The Mingyong Glacier comes from Kawagebo Peak which is 6,740 mts high. It is the lowest altitude and latitude on the Northern Hemisphere. With a total area of about 13 square km, extends 11.7km like an enormous river pouring magnificent down the peak, thus forming a fantastic view.
Hiking 8km from ticket office, very enjoy.

Came during end of December where it was snowing, the path up to the first temple is easily accessible (took us more than 2 hours to walk up since we have a 11 yrs old who likes to stall and explore at every opportunity), there is a mini golf cart option if you want to skip the first part of the trail which will get you to the beginning of the climb which consists of about 30-40 mins of steps uphill (do wear proper shoes for this as the snow can be quite deep in parts and icy metal steps are slippery). Once you get to the first temple, you've reach the first open view of the glacier. As we started out the climb after 2pm, by the time we got here which was way passed 4pm, the temple was closed and there was hardly anyone here, so if you are looking to buy refreshments at this place or stay for the night, best asked the service counter for details before the climb.

My wife and I spent three nights in Deqin of Shangri-la County in Yunnan at mid-October, mainly to visit the Meili Snow Mountain. We were quite lucky to have fantastic view of the so-called “sunshine on Golden Mountain” phenomenon on the first two mornings, as well as a great sunset on the first day we arrived. However, towards the end of our trip, the clouds set in and there was not much to see on our last evening and last morning there.

On our second day in Deqin, we went up the Mingyong Glacier just below the main peak, the 6,740m high Kawagebo. From the Feilai Temple area, where our hotel was located, it took us a bit more than an hour by car to get to Mingyong Village, where we paid about US$12 for a ticket to visit the glacier. From the ticket office, we had to drive another 10 minutes or so to get to the park entrance.

Outside cars could not enter the park, and the staff advised us that the path up to the top observation deck was about eight kilometers for an ascendance of more than 800 meters. We could of course walk all the way up, or we could take the golf cart up to a departure point six dilometers away (for a climb of about 500m) and walk the last two kilometres. We took the golf cart, at a cost of about US$8 each.

The ride up was fairly smooth and quick, but the two-kilometer hike turned out to be quite a challenge for my wife, who’s suffering from bad knees. Even for a person in good health, it was not an easy climb. To get to the top observation deck, one could take the elevated wooden pathway running parallel to the old unpaved dirt road which used to be the only way up until a few years ago. The dirt road is still in use by construction workers and their donkeys which hauled heavy building materials up the mountain. If you want to challenge your physical capability you can try the dirt road – there are ample opportunities for you to get back to the wooden pathway. However, you may want to save your energy for the last stretch of the climb.

The wooden pathway was reasonably well built, but the two kilometer hike took us about two and an half hours, partly because we often stopped to take photos but also because walk up at high altitude area was quite an exhausting exercise. Along the way, there was no sign to indicate how far one had gone. Before too long, one would begin to feel frustrated that there was no end in sight.

Finally, we came to a small plateau where there was a Taizi (crown prince) Temple, a small grocery and a public toilet. There was also a lot of construction work going on, apparently for a visitor center or something like that. From this point onward, the climb became much more steep. We stayed on the pathway to ascend some 250 meters to the top observation deck, but most of the path was not shaded by the trees. As it was a bright sunny day, the temperature at the top observation deck was close to 30 degrees Celsius, compared with just about 15 degrees at the park entrance. In the end, my wife stopped at the lower observation deck without reaching the top.

I did get to the top observation deck, but the sight was not at all attractive. For one thing, the glacier shrinks quite significantly every summer (presumably because it is located in low latitude as well as in low altitude), and 2017 has turned out to be quite warm. This caused the glacier to shrink above the top observation deck so that one could only see a hint of white near the summit. The lower part of the glacier that one could see from the observation deck was mostly covered by dark-colored stones and rocks.

At Taizi Temple, the old dirt road continues upward to the Lianhua (Lotus) Temple at an elevation of 3,470m (quite a bit higher than the top observation deck at a mere 3,150m). Apparently, one gets to see the white glacier from Lianhua Temple, but by all accounts the climb was more strenuous.

