Songpan County, Sichuan (四川松潘) Landscape

I recently took a trip to Sichuan province in China. The main attraction of this trip was to visit the famous Jiuzhaigou Valley and Huanglong. The most direct access to this region is by taking a short flight from Chengdu to the Jiuzhaigou-Hualong Airport in the Songpan county. The whole region lies in the Aba Tibetan Qiang Autonomous Prefecture of northwestern Sichuan province, near the Gansu border.

The main mountain range in this region is the Minshan mountain range. If the weather is good, you will get a spectacular view of the snow covered mountain range before the plane lands at the Jiuzhaigou-Huanglong airport. This airport is the gateway to Huanglong and Jiuzhaigou. Huanglong is 54km away from the airport. You will be able to get a spectacular view of the Songpan county and the Minshan mountain range on the way to Huanglong.

The following photos were all taken with Canon EOS 40D and Canon EF-S 10-22mm. You can click on the individual photos for a larger view.

  1. Hi Roland,

    Your photos are fantastic! Just wondering how you get such a clear view out the airplane window. Also, did you use a polarizing filter for these?


  2. just seen the pix you took, which are both relaxing and instructive, cos I am also an amateur photographer, love your pix.
