Everest will make you get the opposite feeling.

4 Minya Konka

Situated in the Daxue Shan mountain range in the southwest of Sichuan (a famous place for your popular China tours), it is a sacred mountain to the Tibetans. There are different trekking routes around the mountain range, the most popular being a trek to the Konka Monastery. Since the 1878 when the Australian people studied it for the first time, many people have been trying to climb up to the mountain, but most of them failed.


5 Meili Snow Mountain

Meili Snow Mountains rise between the Salween River and the Mekong River in the extreme edge of Northwest Yunnan Province (best destination included in top 10 China tour packages). The holy Kawa Karpo (6740M), the highest peak of Meili, is one of the most sacred mountains of Tibetan Buddhism. It is still a 'virgin peak' for no one has ever reached the top. Thus, Meili Snow Mountain is a challenge for all mountain explorers from home and abroad.
