What people are saying:

This was my first close encounter with the glacier. Under Mt. Meri, climbing from over 2,000 meters to over 3,000, was very exhausting, but when I saw the glacier and the peak of the Cavabog, all the fatigue was gone.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
