Trip Overview Itinerary Price Check Availability
 
Highlights:Panda Research Center, Tibetan Village, Sacred Buddhist mountain,Giant Outdoor Buddha, Jiuzaigou national park ,local language and culture.

When people talk about cycling in Sichuan , many think of the back door to Tibet, Emeishan, Leshan, Chengdu, Jiuzhaigou and trekking in the Songpan mountains. But there are a few other gems to visit and far less known then mentioned.The problem with such a country as China is that people always go for the so called "highlights". Those are the places recommended by the Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and other guidebooks, the places you see on Discovery Channel or read about in the newspapers. And of course they are more then worth a visit. But apart of those places there are lesser or even unknown places to be explored. When cycling in China, there are many such gems.

Traveling in Sichuan alone can take you many weeks, even months if you like, as this province is roughly the size of France, it's actually a bit bigger. This province covers an area of 485,000 kilometers (187,000 miles) and has the largest population in China, with 87 million people. Having said that, it doesn't mean you will find heavy populated areas everywhere.

In fact, the industrial areas are located in the eastern areas of the province: the flatlands. North, west and south west are mountainous and less populated.

You might not have the time to do such long journeys and have no time to cycle to Tibet but still want to experience some of the Tibetan culture. The good news is that Sichuan has some awesome loops to ride, even if you have only two weeks!
