What an incredible place. Deqin itself was nothing to stick around for, but heading out early the next day through the hills was a wonderful walk. Making it to Yubeng was as good as everyone else has said. Highly recommend allowing yourself at least 4 or 5 days to do the hikes around the area, and a day for getting... More

We hiked in through the national park with all the other hikers and it was a nice hike but a tad crowded. Coming down into Yubeng was like stepping back to a simpler time. Troubles seemed to wash away as we took in the beauty around us. We stayed in Upper Yubeng and really enjoyed the views through the cracks... More

This place is so amazing. After my 5-hours walk from Ninong, I arrive the village. It greets me with yellow & red leaves in Autumn, plus the snow mountains at the top of view. I spent 3 days and a half here. It is so peaceful. From here you can walk up to many amazing attractions e.g. Glacial Lake. Tashi... More

It takes quite a hike (1100meters up + 600 meters down) to get to the village, but once you're there you are surrounded with peaks of glaciars, and it's a good base from day trips to the glacier lake and the sacred waterfall.

From xidang village, it takes about 6 hours to trekking. The highest place is about 3900m, but the village is very beautiful and special, if you get time, also go to the waterfall and ice lake. It would be a unforgettable experience of your travel.

Scenic trekking path, the view up there was amazing, definitely worth the effort to trek all the way up. The only thing is ..... don't expect much from the village hotels.

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
