Meili Snow Mountain, Yunnan

Meili Snow Mountain (Meili Xueshan), also called Kawakarpo, is a UNESCO nature site located in Deqin County dividing Yunnan from Tibet, around 800 kilometers from Kunming, capital of Yunnan Province.

With 13 peaks over 6000m in the range, the main peak Kawakarpo ("Kawagebo" in Chinese) is a sharp snow mountain with an altitude of 6740m,which has never been conquered yet.Thirteen lesser peaks, each more than 6,000 meters above sea level, surround it.

Kawakarpo Peak looks like it's been covered in gold when the sun rises in the east, just like the British writer James Hilton wrote in his famous book "The Lost Horizon".

Humans conquered Qomolangma, the world's tallest mountain, a long time ago but no one has climbed Kang Karpo Peak. It's protected by perpendicular cliffs and a treacherous climate.
