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

Departed 7:15am on a Chinese public holiday to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain from Lijiang. 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. Along... More

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

I was quite anxious over my trip up Yulong Mountain. Firstly, I am quite old at 56 years old and secondly, I have not been exposed to high altitude training or mountain climbing before this trip. Thirdly, I am also on medication for chronic hypertension, not sure if my body can cope up with that high altitude stress and thin... More

The entrance fee and various ticketing system were seemingly quite complicated here. We would be at a loss if it were not for our private driver/guide. We chose not to take the gondola to see the glacier, because it did not look that impressive compared to what we saw at the Canadian Rockies. It's also because there would be a... More

Good places to visit though a bit pricey (RMB$120 for the entrance and bus fee plus RMB$180 for the cable car lift). Nevertheless, still worth it. Need to also visit the Blue Moon Valley. In the same area. Very beautiful.
