Mingyong Glacier

Mingyong Glacier
Besides pilgrims and mountaineers, Mount Meili also counts geographers amongst its admirers. At the foot of Kagebo Peak lies the 6 km2 large Mingyong Glacier, a rare monsoon maritime glacier that stretches from an altitude of 5,500 meters above sea level to 2,700 meters and stops only 800 meters from the surface of the Langcang River. A glacier of this size is rarely seen at such low altitude and latitude.

Trails to the glacier lead up from Mingyong's central square marked by a new chorten. After 45 minutes a path splits off down to the scruffy toe of the glacier. Continuing on, after another 45 minutes you get to Tibet Taizi Temple, where there is a guesthouse. A farther 30 minutes along the trail is Lianhua (lotus) Temple, which offers fantastic views of the glacier framed by prayer flags and chortens. Horses can be hired (RMB 60) up to the glacier.
