We were fortunate to be able to capture the sight of the snow mountains that day! Not everyone could view the mountains during this rainy season in June. Had to take cable car & buggy rides within the area. The sight of the snow mountain was pretty amazing. As we move uphill, there was this area where we were greeted... More

I had expected to be closer or higher up the mountain based on all the information about the cold and altitude sickness. After a very pleasant bus and cable car ride to the lush green meadow it was a gentle stroll around the meadow on a rather rickety boardwalk. It was interesting watching the Chinese tourists wearing local ethnic clothes

We have been advised by our guesthouse to go later in the afternoon to avoid the crowd. According to them the crowd may be lesser then. We were there early though. It was only 9am and there is already a huge crowd. We waited hoping they would disperse later in the noon but it didnt happen. Numerous tour groups arrived... More

The cable car ride is amazing and requires little physical exertion to get here. Snow mountain view is very nice and also the blue moon valley. To reach the snow mountain top, apart from spending a minimum 350 yuan (bus ride from lijiang + entrance fee + cable car fee), u need to be of average fitness to make a... More

Great view at the top! Too bad it is so expensive to get there. Typical Chinese tourist traps uggggh! China can be so bothersome that way. Anyway, from Lijiang old town, we opted to take the 7 "bus"/charter van located in front of the Mao statue. 20 yuan per person, fits 4-5 people. 180 rmb cable car plus 120 entrance...... More

After reading TA reviews, we decided to rent a car to self drive early to beat the queue. We were advised against doing so by the hotel owner. Thus despite the reviews, we took a tour package of RMB 500 / person for an organized tour. It ended to be the right decision because we were packing as much activities... More

Our 5 point review: 1. Located 30 minutes away from the Old Town, we came with a private tour arranged by some family friends, so our experience may have been a bit better and private (as well as avoiding the long lines) 2. Arrive early! We departed Old Town at 8am, when we got to the cable car, the line... More

Got a personalized guide/cheuffuer paying 800RMB for a day trip ( 2 places we went to) his Hyundai Sante FE. 40 mins is all it took to reach to the mountain base of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain from Intercontinental resort where we stayed.

The Naxi show is excellent with about 150 on stage at once in a very well produced show. It was in Chinese and we didn't understand a word, but the program had some English notes and we followed what was going on. Many portions were high energy and had Tibetan ponies racing around. Lots of beautiful costume changes by the... More

- Great : the blue moon valley - Great: all the views of the mountain and the yaks from the Visitor center - Forget the cable car ride to the glacier if you have seen snow before. Not work the wait or the ride or the money. - Honestly,the impressions show is now very dated. In my opinion YangShuo is... More
