In the Changping Valley you group will be supported by pack horses but the hike over pass is too step and narrow for horses, so a team of porters will help transport the groups gear into the Bipeng Valley until pack horses can be used the other side. The last 3km of the walk will be unsupported.

It Is for me?
For the trek on this trip the general rule is the more preparation you have done for it, the more you will enjoy it. The climb is pretty strenuous as we walk through hilly terrain with our back packs and the temperature is often hot and muggy changing to -5 Celsius at the top of Siguniang (4 sisters). MMG recommend that you undertake regular aerobic activities in 3 month before you trekking, particularly if you are not in the habit of regular exercise. Walking, jogging, swimming or riding a bike are all good ways to increase your aerobic fitness, which will allow you to enjoy the trek to its fullest. This trip is advisable to join MMG organize training trip before join the trip.
• The time schedule subject to change, any change MMG will let participants know early.
• If the trip not enough people MMG have the right to postpone or cancel the trip.
