Sichuan has a surprising amount of great tourist attractions  thanks to its unique geographical location and climate conditions. The province is endowed with a wealth of natural tourism assets--plateaus, mountains, ravines, basins, hills, plains, rivers, lakes, hot springs, waterfalls, limestone caves and even danxia formation.

Sichuan has five UNESCO World Heritage sites, four biosphere reserves recognized as part of the UNESCO's World Network of Biosphere Reserves, 292 A-level tourist attractions, 27 national nature reserves and 14 national-level geoparks. 

Some of the internationally famous attractions include Mt.
