The night sky in a panoramic view over a Buddhist shrine in Yunnan province of China. Despite the light pollution of Feilai temple, The Zodiacal Light and dazzling Venus appear over the Meili Snow Mountain on the left. The Milky Way from the Summer Triangle (left) to Orion (middle right) is arched over the sacred stupas and lights from the nearby county Deqin. At this place, thirteen stupa are lined up to salute the “Prince Thirteen Peaks” of Meili Snow Mountain. The Kawagarbo peak, with an elevation of 6740 meters, is the highest in this range and regarded as one of the most sacred peaks in the Tibetan world.
