Trekking to Hailuogou Glacier Park

Hailuogou Glacier Park is situated off the east slopes of Gongga Shan to form the lowest Glacier of Asia.

No.1 Glacier, Yihao is the main glacier which is 14km long and it covers an area of 16sq km. You can do a hike which will take 2 hours to reach to the No.1 Glacier from Belvedere. Though, it is not a tough climbing but because of the neglected path sometimes it is hard to follow the path.

If you are lucky enough, then on a clear day you can have a beautiful view and you will also pass through some lovely forest. The base for this hike is Waterfall Viewing Platform which is at the height of 3000m. From this point, you can have a look at the main glacier tongue, No2 Glacier - Erhao Bingchuan and Golden Peak - Jinyinfeng at 6368m.

The best time to go for the hiking at Hailuogou Glacier Park is from late September to November.
