The highest peak is Yaomei Feng(Chinese: 幺妹峰; literally "peak of the youngest sister"), also known as the ‘Queen of Sichuan’s peaks’(Chinese: 蜀山皇后), standing at 6250 meters. It is also the second highest mountain in Sichuan Province. The first ascent was in 1981 by a Japanese team via the east ridge.Very few people attempt to climb this and very few of them succeed after that!

Mt Siguniang DaFeng (Chinese: 四姑娘山大峰or大姑娘山; literally "peak of the oldest sister",5,025m) is normally considered a pure trekking peak while ErFeng (Chinese: 四姑娘山二峰or二姑娘山; literally "peak of the second sister",5,276m) and SanFeng (Chinese: 四姑娘山三峰or三姑娘山; literally "peak of the third sister",5,664m)is more challenging as it involves basic climbing technique.
