Kagebo Peak

Kagebo PeakKagebo Peak is the main peak on Meili Mountain and something of a Mecca for Tibetans. this peak tops the list of the Eight Holy Mountains for Tibetans. Every year, thousands upon thousands of pilgrims from Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan and Gansu come here to pay homage to the mountain. Legend has it that the mountain is the incarnation of a Tibetan God who helped local people drive away evil. As a result, often enshrined on the altar in the mountain is the statue of Kagebo riding a white horse and holding a long sword. In October 1989, the 10th Panchen Lama came to worship at the foot of the peak and a grand ceremony was held accordingly.

The peak remains untouched because of its precipitous cliffs, frequent avalanches, thick fog and cloud, heavy rain and storms. However, many attempts by adventurers and mountaineers have been made to conquer the mountain. Since the first attempt was made in 1902, hundreds of people has died as a result of their futile attempts. At the foot of Kagebo Peak are the Mingyong Glaciers snaking from 5500m high down to an altitude of 2700m into the forest. A Glacier of this size is rarely seen at such low altitude.
