Can skipped other places but this is a must go .. The cable car .. Mountain... Snow and people's... Scenery so beautiful, even not up to the highest peak. Impression show is a must to watch, set behind the mountain .. So exhilarating! The only cons is too many visitors .. Going up n down takes wasted lots of time.

Perfect weather allowed us to enjoy these high mountains. Walk the Yak's Meadows at an altitude of over 3,500 meters above sea level was a challenge, but the views were breathtaking. At the end of the mountains and the sun created a unique spektakt - see for yourself.

There does not seem to be really a best time to go there: we were told the tour groups arrive there by 8-8.30am when the cable car opens. We stayed in Lijiang for 6 days and noticed that in fact the Yulong Mountain tends to have less clouds in the afternoon. We left Lijiang at 11.30 and it took around... More

amazing view at the foothills, especially with the entire snow mountain as the background of impression lijiang show. Nonetheless, the view on the top of mountain wasn't so great.

We were fortunate to be able to capture the sight of the snow mountains that day! Not everyone could view the mountains during this rainy season in June. Had to take cable car & buggy rides within the area. The sight of the snow mountain was pretty amazing. As we move uphill, there was this area where we were greeted... More

I had expected to be closer or higher up the mountain based on all the information about the cold and altitude sickness. After a very pleasant bus and cable car ride to the lush green meadow it was a gentle stroll around the meadow on a rather rickety boardwalk. It was interesting watching the Chinese tourists wearing local ethnic clothes

We have been advised by our guesthouse to go later in the afternoon to avoid the crowd. According to them the crowd may be lesser then. We were there early though. It was only 9am and there is already a huge crowd. We waited hoping they would disperse later in the noon but it didnt happen. Numerous tour groups arrived... More

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
