Overview
What to Expect
Our team of head guides is fluent in both English and Chinese and we want to help change your dream of climbing a massive, glaciated peak into a reality! We look forward to offering you first-class service and technical excellence as we journey together to the summit of Yu Zhu Feng!

Yu Zhu Feng, altitude 6,178 meters (20,269 feet) , is the highest peak in the eastern KunLun Mountains and located about 3 hours by car outside of GeErMu (Golmud), in Qinghai, China. The climbing season is from May to October with the best time of year in July and August.

Yu Zhu Feng is an ideal mountain for beginners. The mountain has two climbable slopes: the north slope and the south slope. The north slope of the mountain rises from a wide flat plain that begins at 4,300 meters above sea level near the small village of Xi Da Tan. The north slope is good for technical mountaineers looking to practice their skills and also those hoping to acclimatize and rest at Xi Da Tan before heading over to the southern slope. Over the KunLun Mountain pass is the southern slope of Yu Zhu Feng at an altitude of 5,050 meters. The southern slope of Yu Zhu Feng is much more friendly for beginner climbers as the shape and formation of the glacier makes it an ideal place for first-timers and beginners to climb a high-altitude peak. The southern slope will serve as our playground as we set out for the summit of Yu Zhu Feng!

Although Yuzhu Feng is one of China’s accessible commercial peaks, still the amount of oxygen in the air is low and adapting to the high altitude is difficult.  Nonetheless, a high level of climbing skills is not needed and overall the mountain is very safe. Yu Zhu Feng is prime staging grounds for practice to go climber higher peaks of 7,000 and 8,000 meters.
