China is a vast and diverse country in the Northern Hemisphere. Counter intuitively, you have to head south in China to find the best ice climbing.
Sichuan province encompasses the beginning of the Tibetan plateau, which makes it an ideal spot for ice climbing in the depth of winter. Among the top spots in this stunningly scenic province is Mount Siguniang, in the Shuangqiao Valley.
The mountain boasts various ice falls that are perfectly suited for climbers of every level. Due to the dry and sunny nature of winter, it is ideal to climb up in the morning and get some great views out over the surroundings before the sun begins to set.
Outside of Sichuan province, there are also ice climbing opportunities in Himalayas in Tibet and the Tian Shan in Xinjiang. Of these two spots, ice climbing trips to Tibet are more popular. Again, counterintuitively, it is usually easiest to fly to Kathmandu, Nepal and cross the Chinese border by van to get to the best ice climbing spots.
During the ice climbing season, the mountainous regions in China are characterized by logn and cold winters, with plenty of sunshine, which makes for perfect ice climbing conditions.
Most ice climbing trips to China will begin with a flight into Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CTU), in Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan. Most guides will opt to meet you here and provide transport to the start of the trip.
