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

we went during the Oct national holidays so the crowd was expected. Even so the 4 hours we spent on the line was still a bother. The ride up in the cable car is smooth safe and takes a bare 8 minutes. We didn't stay up at the 4500 m level too long. If you like you could hike up... More

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
