Meili Snow Mountatin
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.
