To Tibo: Snow mountain
 
Known for the grandest view in Yunnan Province, Meili Snow Mountain is located 10 kilometers northeast of Deqin County in Yunnan Province PRC. It sits on the border of Yunnan Province and Tibet in apart of China called Shangri-la.

It's actually not a mountain at all, but a mountain range which includes numerous snow-clad ridges and peaks, thirteen of which exceed 6,000 meters. The most splendid view is of Kawagebo Peak, the highest in the Province rising about 6,740 meters (which has never been climbed).

I was there on a beautiful but very cold winters day. However the camera was not able to capture just how gorgeous it really is, you have to be there to experience the real beauty of the place.

Thanks for your interest.
