It's harder to see the full view of Kawagebo peak, the cloud covers most of time. sadly that I haven't see the full view yet, but I still stunned just by the view point.

If you are wondering if you should visit this part of Yunnan, you definitely should. The mountain is wonderful and the hikes are unbelievable. If you like mountains, do yourself a favor and visit Meili Snow Mountain

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.

If you don't catch the view then your best bet is to not turn around but keep going to Xi Dang which is the trail head to Yu Beng. It's about a 3-5 hour hike up depending on your bag weight and what kind of...More

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.

We travel public bus. For 7 if you want to go Yubeng too, then a private bus and proper tour better. Have a private bus for few days save on travel waiting time and can have more to do. Car and guide hire is on per day basis.
