The beautiful place to visit. Mountain just like the painting. If you are in Lijiang, Jade Dragon mountain should not be missed.

This is a great experience however the crowds and queues are huge. If the mountain is clear of cloud you will see the Jade Dragon Glacier. Many sucking on oxygen here. However if you are fit and pace yourself with long slow breaths you can do without oxygen.

Top Tip - come at the end of the day! We went quite late, and took the cable car up to the meadow overlooking Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. My tour group was almost the only people up there, and we certainly took the last cable car down, as the staff closed up behind us! The views are worth going for... More

We went to the Yak Meadow to view the mountain and this was one of my all time favorite life experiences. There is a bus ride up and around a valley from the park entrance, past old rural villages and stunning scenery. Then you get to a chairlift. Although I don't like heights, this was a fine lift. The cars... More

The Yak Meadow (or MaoNiuPing in Chinese) is a lovely quiet grass field inside Jade Dragon Mountain (or YuLong in Chinese). There are only few tourists, as there's hardly any tourist agency tours organized to this spot in Lijiang. If you are from a mountainous place like Switzerland or Sweden maybe is not that gorgeous, otherwise, is really cool!! How... More

The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Impression Lijiang, Blue Moon Valley & Bai Shui Terrace are all located at the same area, with one main entrance ticket (RMB 105 per person). It would be very rush if you squeeze all scenic attractions within one day. Should you need to rush, you MUST begin with the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, followed by... More

We came here as part of a tour from a well regarded an international travel agent. Our itinerary said we would go to 4500m. In reality we only visited the spruce meadow at 3200m. You take a cable car up here and walk through a forest for 10 minutes till you get to a field. There is a wooden walkway... More

The base of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is a 35 km drive from Lijiang and once there, you will need to take a 10 minute cable car ride up to the Yunshanping (Cloud Fir Meadow) which is at an altitude of 3,240 metres. If you are prone to altitude sickness, it might be advisable to bring your own oxygen... More

Seems like a must do when you are in lijiang. Watch your RMB dwindle as you go up the mountain. This is what we paid: * car hire RMB600 (too expensive. Look for cheaper options) * entrance fee RMB190 * preservation fee RMB80 * bus fee to cable car RMB20 * small bottle of oxygen canister RMB68 * cable car... More

This is my second trip to the snow mountain. This time they have a newer and safer cable car system up the mountain to the 4,500m level. It will cost you about RMB400 plus to enter the park and take the cable car ride up the mountain. Temperature up there is about 2C midday in April. You get to have... More
