成都号称是中国休闲第一城,据说从飞机上都能听到搓麻将的声音。夸张地说不仅麻将多,还有茶馆多,火锅多,美女多。。。可是我们此行主要是去看四姑娘山,也许堪称大自然的美女。直线距离位于成都西北方向二三百公里,属于川西,靠近西藏和甘肃。成都平原是四川盆地的中心,东南西北四周都有许许多多壮观的自然风光,一次很难逛遍。如果有人想去西藏,建议先来四川锻炼一下,而不是去云南,其中自有道理。

Exploring a corner of Sichuan natural heritage

Chengdu city is the capital and center of Sichuan province, one of the most historical central area of an ancient China. Chengdu plain is surrounded by mountains, therefore geographically it's situated at the bottom of the great Sichuan basin. There are numerous marvelous scenic sites in every directions, often with various altitude between 3000-7000 meters high. For instance, famous Jiuzhaigou in the North, Ermeishan and Leshan mountains in the South. The highest snow peak is located in the West, while the most difficult roads may actually be found in the North-east or east, as far as Chongqing, which became autonomous city itself only very recent years, independent away from Sichuan.
Geologically those mountains must have been formed around 450 million years ago together with Mount Everest. Luckily, they all have endurable forests and lots of them have snow on the top as well. They have become Sichuan's natural inheritance/heritage.
One can imagine our mission this time is towards the West part of the basin, where there is legendary 4 peaks said to be incarnated from 4 beautiful sisters. We drive four wheel mercedes ourselves all the way from the airport, about 20km South-west of Chengdu, directly arrived at one of the hills around the legendary mountain in day 1. However, we only see one slightly sunny day during the next three days, it was either drizzling or cloudy. One will not be able to see the face of the 4-sister-peak if your timing is wrong, and we just had it. We in turn decided to go further towards the West, where there is another mountain area called Gongga, the highest peak there said to be just over 7000 meters. The weather wasn't too brilliant that day either, we were just about to reach the snow icy views before they were covered by cloud and fog.
The holiday is about to finish, we are back in the city in the last day, having some hot pot instead of spring water. There have been long stories to tell, yet let's keep them for the near future... Despite the huge basin, one may dream to have a thorough excursion like a fish if one have just more weeks free... At least, we had a glance/taste of it already.
