Sichuan during that time or a chinese local who wants to visit these places, just give me a SMS or contact me via WhatsApp: 137 189 47 921. Right now I'm in Xi'an until the end of the week, and then I'd go to Chengdu by train.

I'm looking forward to meet you and enjoy some traveling and trekking adventures :)
