Kawadgarbo is the highest mountain in Yunnan, China, meaning of“white snow-capped mountains” in Tibetan, and commonly known as “snow-capped mountains of God”.

At the first glance of the Meili Snow Mountain, thirteen peaks are like wearing white hadas to meet our group of guests from afar, very spectacular. Panoramic of Meili Snow Mountain, click to enlarge is much better.

Sunset reds the clouds

Unfortunately, the main peak was completely surrounded by thick clouds.

Until the night fell, Kawagebo re-appeared again.

Soon, the moon came out and the stars were no longer bright, so the trails of stars were not obvious.

The next day, it was no so lucky like the day before, the whole Meili Snow Mountain was covered by thick clouds.
