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.

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Chinese name is YulongXue shan) is about 30 minutes’ driving from Lijiang city. The view of the massif from the gardens at the Black Dragon Pool (Heilong Tan) in Lijiang is noted as one of China's finest views, and part of Yulong Snow Mountain Scenic Area, an AAAAA-classified scenic area. An early start is necessary when... More

We spent a day going to Jade Dragon Mountain close to Lijiang, which turned out to cost more than 500 kwai per person -- very expensive compared with most other experiences during a fortnight in Yunnan. Access to the park was about 220 kwai each (although we were able to gain seniors' discount after showing passports), followed by 180 kwai... More

Very disorganised. But once we got through to the cable car and had the trip up to the 4506 metre landing the view was spectacular. Oxygen is a must to take with you.

We began our climb pretty early in the morning. You take a gondola up most of the mountain and then when it stops, there are stairs going up the rest of the mountain that you climb. Oxygen is very thin up there and they sell oxygen tanks. Take it slow and you should be okay. We didn't use the oxygen... More

First buy a can or 2 of oxygen for all members in town(save money), you will need it. Dress warm in layers so you can take off if you get to warm. This is a heavenly place, if the skies are clear the views seem unlimited. It is great from the beginning, the gondola ride up and down the mountain,... More

This is the perfect place to see snow! It was snowing pretty hard during the time we went and boy was it cold! For those who can't handle high altitudes well, along the way (it's about half an hour drive from LiJiang Old Town), there are many shops selling oxygen and they also have warm coats available. You can get... More

If taking old people up it's important to buy a can of oxygen and use it only when necessary it was snowing when I went up

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
