China’s Top Snow, Local and Holy Mountains

In its own special way, Snow Mountain draws a significant number of visitors and hikers. Snow Mountain is a sacred Tibetan representative and a holy yearning for people. The snow-capped peaks stand proudly in the distance, as if they are proud of something. The following are China's most scenic and well-known snow mountains.

Meili Snow Mountain

Meili Snow Mountain is a sacred mountain for Tibetans in the region. Every year, pilgrims from Tibet, Sichuan, Qinghai, and Gansu ride hundreds of kilometers to pay homage to the holy mountains in late autumn and early winter.

Meili Snow Mountain

Meili Mountain Range: This mountain range contains six peaks above 6,000 meters, none of which have been successfully climbed, and any further attempts have been prohibited since 2010. The main mountain, Kawadgarbo, is the highest peak in Yunnan Province, rising 6,740 meters (21,221 feet) above sea level.

Meili Snow Mountain's sunrise and sunset are breathtaking. The best place to see Meili Snow Mountain is near Feilai Temple, where there is parking and lodging.

Cycling and hiking: If cycling is your thing, you can rent a bike in Shangri-La and ride to Meili Snow Mountain. The road is rough and mountainous, making cycling difficult. The breathtaking natural scenery along the way, however, is well worth the effort. Hiking is also highly recommended in this region.
