Huge tourism infrastructure here and still unable to cope with the crowds. Expect to queue. Organise a special tour here with a small but regular tour driver in a small van/people mover. Dont self drive or go with a large group. There are plenty of small 5-10 people group operators in Lijiang who can help you jumps some of the... More

We took the gondola up the mountain to 4500 metres then walked up a walkway on the side of the glacier to 4680 metres (15,354 feet above sea level). Was a magnicifenct view of the peak and glacier and we were blessed with a clear blue sky. We recommend you purchase the cans of oxygen at a cost of around... More

The Glacier Park is breath taking metaphorically and literally as well. Upon reaching the Glacier Park after the cable car's sharp ascent one may feel a bit faint. The view is spectacular however. Be sure to equip yourself with oxygen canisters. Frequent puffs of oxygen will help you climb further steps to have even better view. Also important to climb... More

The trip to the top of Glacier Park cost a total of ¥385 (80 for the Lijiang city tax, 105 entrance, 20 for the park bus, and 180 for the cable car). That's super-expensive for China but well worth it. The view of the mountain and the glacier justified every RMB. At the top of the cable car is a... More

We had a beautiful clear day, and so the views were fantastic. Granted there is some waiting involved. You pay for the park entrance as you enter the main gate. Then at the park headquarters you can buy a ticket for the tramway to the top. Once you get the ticket, you have to go to the "Waiting Area" where... More

Joined a 1 day guided tour from the Tourist Information Kiosk in Sifang Street. We were each given a small oxygen can to be used at the mountain peak, if needed. During the bus ride to the mountain, the guided explained that one may feel sleepy and tired easily as the body is not use to the high altitude, and... More

I have another review that's similar so putting here some basics from that. It's nearly 15,000 feet at the top (4506M) so you will not want to do this if you are not prepared for altitude (like staying nearby for a couple days to get used to the altitude) or if you are in poor health. It is life threatening... More
