Sun Valley (Chinese: 日光峡谷; pinyin: Rì guāng xiá gǔ) is a 1996 Chinese film directed by He Ping. Along with his film, Swordsmen in Double Flag Town, Sun Valley is considered one of He Ping's "Chinese westerns."[1] The film stars Zhang Fengyi as The Avenger, a mysterious hero who arrives at the eponymous valley to await his enemies.

Sun Valley was a Chinese-Hong Kong co-production[2] between the China Film Co-Production Corporation, Xi'an Film Studio, Media Asia and Huanya Film Corporation. It was He's first film funded by outside sources.[1] The film was entered into the 46th Berlin International Film Festival where it won an Honourable Mention.[3]
