The Siguniang Mountains are located in Wenchuan County and Aba Xiaojin County in Sichuan Province, 235KM from Chengdu. The highest mountain is known as the 4th peak, very technical and standing at 6250 meters it dominates the sky line on a clear day.
However Dafeng is quite achievable for most fit aspirant mountaineers. It is a popular training peak and it see’s many successful assents every year. The snow line is quite high and the approach takes you through beautiful vegetation, snow caped mountains and lush green valleys. This diverse habitat has given Siguniang the nick name of “the Easton Alps”.
I decided that this should be my first snow peak to climb. So here goes.
I’ve done my first Snow climb and i’m very happy to come back and enjoy warmth. Just when i was getting comfortable with the cold, I had to come back to Singapore to be a soldier. Well, look out for my next travel adventure. Will upload more of my previous travels from previous years to come. For more photos, check out my facebook account at Jeremy Tong Zhi Hao.
I'm an aspiring climber from the tiny island of Singapore looking constantly at different places of the world, looking for places to exploit and fill up my adventure gauge which is always hanging in the balance.
I graduated from Republic Polytechnic with a Diploma in Outdoor And Adventure Learning and I believe that I'm a true advocate of the outdoors.
The first trip that I did was to Mount Ophir, standing at 1276 metres in Johor Bahru. The feeling of being immersed within nature and actually climbing to the top was just rejuvenating. From then since, I've climbed a total of 41 mountains around the world, highest being Mount Everest South Summit at 8700m and two 7000m peaks called Lenin Peak and Peak Korzhenescaya.
Currently, I'm managing sales and marketing at a rock-climbing company and forming my own adventure company, JTrace, focusing on adventure trips consultation, training clients for their own Everest, corporate team building, inspirational speaking sessions and brand ambassadorship.
