Be sure to drop by the Lanyuet Lake on the way up. The cable car up is smooth and safe. The view from the top of the mountain is simple one of the best view that I've had the opportunity to feast my eyes upon.

Came here in September but could not see anything as it was all misted out. Nevertheless, it was still a pleasant experience. Pictures on a clear day helps us to imagine what the view would be like. Spent our time climbing up the wooden stairs with two cans of oxygen. As the altitude is rather high, there is a good... More

It's so beautiful! Pop up once you're done with Impressions Lijiang (we watched the 11am show). Bring a can of oxygen (a small one will do if you're reasonably healthy) and get ready for a serious hike up. There is a wooden walkway so it's not treacherous.

We went here during winter, so it was really cold that day, around -4 degree Celsius. Anyway, it was a beautiful day with clear blue sky, we can see the glacier clearly, especially the Jade Dragon peak. The view was superb up there, we can even see the full view of Lijiang mountain area from here. To get to Yulong... More

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
