Haba Snow Mountain
Haba Snow Mountain boasts glaciers, lakes
and waterfalls, and contains one of the best preserved nature
reserves in Shangri-la.
The main peak of the mountain is 5396m above
sea level and is capped with snow all year round. On the mountain
side, crystal-clear glaciers hang and the valleys on the northern
side of the mountain are dotted with numerous lakes, the most
beautiful being Heihai Lake. Each year between June and August
millions of azaleas come into bloom. One of the most unusual
things about this spot is that you can walk on the flowers
without crushing them!
There are also many waterfalls here. Tumbling
down the northeastern side of the mountain is Haba Waterfall,
also known as the "Great Hanging Water", which is more than
200m high and pours down with an amazing momentum.
The mountain is also rich in animal resources.
Yunnan gold-haired monkeys, rhesus monkey, wild boar and even
snow leopards, pandas and black bears inhabit this wild land.
Rare plants and medical herbs also thrive here, including
orchids, lily and Chinese caterpillar fungi.
