Like fall? Like mountains? Like travel? Here are 10 photos to make the case for your next destination being western China.

Every year, at the end of October and beginning of November, fall hits its peak in the mountains of western China's Sichuan province. From golden larches, snow falling low on the slopes, and the arrival of the dry season bringing stable climbing weather, fall is the time to visit western China. Here's 10 reasons why.

All these photos where taken during the first week of November at Mt. Siguniang National Park in China's Sichuan Province, around three hours drive from the city of Chengdu.
