Four Sisters Mountain Peak One (5,025 meters), Peak Two (5,276 meters), and Peak Three (5,355 meters) Expedition Plan

 

Four Sisters Mountain Peak One, Peak Two, and Peak Three are located in charmingly beautiful Northeastern Sichuan Province.

Four Sisters Peak One, Two, and Three are great entry level high-altitude climbs for beginners. Peak Three is the most difficult as it presents some, but not any overwhelming technical challenges. Those who have healthy, good physical condition and hiking experience are welcome climb with us.

During the climb, our professional alpine guides will carry out the mountaineering training necessary to enable all clients to have the best chance of reaching the summit.

Once you have bagged all three you will have completed the Siguniang Hat trick!