All in all, I’d say the hike to the top observation deck was not really worth it as there was not much to see there. The climb itself was also not that interesting because there were limited opportunities for an open view of the valley – most of the time we were simply surrounded by lots of ordinary-looking trees. I’m sure the Mingyong Glacier shrinks a lot in the warm weather, though it may grow again in winter.

Mingyong glacier is located in Meili snow montain national park area. So if you would like to see only Mingyong glacier, you still have to pay for the whole package, 228 RMB. Though, the entrance fee for Mingyong glacier is 78 RMB. Going up from the entrance took around 2 hours and down 1 hours. There are also a car option that will send you to the base of hiking point, 75 RMB.

I thought it was important that I write and confirm that it was open today (Dec. 31 2015). Took a hired minibus here from Felai-si (300 yuan return with driver waiting for me), then had to pay 83 yuan to enter the park (I had already bought the 150 yuan general ticket), and then paid 75 yuan for a shuttle leading up to the trail head for the hikes. It's pricey, but worth it as a day trip and hike, especially if you are not going to Yubeng village.

You could skip the 75 yuan shuttle, but I wouldn't unless you are some sort of superhuman hiker. It's all mostly uninteresting walking uphill on pavement - save your energy.

The trail will take you first to the lower temple which as previously mentioned only has views of the lower, less impressive part of the glacier. If you continue past this, you have the option of either going up to the upper observation deck or to the Lotus Temple. Both have great views of the upper glacier. I think going to the Lotus Temple is more rewarding, but not easy (it's an additional 2.5km uphill). Getting to the viewing platform isn't a cakewalk either (a lot of stairs), but I would say its a little easier. I did both.

I didn't see any donkeys for hire. Probably because it's low season. So if you come out this time of year, be prepared to walk up. I'm in decent shape and did it, but I acclimated in Shangri-la/Lijiang/Dali for a week before coming here. I'm not sure I could have done it without the acclimation.

There is a toilet and some snacks to buy at the lower temple, but nothing else on the trail. There is no english signage, but there aren't a whole lot of options, and there's a map on the back of your ticket you can use to point at and ask for directions.

It's about 1 hour to get to the park, 3-4 hours in the park to get to all the viewpoints/take pictures/etc, and a hour to get back to town. So plan close to a whole day.

The road down to the start point for this hike from Feilaisi is closed. No one is allowed in or out unless resident. Not sure when it is due to reopen but please check ahead if you are planning on doing the trip.

The ticket for this attraction was 228 rmb that include 3 other attraction.The road to get here is scenic but dangerous in rainy season. There are some landslide along the way and there are still road construction after we across Mekong river so we should pass a narrow bumpy road for about 10 mnt. The journey to get here from Feilazi is about one hour. The hike from the car park will take 3 hours one way. If you do not want do the hike you could rent a mule that cost 200 rmb two way to the lotus temple. The path is very steep. There are some part of the path that too steep so that everyone should walk on a wooden platform. After lotus temple there still 10 mnt walk to the start of wooden plank path. There are many steps to get to the hihgest view point of the glacier. The view is amazing.

Once you get up to Lian Hua Si (Lotos Temple) you understand what the raving is about: From there you get a spectacular view of the glacier as it comes down the flank of Kawa Karpo. Many guides try to save the trip up there and will dump you at Tai Zi Temple from where you can't see a thing apart from the debris the glacier has left behind. It's more like a moonscape, all grey ground up rock.
Take a horse unless you you are really fit, the trail is very steep and the air thin.

Get up to Lotos temple and be stunned!

My wife and I hiked up 2+hours and we were rewarded with an awesome view of the glacier. The hike is a tough one, sharing the path up with the mules riding past, and it will require a lot of stamina and adjustment to altitude and slippery slopes, but well worth it once you get to the small village at the top with a quaint little temple.

Past the village and temple you get to platforms which take you further up, but the platforms are not well kept and in somewhat shoddy state. We noted missing and loose floorboards as well as a section that was hanging on steel cables as an interim to future repairs. Not for the faint hearted for sure.

At the highest point you will be very close to the glacier and you can almost feel it slowly melting away near you. The hike down took less time, about 1+ hour. You will have achey knees and legs the next day but what a great day it was! We went during the low season and less tourists were about which was great (but cold!).
