Hi Sange,

Thanks for your inquiry! This is Anita from WindhorseTour.

Regrettably, Mount Siguniang hasn't opened to foreigners yet, and they currently accept online ticket booking for Chinese ID card holders only. But trekking is still possible for foreigners in Sichuan, if you don't mind changing the destination to Tagong or Yading.

I have just sent an email with the recommended itinerary, please kindly have a check and feel free to get back to me if any further thoughts on it.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards,
