4.8
#1 of 10 in Things to do in Deqin County
Take a guided trek into Moirig 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.

  • To fly to the temple to see the sunrise and sunset, although did not see Sunshine Jinshan, but the peak when sunset appeared. Meili Snow Mountains really spectacular, far from feeling holy, beautiful and majestic.

  • It is plum snowfalls pile 香格里拉 district is famous for the Jade Dragon snow mountain in Lijiang, but from there further towards Sichuan but also as a symbol of its 香格里拉 says. Elevation seems higher than the Jade Dragon snow mountain, is not to climb on the tour. At one site, as a world-wide famous Jade Dragon snow mountain more than rank on is like. A beautiful snow capped mountains, as the Jade Dragon snow mountain ruggedness, you shouldn't.

  • Beautiful, magnificent, spectacular! It was well worth the 1.5 hours drive from Benzilan! If you haven’t been to Meili Snow Mountain, you can’t say you have been to Shangri-La.  more »
