This mountain peak is 6,178 metres above sea level. It is covered in snow all year round. The mountain is used as a training base for the Chinese national mountain climbing team. It is also an idea location for amateur climbers as it is convenient to transport. Legend has it that Princess Huzhu, the second daughter of Xi Wangmu, had her home here.
