Meili snow mountain (Kawagarbo) PilgrimageHi,
Are you interested in the Meili snow mountain pilgrimage? Read on:
I'm interested in the Meili snow mountain pilgrimage. Approximately a 12 day circle around the Meili snow mountain one part is in China and one part is in Tibet. Lonely Planet says I need a permit to enter but getting the permit is ridiculously expensive because you have to go through tour groups that all screw you over. I called somebody who arranges guides in China and they said they could arrange a guide for me to do the hike but his price is a little outrageous as well (roughly 100 USD a day). They told me that I don't need a permit to do this hike because there are no checks, or potentially the checks can be avoided.
I have two options:
1) Find people to come with my girlfriend and I on the hike arranged by this expensive guide. If you are interested feel free to respond here or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our timeframe is sometime in May
2) Find a cheaper guide near Meilixueshan, potentially in Deqin. Does anybody know if it's possible to find a guide there that can arrange this pilgrimage for foreigners and charges a reasonable rate?
