I trekked to the sacred waterfall and it was life changing. a group of nuns saw me sitting alone on a rock and they all stopped in their tracks, smiled at me and started speaking to me in Tibetan. I was finding things difficult, and frankly feeling unnecessarily sorry for myself - I had a pulsing migraine, cramping all over,... More

We are a New Zealand couple in our 60s and we enjoyed Yubeng because it was off the beaten track, although there were still lots of Chinese tourists. We had a six hour walk in (no road), from Xidiang, having spent the night before in Feilisi, and whilst there were lots of mules for hire, it was very walkable and... More

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

Yubeng feels like it is closed to the outside world for the only road in is through a dirt path. The only way in is by hiking or by donkey. We rode a 4 hour donkey ride to reach the village.If you are fit and are not bothered by altitude sickness, hiking is best. The majestic mountains are so beautiful... 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!

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
