Mingyong glacier is located in Meili snow montain national park area. So if you would like to see only Mingyong glacier, you still have to pay for the whole package, 228 RMB. Though, the entrance fee for Mingyong glacier is 78 RMB. Going up from the entrance took around 2 hours and down 1 hours. There are also a car... More

I thought it was important that I write and confirm that it was open today (Dec. 31 2015). Took a hired minibus here from Felai-si (300 yuan return with driver waiting for me), then had to pay 83 yuan to enter the park (I had already bought the 150 yuan general ticket), and then paid 75 yuan for a shuttle...

The road down to the start point for this hike from Feilaisi is closed. No one is allowed in or out unless resident. Not sure when it is due to reopen but please check ahead if you are planning on doing the trip.

Once you get up to Lian Hua Si (Lotos Temple) you understand what the raving is about: From there you get a spectacular view of the glacier as it comes down the flank of Kawa Karpo. Many guides try to save the trip up there and will dump you at Tai Zi Temple from where you can't see a thing... More

My wife and I hiked up 2+hours and we were rewarded with an awesome view of the glacier. The hike is a tough one, sharing the path up with the mules riding past, and it will require a lot of stamina and adjustment to altitude and slippery slopes, but well worth it once you get to the small village at...
