Midui Glacier is regarded as 1 of the 6 most beautiful glaciers in China by China National Geography Magazine. It's located about 100 kilometers east of Bomi County, Nyingchi Prefecture, Tibet, upstream of Midui River. Midui Glacier is the world's lowest glacier as well as one of the three Marine glaciers in China. The southeast Tibet glacier is a typical Marine glacier, which has a 6800-meter high peak, 4600-meter high snow line and the terminus at an elevation of 2400 meters.
The magnificent glacier is formed by the convergence of two world-class ice waterfalls, each of which is more than 800 meters high and 1000 meters wide, sandwiching a stretch of lush green virgin forest. Midui Village is an excellent place for photographing Midui Glacier. It is surrounded by towering snow-capped mountains on all sides. The top of the mountain is covered with snow, the clouds and mist are wrapped, the mountainside is covered with dense spruce forest, and the valley is a whole green plateau. In the meadow, a small stream formed by melting glacier snow runs through the village and flows far away.
It shines with the snow light all year round. In addition, the scenery there is miraculous and fascinating. It is a place famous for its biological diversification. The county attracts many tourists every year with its glaciers, grand canyons, forests and geological parks.
Midui Glacier is close to the Sichuan-Tibet Highway, so it is very convenient to enter the scenic spot. Usually, travelers choose to drive from Lhasa to Bayi Town（400km / 7hrs), then head to Midui Glacier via Bomi County the next day. It takes about 20 minutes to reach Midui Glacier by sightseeing bus from the scenic entrance. Then go to the observation deck on foot or horseback.
