About Bipeng Valley:

The Bipeng Valley has recently been opened up for tourism development, although little has been done to upgrade the area other than putting in a paved road and building a metal hut at about 3500 meters. The care-takers at Shanghai Zi hut, are local tibetan farmers who speak Chinese. Few peaks in this valley have been climbed as of fall 2005. This valley is directly north of the 4 Sisters Mountains (Siguniang) and passes connect Bipeng valley to both Shuangqiao Valley and Changping Valley.
