What travelers say:

It's the Mingyong glacier here at Cavabog, which is said to have been formed for millennia, but it's been shrinking more severely in recent years. I went on a summer day, and it was melting and collapsing, and global warming was really big. First drive to the scenic spot toll office, pay a 40 yuan ticket, then drive in, come to the battery car, then pay about 80 yuan battery car fare, do the second floor of the scenic spot, and then start to climb the mountain through the plank, from the foot of the mountain of 2000 meters above sea level, climb 1.5 kilometers first, it seems to be to the prince's temple, There is an old lama inside, the whole journey without food, must bring your own essential dry food and water. Then climb 1.6 kilometers, all by perseverance, past the No. 2, No. 3 observation platform, close-up view of the Mingyong Glacier's small waterfall, is the melting water of the iceberg, and the big glacier, finally came to the Lianhua Temple at 3200 meters above sea level, where a young lama lives. Behind the temple is the viewing glacier, and the main merri peak kawabog.

Additional Information


Mingyong Glacier is located at the foot of Kawagarbo Mountain, the main peak in the Meili Snow Mountains. It extends from the peak down to Mingyong village at the mountain's base. Mingyong Glacier is also known as Mingyong Qia. In the local Tibetan language Mingyong means "stove" and Qia means "water melted from ice." From a distance, the Mingyong Glacier looks like a silver dragon surging from the sky into the Langcang River with great momentum. The altitude is low and the climate is warm making it a great place for hiking. On the viewing platform, visitors can experience the magnificent beauty of the glacier and Kawagarbo Mountains.
