Meili Snowy Mountain, which is situated between the Nujiang River and the Lancang River in the middle section of the Hengduan Mountains, which is 20 kilometers away from the northeast of Deqin County, Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province, with an average elevation of more than 6,000 meters, is also known as the prince of snowy mountains.

Its main peak rises to a height of over 6,740 meters above sea level, shaped like a snow-white pyramid, looking scared, noble and solemn in the mountains. It's the first high peak in the entire Yunnan Province. Meili Snowy Mountain on the Yunnan-Tibet border areas has its main peak Kawagebo at a uniform elevation of 6,740 meters above sea level. The snowy peak with a magnificent view could merge harmoniously into the magnificent lakeside scenery.

The snowy peak rose straight up into the sky. You could catch sight of the primitive forest in full blossom on all sides and a flock of sheep on the village green as of white clouds almost always presenting in river landscapes. People are saying that there're about thirteen peaks with an average elevation of more than 6,000 meters in the Meili Snowy Mountain. Among which the most famous peak is Kawagebo shaped like a pyramid. And it's also considered as the god of the snowy mountains and it is one of the eight sacred peaks in the Tibetan-inhabited area.

Meili Snowy Mountain became famous worldwide for its loftiness, magnificence and mysteriousness. As early as the 1930s, some American scholars visited it and praised it as the most beautiful peak in the world. Meili Snowy Mountain is the most spectacular of all the snow-covered mountains ranges. Its snowy peaks stretch for hundreds of miles.

The local people in the Diqing Tibetan Autonomous Region left the real survival traces through all generations and had been becoming more and more artistic charming with its deep cultural connotation. On the south side of Kawagebo peak is the rainy avalanche waterfall, which is especially endowed with magic and capricious splendid scenes.

The alpine lake, thick forests, exotic flowers and unusual trees and various wild animals in the snow mountain are the treasure of nature that is unique to the snow-covered mountains. The alpine lakes are very clear, and are scattered all along the little mountains and the wooded hills of the forest among the snowy peaks. From the distance, you could take a look at its summit ahead of you, unknown, inviting.

If anyone tries to shout in the lake, and in an instant the echo came from the opposite hillside with great distinctness. It has one effect of summoning wind and rain, so passersby have shown some restraint of voices with a breathless silence. They're not willing to incur the god's displeasure. Rich and well-preserved forests are the real Buddhist conditions that are totally unspoiled and protected by Buddha's heart.

Unique glaciers and snow mountains in low latitudes, intricate and varied plateaus landforms, the plateau monsoon climate with clear drying and wetting while not clearly distinct seasons, all of these make Meili Snowy Mountain become the heaven for wildlife animals.
