Four Scenic Areas in Diqing Rated “The Most Beautiful Places in China”

A recent survey conducted by Chinese National Geography magazine rated four scenic areas in Diqing, Yunnan “The Most Beautiful Places in China”. Yeah! The four areas are: Meili Snow Mountains, Baimang Snow Mountain High Mountain Azalea Forest, Jinsha River Tiger Leaping Gorge, and Lancang River Meili Gorge. They are also our favorite places as well. Alex was lucky enough to be able to spend quite some time in Diqing few years ago. He is still quite excited whenever he talks about the experiences there.

Meili Snow Mountains: Located some 10 km southwest of Deqin County, the mountain range includes 13 peaks, which also known as the “13 Prince Peaks”, all rising over 6000 meters above sea level. It is a holy mountain to local Tibetans. Its main peak, Kagebo Peak, is the highest mountain peak in Yunnan. In spite of many attempts to conquer it, it remains a virgin peak. Meili Snow Mountain was rated one of the “Top 10 The Most Beautiful Famous Mountains in China”.

Baimang Snow Mountain: Located in Deqin County, this natural reserve covers a total area of 187,977 hectares with the highest peak towering 5,430 meters above sea level. Inside the natural reserve, there are vast amount of azalea forests. Many rare varieties are growing in the virgin forests there.
