After waiting for a long time, the tallest peak of Meili Snow Mountain finally revealed herself - Kawagebo at 6740m. The sight was worth waiting for. The following day, the clouds moved and the view of the entire Meili range was great.

I have never seen a peak more elegant and mystic. No wonder it's sacred o the Tibetans. The Mingyong glacier which flows of its flank is equally marvelous. Make sure your guide takes you up to Lian Hua Si (Temple) and not only to Tai...More
