Introduction to Gongga Mountain (贡嘎山)

Gongga Mountain, also called Minya Konka, is located on the south of Kangding. With an awesome height of 7,556 meters, it is regared as the highest peak east of the Himalayas, and is the highest mountain in Sichuan Province. Minya Konka peak is a high snowy peak with narrow ridges. While wildlife on the grasslands have been deeply affected by the changes in Tibet, remote mountain peaks and valleys often serve as refuges of isolation where wildlife remains abundant.
