Meili Snow Mountatin
The Meili Snow Mountatin
is seated at the west end of the Baimang Snow
Mountain, higher and more elegant compared with
the Bamang Snow Mountain. The local Zang people
(Tibetans) regard it as a Holy Mountain. Each
year in autumn, the Zang people come from far
and near gathering here for Hajj the Meili Snow
Mountatin. One thing we would like to warn you
is that climbing Meli Mountain could be very dangerous.
Several attempts have been made to conquere Meli
Mountain since '90, but all failed.
In 1991, a Sino-Japan joint climbing
team were very close to the main peak-Kawagebo
when it began to snow heavely. The team were forced
to abandon the climbing plan, and the whole team
died in the way of returning to No.3 Base of 5,100
meters above sea level, including 6 Chinese and
11 Japanese, which marked the greatest sacrifice
in the history of mountain-climbing in China.
It's until in July, 1998 that the frozen corpses
of the team were found.
The best season for visiting
the Meili Snow Mountatin is in the summer time
and it must be clear day.
