Known as the "Little Switzerland" of western Sichuan, Bipenggou combines high plateaus, glaciers, hot springs, gorges, and autumn foliage. Its unique landscape features towering peaks, deep gorges, crisscrossing glaciers, and cascading waterfalls, with a rich variety of wildlife and plant species. The natural scenery, ecological environment, and rock formations in Bipenggou are ancient and make it a paradise for travelers.

Bipenggou is beautiful in all four seasons. In spring, you can enjoy the blooming mountain flowers as the hills are covered with a variety of wildflowers and grasses competing for attention.

Transport from Chengdu to Bipenggou
Long-distance Bus: Another option to reach Bipenggou is by taking a long-distance bus from Chengdu. You can head to either Chengdu Xinnanmen Bus Station or Chengdu Ruitai Bus Terminal and board a long-distance bus bound for Wenchuan County in Aba Prefecture.

Private transfer: If you prefer a more independent travel experience and don't want to join a guided tour, I highly recommend arranging a private transfer. This way, you can have the flexibility to explore at your own pace and not miss out on the stunning scenery along the way.
