If you are wondering if you should visit this part of Yunnan, you definitely should. The mountain is wonderful and the hikes are unbelievable. If you like mountains, do yourself a favor and visit Meili Snow Mountain
Is worth the trip for us for this fine weather!
Is very convenient to travel from Shangrila bus station to Deqen. The journey is only 3-4 hours. I ask the driver if can extend to feilaisi, which is possible at Y5 only (return free if...More
In October, the sunrise was at 7:19, we went to our Feila Si hotel rooftop at 7 am, promptly followed by other people and drones. It is important to get there before sunrise to see the color changing and suddenly catch the first ray. For...More
Could be disappointed to visit during summer and rainy season, the snow mountain and Kawagebo Peak is covered in thick cloud and mist.
Seeing the complete view of the snow mountain and the golden sunrise is very much depending on your luck during rainy season.
If you don't catch the view then your best bet is to not turn around but keep going to Xi Dang which is the trail head to Yu Beng. It's about a 3-5 hour hike up depending on your bag weight and what kind of...More
Standing in front of Meili Snow Mountain range, I can feel the wonder of creation. We travelled & viewed Lijiang's Yulong Snow Mountain to Shangri-la's Shika Snow Mountain to Balagezong's Bala Mountain then proceeded to view Baima Snow Mountain & final destination Meili Snow Mountain....More
Stayed in a hotel across from Meili Snow Mountain. The view from the balcony was fantastic! As the clouds moved along, the various peaks were revealed. Sat and watched the majestic snow-capped peaks and glaciers all afternoon. At sunrise the following morning, the highest peak,...More

We travel public bus. For 7 if you want to go Yubeng too, then a private bus and proper tour better. Have a private bus for few days save on travel waiting time and can have more to do. Car and guide hire is on per day basis.

Umm just wondering about the bit in the middle from Day 3 on. You are going from Dali to Shuhe and then back tracking to Lugu Lake and then going to Lijiang. Days 13 onward you could look at Chengdu, Emei Shan, JiuzhaiGou etc and then on to Shanghai instead of going back to Kunming.

You can travel on your own in China, if you are a bit of an experienced traveller. But being a tourist, you are easily a target of people trying to over charge or not delivering what was promised. Especially in the big tourist places. Some are worse then others. Yangshuo/Guilin is the worst that I have encountered. Lijiang is better in that sense, but also there you have to watch what you do. In general, do not go for the first offer, bargain and be absolutely clear about what you expect...More
