Meili Snow Mountain, Deqin County

4.7
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Deqin County
Take a guided trek into Meili Snow Mountain, a mountain range featuring sweeping views of snow-covered peaks. The highest of its 13 snow-clad summits stands at 6,740 m (22,110 ft); the most sacred of all mountains for Tibetan Buddhists, it has never been conquered by humans. Several hiking routes have been developed through the range, but you should only approach these with a guide. Some 15 km (9.3 mi) away from Deqin on the national highway, the Wunongding observation deck provides a convenient spot to view the mountains. Four kilometers (2.5 mi) down the road, you can get clifftop accommodations in the village of Feilaisi, the starting point for all pilgrimage and hiking routes.
