Deqin is to the very north of Yunnan on
the borders of Tibet to the west, Sichuan to the east and
Myanmar to the southwest. At an altitude of 3550m, Deqin is
a small Tibetan town and the administrative center for this
remote region, 80% of its inhabitants are Tibetan.
The reason for coming to Deqin is to admire
the grand Meili Snow Mt. (Kawakarpo) and to feel its Shangri-La
mystique. If you can deal with the altitude it makes a great
place to hike from. If you can't then just hanging out in
town is also very rewarding.
Road out of town runs down the Mekong river
towards the small town of Weixi, the larger towns of Baoshan
and Liuku on the upper Salween or Nujiang river.
