Highland is always unpredictable... Missed sunset behind the mountain as it was raining with fog. Morning missed the golden sunrise shining on the Snow Mountain. Anyhow worth the 3+ hours drive from Shangri-La (Diqing County)

There is no doubt the Meili mountains has potential as a great hiking experience. But for various reasons it's not there yet. Particularly if you've hiked anywhere in the Alps, Dolomites, Yosemite, Acadia etc. It's an interesting drive from Zhongdian (Shangri-la) with some good views and hair-raising roads with sheer drops. The Great Bend in the Yangtze River (Jinshu) was... More

Proudly stands at the heart of Shangrila Yunnan, it is one of the holiest snow mountains in Tibet with a peak of 6740 meters and a pilgrimage history of over 600 years. It is worshiped not only by Buddhists, but also was a loving destination for adventurous trekkers worldwide. Tucked away at the foot of the holy mountain, is the... More

Such a beautiful sublime snow capped mountain range. Very high altitude with freezing temperature. Donkey rides are best mode of transport to enjoy the beauty of the place. Tea houses along the way to eat instant noodles and hot water is provided. No washroom anywhere - do it in the wild.

The Kawakarpo Kora is  one of the best treks in the world, but done by surprisingly few westerners. It is a traditional pilgrimage route for Tibetans, that involves a 150km trek around the sacred peaks of the Kawakarpo mountain range. The main peak of this range, also known as 'Kawegebo' or Meili Xueshan (beautiful snow mountain) is 6740 metres in... More

Meili Snow Mountain is one of the most sacred mountain of Tibetan Buddhism. Called Kawagarbo in Tibetan, thousands of devout pilgrims come here at the beginning of winter to worship and circumambulate the holy mountain. The mountain has over 20 peaks with permanent snow cover. We stayed at Feilaishi and had the best view of the mountain from our bedroom... More

Beautiful place to visit and enjoy the views. It is a bit of tourist trap with high priced foods and 4 star hotels that over charge and under deliver. But the experience is sun rise and sun set on the beautiful.

I came here during rainy season so my chance to see sunrise at Meili snow mountain is very small. But I am lucky , on the second day I could see it. It was amazing experience for me. There was a view point to see the sunrise. The tickets entrance is steep because it also include 3 other attraction. I... More
