We trekked from Xidang to upper yubeng which was extremely tiring for begginer trekkers but felt great once we accomplished. it is all through the forest which is my only criticism as you miss out on the beautiful views, Also, i was not prepared for the altitude and suffered with altitude sickness once we reached the hostel. The trek back... More

If you are considering doing this trip don't consider just do it, this place is just stunning. My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights total there, 2 nights in Lower Yubeng Village and 2 nights Upper Yubeng Village. We did 3 of the hikes: Sacred Waterfall, Ice Lake and Secret/Holy Lake, with both the lakes being our favourite. It was... More

The start of the trail is from Xidang Village which is 1 1/2 hours from Feilai Temple. Is easy to find a shared mini van from in front of the temple, esp just after sun rise. Usual price is around CNY150 (as at April 2014) for the entire van, split amongst all passengers.

Second visit to Yubeng village. The first time in summer time. It is all green and wild flowers. This time is in winter. Heavy snow on its way. Waterfall is frozen and dripping down as ice. Looks clean and holy. We met a couple of Tibetan family to pray in front of the waterfall. The great nature for them is... More

This place is great - dont miss it!! Here some useful details: To get there you need to take a bus from Shangri-la to Deqin (6 hours, 67 yuan pp). From Deqin it's recomended to go to Felaisi (10 min bus, 5 yuan pp). Spend the night in this lovely place. In the morning take a 7 sits minivan to... More

2nd, Aug., 2013 We took minibus to Xidang village which is the nearest place to Yubeng village. It will take you 6-7 hours to trek uphill 12km and then downhill 8km from Xidang to Yubeng. You will see 104 telegraph poles along the way. But if rent mules, it just needs 4 hours, about 550rmb. The mule man helped us... More

Took a month long holiday in China. As I went with my 5yr old boy & large backpack, we took 2 mules to carry us up to Yubeng. Somehow the 'anti-selection' of customer to mules separated us into different batches which lead to my son riding alone abt 15min back with different rest stop for the 3hrs journey. Pissed me...

u need 7-8 hour walk to get there. but it is worth trip. Yubeng has upper part and lower part. from lower village, u cant see Kawa Karpo, highest peak, but its good basecamp to go to Sheng-pu, waterfall og gods. upper village is basecamp for Ice Lake, bottom of Kawa Karpo.

Yubeng is the place you have to go if you are in Shangrila/Deqin! Most people will head to Deqin/Feilaisi for the views of Meili Snow mountain, but do take the 2-3 days to hike to Yubeng! The hike to yubeng is interesting and even though we didn't have enough time to do the day hikes from yubeng to the sacred... More
