What people are saying:

Winter to see the Yongming glacier is still very shocking, but the climb is really super tired, a few times hesitant to continue to climb. The viewing platform is the best, then if not very interested in the temple, there is no need to climb the last quarter, because the last steepest and most tired and the top is actually only a small temple, the view is not good below the observation platform. In addition, the shuttle bus in the scenic spot is expensive to charge 75 per person, and the last car to leave the scenic spot is more than 5 o'clock. It will make the trip more hurry. When it is almost the time, the scenic staff will call you from time to time to remind you of the experience.

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.
