Breathtaking sceneries of Four Girls Mountain in Sichuan Province  10:12, November 28, 2012


Located in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan Province, the Four Girls Mountain consists of four adjacent peaks, covered with eternal snow. Its name stems from a local legend that the place was once slammed by chilling northern winds and in order to protect the local residents, four beautiful girls turned into four peaks to shield the place from the blows. Just like four girls, the charming peaks are white as ice and pearly colored as jade, spanning an area of over 2,000 square kilometers (200,000 hectares) and earning it the nickname of the "Eastern Alps."
