Highlight in Lijiang

Cannot leave Lijiang without visiting here. The mountain is very high. When I arrived, it was very amazing with the white view. All snow in everywhere. Have fun there !!!!!

The park, although necessarily busy with tourists, is spectacular. We spent 4 hours walking along the 4 lakes, separated by waterfalls. Even on a cloudy day with some showers it was well worth it, although we didnot see much of he mountain tops (and did not take the tram up there). We preferred walking over taking the (well organized) trams,... More

Pros: very nice glacier park & blue moon valley Cons: the atmosphere is ruined by the hoards of tourist, plus a 4 hour Q after the entrance. if u are not into any climbing (and therefore will not be able to make it to the top from the cable car terminal), dont bother going u will only see tourists. budget...

Travel up the gondola above the treeline to 4506m and then you can hike up the stairs into the glacier. Quite an experience. When you get short of breath, slow down or stop, breath in thru your nose and out thru your mouth. Oxygen puffer cans available for sale and not a bad idea at that altitude.

We rented a taxi from the hotel for one day. She dropped us of at the bus station. We didn't go for the highest top. No need to see snow. We went to one of the meadows. We also skipped the show. First of all, it costs money to go there and it costs money for every attraction. So be... More

When I arrived at Kunming on 30 Mar this year, the airport shuttle bus tour guide discouraged us from going to Yulong Snow Mountain as she said that at this time of the season, there would not be any snow up at Yulong Mountain. Do not trust this airport shuttle bus guide. My journey up Yulong Mountain confirmed that there... More

Prior to coming up to the gondola that brought us up to the 4500 metre plateau, we watched a show by the Naxi people with 500 performers which was so impressive! I came here four years ago and this show wasn't on then so really glad i caught it this time! After the show, we caught the gondola up to... More

Snowy peaks, pine forests, and pleasant walking trails are a welcome respite from touring in the cities of China. The air was crisp, the tourists cheery, and the transportation via shuttles and cable car efficient. Reminded one of a national park visit in the US. The mountains are truly magnificent.

Good place to visit during trip to Lijiang. Very beautiful sceneries though a bit pricey on the cable lift (RMB$180 per adult). I travel with my family (2 adult and 2 kids age 6 and 9) to there on April 2015. It was a cloudy day and was snowing up there. The top was a bit cold there but my... More

A visit to the area is not complete without a trip up this mountain. It takes a whole part of a day and is also expensive but well worth it. The cold temperature, clear blue skies, fresh air and rarefied air plus stunning views makes up for the long trip and queues. The cable car ride was fun and quick.... More
