If you don't catch the view then your best bet is to not turn around but keep going to Xi Dang... read more

Could be disappointed to visit during summer and rainy season, the snow mountain and Kawagebo Peak is covered in thick cloud and mist. Seeing the complete view of the snow mountain and the golden sunrise is very much depending on your luck during rainy season.

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.

Visited in November. Weather was perfect as rainy season had past, providing clear views of Kwargabo and the sister peaks.

Stayed in a hotel across from Meili Snow Mountain. The view from the balcony was fantastic! As the clouds moved along, the various peaks were revealed. Sat and watched the majestic snow-capped peaks and glaciers all afternoon. At sunrise the following morning, the highest peak,...More

Definitely worth coming a long way -3 hours by car from Shangri La. There are other snowy mountains e.g. Baima, Yuling, etc. I haven't visited all the others but this is really beautiful, having been to French Alps. We only did the touristic viewing platform,...More
