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

Excellent and awesome mountain view when you are able to reach the top of the man-make trails by using the Cable car. There's quite a few fees to pay so watch out for it. I am listing what i paid so you can make a comparison. 1) Van from Lijiang ancient town to Yulong Mountain Ticketing office for cable car... More

The view from the cable car to the top is picturesque, as someone from Singapore who rarely see snow, it is really awesome. However, some improvement can be done, like making a more nature trail instead of the wooden pathway, and AT LEAST LET US TOUCH THE MOUNTAIN SNOW! Some useful tips: Best way to visit the mountain and surrounding... More

you can take the back side chair to the icefields with a few stairs near the end or do the day hike on the south less stravelled side of the mountain. The hike is to nearly 540 meters with Lijiang City at near 250 meters. It take a full day with an hour or two at the top enjoying the... More

Though many aspects of this visit, including hiring a taxi (they're off the meter) or the cable car ride (at 200 RMB per person, its a rip off), are expesnive, if the weather is good this place is worth visiting. As with all tourist spots in China, the infrastructure is excellent and the facilities are good. After a cable car... More

Your trip to Lijiang isn't completed without a visit here. If you need oksigen tank do buy it at foot hill eitherwise you be paying for more when u reach the top. The only dissapointment is you are not able to walk on the snow as they is a walking platform however the view compromise on that.
