So beautiful as we were facing Meili Snow Mountain just right outside from our inn. Waking up every morning was a blessing. According to the locals, the best time to see Meili Snow Mountain in its full glory is during October. Sadly we went during May, and it rained for 2 days. On our last day, the fog cleared up...

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

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.
