Hi Ramón,

Thank you for your inquiry! This is Victoria, one of the travel advisers at WindhorseTour, responding to you and I am more than happy to assist you on your Sichuan tour planning.

Generally, to climb Mt. Siguniang 6250m, you not only need to hold a professional Mountaineering Certificate but also need to hike with a certificated Mountaineering leader. It is super tough and dangerous, so we don't suggest our clients to climb Mt. Siguniang 6250m but suggest our clients to climb Dafeng (5025m).

Normally, August is one of the best months to visit Mt. Siguniang with very beautiful scenery, however, August is also during the monsoon season, it rains a lot and landslide happens in some cases.

More details, please kindly read over the email I have sent to you and for any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,
Victoria
