Shika in Tibetan refers to a mountain abounding in red deer, one of the auspicious animals in Tibetan Buddhism. It is said when Sakyamuni began to preach Buddhism in the Deer Park, two deer listened to him attentively in knee-down posture. Therefore, deer stands for common people and is regarded as mascots in Tibetan Buddhism. It is the symbol of longevity and justice. So it is regarded as a holy mountain for the local Tibetans. #china #yunnantravel #yunnan #landscapes #mountains #shangri-la #awesomepic #unforgettableexperiences #travelinspiration #naturalwonders #backpacking #photographyheaven

In the local Tibetan language, Shika Snow Mountain means "mountain with red deer". Although it is called snow mountain, the rocks are exposed when the spring comes.
