Qiyi Plateau closed for 2017
Jun 2017 • Solo
A potential visit made futile as the attraction is closed this year and will only reopen in 2018. Had planned to take the 2hr train over, and was informed that due to warming, the glacier had melting signs so the whole attraction is closed until further notice

7 1 Glacier
Nov 2014 • Friends
I visited this glacier QiYi(7 1 in English) in May 15 years ago for my first hike to a glacier. The glacier is at elevation of 4300 m or 12,000 ft .

The hike from base park to mouth of glacier (2kms?) took about 2 hours. for every 3 steps forward I stopped to catch my breadth. There is no climbing needed but tracking up a path that followed the contour up.

Many of the trip members complained about headaches as they ascend and feeling nauseous and gave up after walking 0.2km.

We were not well prepared wearing only sport shoes. If we have snow shoes, we would have been able to walk into the glacier.

This hike is not for the unfit and you need to walk 2km up the mountain to see the glacier. Don t try if you are unfit or have high blood pressure or heart problems .
