I've posted a lengthy review of the Meili Snow Mountains which includes comments on Upper & Lower Yubeng. The hiking has great potential but the accommodation is some of the worst I've ever stayed in. That's why I give Yubenf 2 stars. Basic is fine: dirty is not, and both places we stayed in (Guanging GH in Upper, Shenpu GH... More

If you like to trek and you gonna be in China you have to check Yubeng village. it's not that easy to get there and you'll need to walk 5-6 hours but the view up there is worth it, the lakes, the waterfall everything about it is beautiful!

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
