Literally. Cos if u think u do need need an oxygen canister. Think again. We signed up with a tour package bringing us up at 280 yuan. Inclusive of entrance, cable car, winter clothes, ride there, lunch, tour at 蓝月谷 and ride back. Truly worth it. Typically the cable car and entrance alone would have cost around that price. So...

This was an incredible trip - I'm so glad we went! We went on a tour organised via our hotel in Lijiang and were the only white people on it. When the guide started explaining the rules in Mandarin, we couldn't understand a word, apart from when we think he said something along the lines of '.....and don't lose the... More

It's best if you can pre-book the cable car, as if you just turn up you may have to wait (some hours) and go as early as you can in the day as that maximises the chance of it being clear. You may not need the oxygen, but it can help, we definitely felt better for it, as did many... More

This was definitely an impressive trip... First taking the bus up the mountain followed by a cable car ride to the top. Once at the top, the views were spectacular! The clouds against the very blue sky with the snow covered mountains was quite breathtaking. You are up over 3,000 meters.

Beautiful sight. We had cloudy weather when we were going up but luckily the cloud dispersed and we had moments of blue skies which was incredible.

This was included in an APT tour of China. It is very much just a scenic spot high on the mountain, with access being by bus and then cable car. Would be an absolute picture in winter when the mountain is covered in snow.

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
