Going at the top of Yulong snow mountain is not straight forward for self-organized and non-Chinese-speaking travelers :) Getting there: Take minubus 7 from Mao square in Lijiang city (two traffic lights from the north end of old town). Get there early in the morning. The minibus leaves whrn full (6 or 7 people) - this is annoying but for... More

From the carpark you are driven by bus or mini van to the long and impressive chairlift to be taken to the walking trail. A reasonably fit person can navigate this easily and there are spectacular views of the glacier when you reach the top. After being driven down you are taken to a large and impressive amphitheatre with a... More

If you visit Lijiang then a visit to Snow Mountain is essential. From the carpark you are driven in a shuttle bus then you catch the cable car up with stunning views and then walk through the maize of shops before you pop out almost at the top of the mountain. There is a large viewing deck with stunning views.... More

Beautiful scenery and lovely backdrop of the Snow Mountain, even when it is not winter time. Do make sure you watch the performances by the natives as they are really good and professional. I did not go in winter so it is kinda sad to not have some snow experiences. Nonetheless, regardless of the seasons, do make an effort to... More

Cannot leave Lijiang without visiting here. The mountain is very high. When I arrived, it was very amazing with the white view. All snow in everywhere. Have fun there !!!!!

The park, although necessarily busy with tourists, is spectacular. We spent 4 hours walking along the 4 lakes, separated by waterfalls. Even on a cloudy day with some showers it was well worth it, although we didnot see much of he mountain tops (and did not take the tram up there). We preferred walking over taking the (well organized) trams,... More

Pros: very nice glacier park & blue moon valley Cons: the atmosphere is ruined by the hoards of tourist, plus a 4 hour Q after the entrance. if u are not into any climbing (and therefore will not be able to make it to the top from the cable car terminal), dont bother going u will only see tourists. budget...

Travel up the gondola above the treeline to 4506m and then you can hike up the stairs into the glacier. Quite an experience. When you get short of breath, slow down or stop, breath in thru your nose and out thru your mouth. Oxygen puffer cans available for sale and not a bad idea at that altitude.
