Gawa Gapu Snow Mountain in Gongshan County, Nujiang

As the main peak of Gaoligong Mountains, Gawa Gapu, meaning tall mountain, is located in the west of Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan province. It is the highest of the top ten holy mountains in Bingzhongluo as well as in Nujiang Prefecture. There are permanent snow, modern glaciers, ice erosion lake, etc.

Historically, it has been one of the most isolated and inaccessible parts of China, so the landscape is natural and unspoiled. At the foot of the snow mountain are the villages of the Dulong and Nu ethnic groups. From Bingzhongluo to Gawa Gapu Snow Mountain, one needs to hike about 3 hours.
