Climb Haba Snow Mountain   Tour Code:YUN008

Haba is in Naxi language. Legend has it that Haba Snow Mountain and the Yulong Snow Mountain are two brothers, the Jinsha River is flowing between them, thus forming the Tiger Leaping Gorge.

The Haba Snow Mountain domains 21,908 hectares, Covered with a vertical distribution of forests, for example a dense forest of firs, spruce etc, is rich in wildlife and plant resources.
