The Xiling Snow Mountains are in Dayi County in western Chengdu and cover a large area of nearly 500, and part of the area is open to tourists who come to see the magnificent peaks and alpine scenes (the highest spot in Chengdu, 5, 364 meters above the sea level, is within the area).
The skiing resort of Xiling Snow Mountains is the most popular spot for winter sports in southern China and attracts tens of thousands of visitors every year.

Xiling Snow Mountain features snowy peaks, a sunrise over the clouds and sea, valleys, primitive thick forests, cascading waterfalls and natural caves — all coming together to form the image depicted in Chinese paintings.

Looking out into the distance, Du Fu, the poem sage of the Tang Dynasty wrote the following poem lines for Xiling Snow Mountain during his residency in the Thatched Cottage: “Snow accumulated through thousands years on the Xiling Snow Mountains could be viewed within a glance from the window. While ships from the Eastern-Wu State of miles away, are anchoring in the dock outside the house then”. It is just for this poem that Xiling Snow Mountain got its name.

The traffic from Chengdu to Xiling Snow Mountain is very convenient. Starting from Chengdu, you can arrive at Flying Water, a scenic spot of Front Xiling Snow Mountain in less than two hours, and arrive at the skiing field in about two hours. Situated in a three-dimentional temperature zone, the Xiling scenic spot is suitable for traveling in all seasons.
