The Kawa Karpo (or Meili as the Chinese tend to refer to it) is one of the Tibetan Buddhism's most holy mountains. Every year dozens of devout pilgrims circumambulate the mountain and joining them on an 12 day trek is one of the most culturally immersive and scenically spectacular experiences in China/Tibet. Most of the reviews here confine themselves to... More

Meili snow mountain really justify its renowned reputation as The most beautiful snow mountain in the world. Definitely an attraction worth you spend one or two days there, treking around, visit the glacier, hiking to the Yubeng village, or just watch the snow and cloud in the cafe.

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

The journey to the mountains is NOT for the faint of heart due to the winding roads and dangerous sheer cliff drop-offs but what you see once you arrive will take your breath away. Plan to stay at least a few days to take in what the area has to offer. Trust me, you won't be in any hurry for... More

It was cloudy the day we arrived but lo and behold it showed itself in the morning after having the first snowfall on it - white glistening peaks and all! The mountains dominate the landscape and can be seen from most vantage points around Deqin... More
