The ideal season for visiting the Moirig Snow Mountains is from October to May, the best time being late October, when the weather is fine and the air clear, providing high visibility.
Several spots are good for enjoying the surrounding scenery. The first is National Highway 214 at the foot of Baimang Snow Mountain, where visitors have a panoramic view of the Moirig Snow Mountains. However, the highway is narrow and people cannot stay long. The second spot is the Viewing Terrace of Wunongding, 15 kilometers from the county seat of Deqen. Visitors can enter Deqen from Shangri-la (Zhongdian) County along National Highway 214. There are 13 white pagodas, and the terrace is wide. The third spot is the Joss-Burning Terrace of Feilai Temple, situated in Feilaisi Village, 11 kilometers from Deqen on National Highway 214, the road that joins Deqen to Tibet. Local Tibetans and passers-by stop to burn joss sticks and pray for good luck. It is a good place to see both the sunrise and sunset. The Joss-Burning Terrace of Feilai Temple has become a popular tourist destination complete with facilities such as restaurants, bars and hostels. Visitors can spend the night here to enjoy the dusk and dawn. It is also a convenient spot from which to visit Yubeng Village and Mingyong Glacier.
