Summer trip to the mountains of Sichuan - June 24th to July 9th
Join us for a summer trip to the mountains of Sichuan, at the time they're at their best! We will see at least 6 species of Meconopsis, at least 5 species of lilies, alpine meadows of Cypripedium tibeticum and Omphalogramma vinciflora, and many, many different species of orchids, Primula, Arisaema, Smilacina, Souliea, Corydalis, Fritilaria, Polygonatum – including the two rare mountain endemics Heteropolygonatum anomalum and H. pendulum.
The trip will cover some 1800 km, and pass over 7 mountain passes (with trips to an additional two gorges), the highest pass will be on Balangshan, at 4480 meters altitude. We will travel in rented vans and/or cars the entire trip, so we're able to stop any time we'd like to botanize along the road. The trip does not include any difficult trekking, although 2-3 days will allow for optional trekking if you want to. Expect some light walking in uneven terrain at high altitude, with the option of taking a day off for relaxing several times during the trip.
