Approach


Bus drive from Chengdu/Xiaojin taken in Chadianzi Bus Station in Chengdu and get off in Rilong(8 usd/p.p).Local guesthouse (3-4usd/p.p)
Follow the same mountain trail(now it is much wider than before) as the first-sister all the way to a stream below the base camp of the first-sister(form there you can see the first-sister clearly).keep walking north by the hillside and after 50 minutes you will see the second-sister,after that walk up and try to find the highest flat grass lawn beside the stream.
That is the base camp of the Second-sister.
It takes about 5-6hour on foot from Rilong.
