We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Wenchuan Travel Guide

Location:
Wenchuan is a small town in Sichuan’s Aba Tibetan-Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, which straddles the confluence of the Min and Zagunao Rivers. It is one of only 4 counties that are the main location of China’s Qiang ethnic group – the others being Lixian, Maoxian and Beichuan.

History:
Wenchuan has been a place for centuries where ethnic groups overlap. The remains of defensive walls from the Three Kingdoms period (220-265 AD) and from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) are still visible on the hills above the town.
Further back in the mists of history, legend has it that Yu the Great, one of China’s famous ancestors, was born in this area, and a temple in his honor is situated near the Three Kingdoms wall remains.
Other evidence of inter-ethnic encounters are the striking watchtowers and fortress-like style of some of the local Qiang villages, built high up on the mountain tops, e.g. the three towers of Buwa village which can be seen high above Wenchuan.

Transportation:
Wenchuan is easily accessible by bus from Chengdu. Buses coming down from Jiuzhaigou/Songpan and from Hongyuan/Ma’erkang to Chengdu also stop in Wenchuan. All Chengdu buses depart from/arrive in Chadianzi bus station in the west of Chengdu. There are also buses going between Wenchuan and the main bus station in Dujiangyan.
Taxis out to the tourist villages of Taoping and Luobozhai should be about 40-60Y. Minivans can be hired for around the same price unless you find one with locals already heading to your destination, then the price should be about 10Y per person.

Hotels:
There are at several hotels in Wenchuan.
The International Travel Hotel: turn left out of the bus station area and keep walking until you reach a 3-way broad junction. The hotel is across the junction on your left. Twin rooms with shower and western toilet are about 240 RMB (with breakfast).
The Kaiyi Hotel: go up the main shopping street and cross the river via the traffic bridge in the centre of town, continue straight ahead and the Kaiyi Hotel is on the left at the T-junction. Twin rooms with shower and western toilet are around 240 RMB (no breakfast).
The Sang Ping Hotel: not far from the Kaiyi Hotel. Cross the river via the footbridge and keep walking straight. The Sang Ping Hotel is on the left at the T-junction. Twin rooms with shower and squat toilet are around 100 RMB (no breakfast).

Dining:
The Qiang are famous for collecting wild vegetables and also for their cured ham so it’s well worth having a Qiang meal – very healthy and full of flavor.
Another simple but good traditional food is small potatoes cooked in their skins and dipped in a chilli and salt mix. At the junction of the two main shopping streets there is a tiny cafe selling 'ciba' - Qiang potato dumplings in a wonderful soup.

Weather:
With an elevation of 1326 metres, Wenchuan County is located at the northwest of Sichuan Province.
The temperature of Wenchuan falls from southeast to northwest with the increase of the elevation. The Plateau area in northwestern area has a cold but long winter and a cool and wet summer, and the annual average temperature is 0.8℃~4.3℃.
The Plain area has a distinct wet and dry season. The annual average temperature is 0.8℃~4.3℃.
