Ya'an Bifeng Canyon, Ya'an
(4.6/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Follow the river through Ya'an Bifeng Canyon, and explore the visually arresting natural environment. Well suited for all hiking abilities, you can navigate dramatic waterfalls and terrain traversing a well-constructed walkway consisting of wood and bamboo. You can hike downhill from the main road and take a lift back up at the end, or you can just walk from the bottom to the top. Bear in mind that the route contains multiple staircases, with stalls selling snacks and refreshments stationed along the path. Bring along your camera to capture the falls and rock formations, and consider stopping by the nearby panda sanctuary to observe the strange, endangered creatures that live there. Take a look at our Ya'an tourist route planner to schedule your visit to Ya'an Bifeng Canyon and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
