 Meili100 Endurance Race will be a rewarding journey that you will never forget


THE MOUNTAINS

Here you'll witness the most spectacular snow-capped mountains, sterching hundreds of miles of snowy peaks, with the lower mountains covered with dense shrubs and forests, lush, green with vibrant colors matched against the snow covered peaks. National Geographic magazine listed it as one of the last pure lands in the world.

Through the MeiLi100 Endurance Race we celebrate these fable lands of majestic MeiLi Snow Mountains, or Kawagarbo Mountains as it is known by local residents and pilgrims, part of the grand Himalayan Mountain range. The highest mountain peaks in Yunnan Province of China.


KAWAGARBO 

As it is known by local residents and pilgrims, or Kawagebo Peak , is the highest mountain in the Chinese province of Yunnan.


It is located on the border between Deqin County, Yunnan, and the counties of Zogang and Zayü of the Tibet Autonomous Region. 


It rises about 20 kilometres west of Shengping Town the seat of Deqin County, which lies on China National Route 214. What is now Deqin County has been part of Yunnan since the 1720s, when the current border with Tibet was established by the early Qing Dynasty.


 Kawagarbo is one of the most sacred peaks in the Tibetan world and is often referred to as Nyainqênkawagarbo to show its sacredness.


Often when looking up at the mountain, you can see a layer of white clouds that sits on the lower parts of the mountain, resembling a white scarf around the mountain peaks. The Tibetans believe this to be the symbolises for hada, or khata, a traditional ceremonial scarf used in Tibetan culture. The Khata symbolises purity and compassion and is usually made of silk or silk like material.


Kawagarbo is a holy mountain, a virgin mountain, no one has ever successfully climbed to the peak. There have been several expedition attempts, including a group of seventeen Japanese climbers who were killed in one of the most deadly avalanche accidents in history. In 2001, the local government passed laws banning all future climbing attempts on cultural and religious grounds. As of 2010, none of the significant peaks of the range have been successfully climbed. It will always remain a sacred and holy mountain.


A PILGRIMAGE TO SHRINE

THE GREAT JOURNEY TO MIND

Kawagarbo is one of the most sacred mountains for Tibetan Buddhism as the spiritual home of a warrior god of the same name. It is visited by 20,000 pilgrims each year from throughout the Tibetan world  many pilgrims circumambulate the peak, an arduous 240 km trek.Although it is important throughout Tibetan Buddhism, it is the local Tibetans that are the day-to-day guardians and stewards of Kawagarbo, both the deity and the mountain.


The ancestral religion of the Kawagarbo area, as in much of Tibet, was Bön, a shamanistic tradition based on the concept of a world pervaded by good and evil spirits. Bön encompassed numerous deities and spirits which are still recognized today, and are often connected with specific geographical localities and natural features; the major mountain peaks in the Hengduan Mountains are thus all identified with specific deities. Kawagarbo is one of these. Since its introduction, Tibetan Buddhism has been the dominant religion of the Kawagarbo area, with followers of Gelugpa doctrine being the most common.


Tibetans believe the warrior god will leave them if human sets foot on the peak of Kawagarbo, making the ground unholy. Disasters will follow as they lose god's protection. Tibetans have also established a centuries-old sacred geography around the peak, maintained by religious leaders from local monasteries in negotiation with local villages. This sacred natural site preserves the natural resources and ecological health of the range.


The Kora is the Tibetan pilgrimage journey made to Tibet. Each year over 20,000 Tibetans make their pilgrimage by circumambulating the Kawagarbo mountain peak, as they do so they perform full body prostrations each step of the way. It is a strenuous 240km (150 mile) journey done on foot.  There will be many people from around the world making their pilgrimage in every year. Runners will run into Pilgrims, please slow down and share the path with respect. It is an honor and humbling experience to witness as they make their journey.
