Enjoyable mountains sceneries, BUT...
A lot of garbages, waste, plastic bags and empty bottles along the way. I hope the park management will be able to solve this issue soon, in order to preserve the initial beauty of the Park.

Bipenggou is a famous domestic tourist destination for red and golden yellow leaves, following Jiuzhaigou National Park. You need also take about 40-minutes sightseeing bus to the gate of Park. Entering in the park, you can choose to hike for sightseeing or take the sightseeing battery car for transfering. Of course, you can view more beautiful sceneries by hiking. It is the terminal place of treking from Changping Valley in Mount Siguniangshan. Therefore, you can view many everlasting snow-capped mountains in the park.

Bipenggou (毕棚沟) is a high altitude valley between 2000m and 5000m, 4 km wide and 45 km long. It has become an ecotourism resort, or officially known as Bipenggou Scenic Resort. It is located in Piaotou Township, Li County, on the northern face of Siguniang Mountain, about 198km to the northwest of Chengdu.

Autumn is my favorite time to visit Bipenggou Scenic Area, a time to see the valley blanketed with autumn golden hues, a natural palette, like a fairyland on earth. If you are in Chengdu, you are highly advised to make a day trip to Bipenggou from Mid-September through the end of November.

In Bipenggou Scenic Area, you will see virgin forests, plateau lakes, snow-capped mountains, all year round glaciers, alpine meadows, limpid streams and waterfalls. It is a piece of pure land with zero air pollution index. You may come here any time of the year : snow skiing in winter; greenery in spring; flowering in summer and golden colors in autumn.

There are three daily buses going from Chadianzi Bus Station in Chengdu to Li County ( 7:10am; 8:10am; 9:00am ) and bus fare 58-62 yuan. In Li County, then you try to share a local bus going to Bipenggou ( about 20 yuan per person ). If you would like to stay overnight in Bipenggou, you may stay at Bipenggou Hotel (Tel: 0837 – 6828666 ) , not far from the entrance to Bipenggou Scenic Area. But you still need to walk about 10 minutes to get to the Tourist Center for a shuttle bus going up to the valley.

Buying your entrance ticket ( 80 yuan ) and shuttle ticket ( 60 yuan) at the Tourist Service Center. Opening hours: 07:00 am – 5:00 pm. Line up at the tourist service center for taking a shuttle bus up to Shanghaizi 上海子 ( 28km from the tourist center) in the middle of the valley. Sightseeing around Shanghaizi, then you may take an electric car up to the Moon Bay (月亮湾), 4 km from Shanghaizi, almost the end of the valley open to the public.

Alternatively you can hike up from Shanghaizi to Moon Bay (4km). After sightseeing around Moon Bay, you either take an electric car back to Shanghaizi or walk down the valley to Shanghaizi ( 4km ). From Shanghaizi, you take the shuttle bus back to the tourist service center to end your trip to Bipenggou.

Bipengou is freezing in the early morning, put on enough warm clothes, and be prepared for the temperature change in the morning and evening. The most visited area from Shanghaizi to Moon Bay is located at the sea-level of about 3000m. So get ready for your trip and prevent altitude sickness.

Me and 2 friends visited the Bipenggou mountain in the Miyalou scenic area in Sichuan, China.
The site is very beautiful, with a long river you walk by, huge mountains with snow on the peaks, big lakes, lot of trees and nice waterfalls you pass by.

We slept in Miyalou, a small and peaceful village about 50 km from the site. There are 2 daily buses to Miyalou from Chengdu, 8:10 and 10:30 am.

In Miyalou there are a lot of hotels and they are pretty expensive, but after a short bargaining we got a nice room for 3 for 150 yuan. Just ask the locals about hotels and they will show you the way.
Getting to the site is not easy and there is no public transportation there.
We took the bus back to Chengdu(6:30 and 7:30 am) and went off at the junction going to the site (50 km from Miyalou) and then hitchhiked to the site.
The price for entrance is 80 yuan and you have to take a shuttle to the top that costs 60 yuan, but there is a student discount (25%).
In the end of the day, we hitchhiked back to Miyalou.

The site as I said is very beautiful, especially if the weather is good (we had snow and after a while it got sunny and warm), but there are a lot of Chinese tourists, so if you are looking for a place to be alone, this is not the place for you.
In the end, we had a great experience and a wonderful day, but take in mind that the time you put into getting to the site compared to what you do, doesn't always pay off.
I highly recommend going there if you have 3 free days around Chengdu and you are not searching for a hard intense trek.

If you dream about going to Jiuzhaigou, but you do not have enough time, Bipenggou is the best choice. It's called "the small Jiuzhaigou". Mountains, mountain river, small lakes are marvelous. Being at about 2000-2500 meters above sea level, you can enjoy seeing the intricate mountane curves, breathing in the fresh air. The weather in Bipenggou is another amazing thing, especially sudden weather changes. It can be bright and suddenly start raining. It's worth going there!
