Day 3 D3 Mt. Wawu Shan (Altitude3522m )
First day we will take cable cars to top of Mt. Wawu Shan. On the summit we will find Gray-hooded and Fulvous (amongst my top 10 birds in the world) parrotbills and the recently described Sichuan Treecreeper. Lower down, the mountain was alive with the endemic Emei Liocichla, Golden Parrotbills, the scarce Emei Leaf-Warbler, and unforgettable Lady Amherst's Pheasants. And we will had excellent views of the rare Rusty Laughingthrush, a stunning male Silver Pheasant, and a great view of a tufted deer—tons of great sightings. Tonight we will stay in a hotel located on the top.
The second ay we will keep birding in the forest situated on the mountain slopes, which give us a second chance to enjoy beautiful birds on Mt. Wawu Shan. This night we will stay in the same hotel located on the halfway to the top.
Day 4 D4 Mt. Wawu Shan – Kangding (Altitude2400m Distance310km)
Today we will head west through deep valleys and narrow gorges to Kangding after we climb over Mt. Erlang Shan. Kangding, with life and buildings in Tibetan styles, is the capital of Ganzi Tibetan Prefecture in Sichuan Province and was traditionally the gateway to Tibetan world to Han people’s society in the history. In this Tibetan town we may visit bustling Tibetan markets, talking to kind Tibetan people. We will stay in Kangding overnight.
Accommodation: Kangding Love Story Hotel
Day 5 D5 Kangding – Danba (Altitude1600m Distance138km)
Today head north to Danba via Wadan road. Today our destination will be Danba, a very nice town full of traditional classical Tibetan houses and castles. Danba is also reputed as Valley of Beauties. It is said Danba girls are most beautiful in the whole Tibetan world.

Siguanniang Shan is situated. Mt. Siguniang Shan is made up of four peaks above 5,000m, the highest of which is at an altitude of 6,225m with a snow-capped summit persisting throughout the year.
Accommodation: New Four Girls Hotel
Day 7 D7 –D9 Mt. Balang Shan Pass and Wolong
We will head above the main village to explore the mighty Balang Shan Pass. We will start early in the hope of finding Wood Snipe displaying over some of the higher alpine meadows immediately before dawn. Koklass Pheasant and Kessler's Thrush both breed close to the tree line here and while the former is elusive and difficult to see, we are sure to hear its unpleasant barking calls ringing across the valleys. With luck, we might also find a covey of spectacular White Eared Pheasants or perhaps even a Chinese Monal Pheasant. Continuing still higher we will spend a while around the summit of the pass that, at almost 4,500 metres, is the highest point we will reach on the entire tour. Small coveys of scurrying Snow Partridges and Tibetan Snowcocks are regularly seen on the screen slopes besides the road, as are Grandalas, the males resplendent in their cobalt blue plumage. Other high altitude specialities could include Lammergeier, Red and Yellow-billed Chough, Alpine Accentor, Brandt's Mountain Finch and Red-fronted Rosefinch. Targets on the mid-slopes will include both Barred and the mighty Giant Laughingthrush, while lower down we will scan the skies for White-throated Needletails. Nor will we neglect the mammals – the park boasts reasonable populations of Himalayan Marmot and both Blue Sheep and Takin.
