Jade Dragon Snowy Mountain – The Chinese name, Yulong Xueshan in Lijiang, which rises to 5596m is considered the sacred Mountains of Naxi People.

Meili Xue Shan (Meili Snow Mountain), lies north west of Shangri-la town, and is bounded by the Salween River on the west and the Mekong on the east.

The highest peak Kawagebo, “God of Snow Mountain” in Tibetan, which rises to 6740m is considered the most sacred by Tibetan Buddhists, and even holds an almost equal status with Mt Kailash, and remain as one of the “virgin” peaks to climbers.

Mianzimu peak rises to 6509m and is a striking part of the whole Meili Massif, being truly outstanding; one of the most graceful mountains in the world.

Yading National Park is a mountain sanctuary in the far south west of Sichuan Province, and a very important pilgrimage site comprising three peaks sanctified as emanations of the three boddhisatvas by the 5th Dalai Lama.

The south peak Jambeyang (or Jampelyang, Yangmaiyong) at 5958m is the avatar of Manjushri, the Bodhisattva of Wisdom.

The east peak Chanadorje (or Xianuoduoji) of the same height represents Vajrapani, the Bodhisattva of Wrath.

Finally, the north peak, Chenresig (or Chenrezig, Xiannairi) at 6032m, the highest of the trio, symbolizes Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Mercy.

These three sacred mountains in Yading National Park were first viewed by a westerner, Austrian-American explorer, linguist, geographer and botanist, Joseph Rock in 1928.
