The Meili Snow Mountain, with the highest peak at an altitude of 6,740 meters, and covered with glaciers formed thousands of years ago, has not been conquered by human. Dozens of splendid snow mountains in northwest Yunnan make the province a dreamland of tourism. The construction of the Meili Snow Mountain National Park will be completed soon.
