The view was ok, but If you had been to NZ or already seen the Everest, you probably want to avoid this. Admission was expensive, crowded with local tourists (Dec is their off-peck period). When up on the mountain, saw a lot of rubbish (managed to "catch" and threw away a plastic bag before it flew down the mountain) and... More

Took a cable car up from over 3000m point to 4506m to view the magnificent mountain range heavily laced with snow. It was winter so it was cold and the air was thin. Going up over 1000m via cable car was already an adventure both upwards and downwards with fantastic views all around. It was literally breathtaking as the air... More

The enrance fee is quite expensive - you get to see a river that has concrete terraces to simulate rapids and is dyed blue. There is a big mountain with snow There are hoards of rude noisy tourists

Went there early December. Not much snow on the top of the mountain, but is still very cold. Temperature is around negative 3.6degC. So, make sure you wear enough to keep warm (glove, face mask, hat..). You can also rent the coat from the counter at the base before you take the cable car up to the top of the... More

This majestic mountain with its snow capped peaks can be seen from miles around. A trip to this area is not complete without a visit here. The only grouse is it is an expensive outing. There is an entrance fee for the park, fee for the cable car ride and fee for the coach ride to cable car. The coach... More

We were not so lucky the day we went. Weather was terrible. Still, the surroundings managed to be beautiful, when we could see them that is. We watched the show, but that experience was also disturbed because it was snowing hard still. There is a half price discount for students, otherwise bit expensive if you can not enjoy fully due...

Highly recommend visiting this attraction. It was beautiful, and well worth the money spent. DO bring your student card if you have one (it gives you 50% off the park entrance). Cable car a little pricy at 180RMB, but no other options. Although it was an amazing day... The park was difficult to navigate around and there were long lines... More

We had a group of 11 people and we all thought this was the highlight of our trip to Lijiang, Yunnan province in China. Make sure you take the tram car to the top and walk around. You can see the Glacier from here, as well as cllimbing the extra steps to get even higher on the mountain. When you... More

Going to the mountain is worth the trip. Amazing view of the surrounding country and the glacier. I had a bit of altitude sickness. I had to clear my head a bit. I glad I visited the top. Would I do it again no. But I would highly recommend the trip up.

Entrance fee 105rmb includes eco bus ride to the moon lake, meadows and cable car station to snow capped peak. You have to buy the cable car tickets (180rmb) at the main entrance because up at the cable car station, there are no tickets for sale. Impression show tickets (190rmb) can be bought at the entrance. Show times are 9am,... More
