For hundreds of years, villagers here lived a recluse life under the Holy Kawagebo mountain, and there’s only one post road that connects them to the outside world. It is the epitome of real Shangri-La.

This is a sophisticated hiking trip upgraded from the previous Yubeng route. We picked the most classic and beautiful part with the best highlights of Yubeng, Starting from Xidang Village, passing glaciers, snow-capped mountains, waterfalls, primitive forest and pastures...

Grab your hiking boots and let's go for an epic adventure!

Tour Highlights:

🌟Yubeng Village is a Tibetan village at the foot of Meili Snow Mountain, located about 30 kilometres (19 miles) northeast of Deqin in northwest Yunnan Province. Yubeng Village at an altitude of over 3,000 meters (9,840 feet) is divided between the Upper Yubeng Village and the Lower Yubeng Village. 

🌟With an altitude of 3,800 meters (12,470 feet), Ice Lake is a dark green lake that is formed by the melting snow water from the Meili Snow Mountain.

🌟The Holy Waterfall is also formed by the melting water from Meili Snow Mountain. The large amount of melting snow water in spring and summer can increase the flow of the waterfall, making it amazing and spectacular.

🌟Feilai Temple is along the Yunnan-Tibet Highway. It is 40 kilometres away from Yubeng Village. Situated to the east of Meri Snow Mountain, Feilai Temple is the best position to enjoy the view of Meili Snow Mountain.

🌟Cizhong is a small village in northern Yunnan, on the right bank of the Mekong River not far from Tibet.

🌟The area is also conducive to beautiful hikes. Nature has not been affected by the industrialization of the country and thus offers travellers a natural beauty still intact.

🌟Balagezong Scenic Area earns very high admiration for the mysterious ancient Bala Village, hospitable villagers, holy snow mountains, plank road over Gangqu River, and precipitous gorges, especially Shangri-la Grand Canyon.
