Travelling Around Sichuan
Buses & Trains
Travelling by bus is one of the best ways to get to the tourist attractions as you can also admire the wonderful scenery during the journey. It is also one of the most convenient as there are buses available daily to many destinations and counties. There are direct bus services to Aba County and Garze County which are available throughout the day. Therefore, reaching tourists spots such as Yading, Daocheng and Jiuzhai Valley are not a problem.
Travelling by train is also very easy, however there are many destinations which still cannot be reached by train. Therefore in comparison with buses train services are rather limited to several tourist attractions only. There are no direct trains to Aba County and Garze County so the only way to get there is by bus. Though for other tourist destinations such as Mount Emei, Mount Qingcheng and Leshan taking the train is quicker than buses. Also for visitors who plan to visit Tibet, taking a train from Chengdu is also a good option.
Hiking is also one of the most amazing ways to experience the beautiful Sichuan Province. We always advise that safety comes first on all hiking tours and suggest that you do not hike alone and should have an experienced tour guide with you at all times especially you are not familiar with area. Some of the best locations for hiking include Jiuzhai Valley, Mount Siguniang, Mount Qingcheng and Leshan.
For hiking with a ethnic minority vibe and great photography moments Yading Nature Reserve and Daocheng are always highly recommended. You can also tailor make a hiking tour to fit in only the attractions of your choice and here at China Tour Advisors we will take care of all the details for you.
