Xiangre Ri Mountain

Lying at 100.3 0 E and 28.4 0 N, Xianre Ri 6032 meter above sea level, towers above the south of Shaluli Shan of the Hengduan Shan Range and the south end of Benla Shan. It is located in the boundary of the Muli Tibetan Au-tonomous County and Daocheng County in Sichuan Province, which is between the Shuiluo He and the Dongzi He. Three snowy peaks of more than 5900 me-ters above sea level stand close to Xianre Ri. The long-time erosion and corro-sion leave the rocks of peak ridge exposed, tooth-shaped, bolt-shaped or make it become precipices. With many natural caves and stone holes scattering in the rocks, many ridges and valleys standing side by side, the mountains rising gen-tly and the rivers appearing comparatively lower, all combine to produce flights of stairs. At the lower reaches of the peaks, the densely scattered lakes and swamps moisten the vast expanse of fertile farmland and pasture-land.

As the passage for the upward humid air current and southward cold current, Xianre Re area is under the effect fo the southwest monsoon from the In-dian Ocean and the southeast monsoon from the Pacific Ocean. In addition to that, the local circulain and foehn effect of the terrain help to form a valley climate which has salient features of dry and comparatively warm climate. The annual precipitation being 500-700mm, the months of June-August see the rainy season. Winter lasts from Nonvember to March of the next year when there is strong wind and few clouds. The best mountaineering season is in the months of April-May or mid-September-October.

The route line to the mountain. Drive westward from Chengdu along the Sichuan-Tibet Highway through Ya’an and Kangding to Litang and then south-ward throungh Daocheng to Riwa Township, the whole journey of which amounts to 706 kilometers. It takes about 20 kilometers to go from Riwa to Yadin at the north foot of Xianre Ri.

In 1989, Kyoto Mountaineering Team of Japan came for the ascent but failed. Up to now, Xianre Ri still remains to be a maiden area.
