“Alles gut except the thick fog”

Hailuogou Scenic Resort
Reviewed 13 May 2013

In the valley you can spot the east face of Minya Konka and the stunning glaciers. But it all depends on weather. In late April I visited this valley. Although it was tourist season but there were not too many people: visitors avoided here because of the recent earthquake in the neiborig Ya'an, which acctually did less damage to this place when it happened than now.

There was a nice hotel at Camp 2 where one can also enjoy a hot spring bath. At Camp 3 there are two hotels, one golden mountain hotel the other one silver mountain hotel. A good place to stopover for the glacier walking and cable car riding although you can do the cable car riding to Camp 4 in one day from the bottom/stay low in Moxi Town where you can avoid the risk of getting AMS and also enjoy relatively better hotel and food.

The tourist site bus takes about 40 minutes going up to Camp 3 and the cable riding takes about 20 minutes. In tourist seasons, it may take a lot of time waiting for the cars/buying tickets.

It was all misty up on the mountain in the late April. I can't see nothing beyound 50 meters. It is the eastern face of Minya Konka, and the warm current flows from the east, this is probably the reason why it rains often. At the westface of Minya Konka, less rain but less options on accommodation and involes camping.

It is all depend on weather........if you arrived with a cloudy weather, do extend your stay.
Worth to go where you can walk on the glacier without a guide or glacier tools like other countries. The sunshine is very special where you can see the mountain in red color for a few minutes........depend on weather. The hotel management is very poor, do not expect anything although with star rated. Don't expect good food as well. Make sure you stay inside the park for the sunshine view.
