This was the worst experience with Chinese tourist attractions I've ever experienced in the past six years. Now maybe this would be different in the winter when there's snow, but the summer was not worth it. If you are wanting to go to a 4500m peak with a great view go to Shika Snow Mountain in Shangri La (石卡雪山) and... More

Visited the Spruce Forest and Yak Meadow on a rainy day. We enjoyed a pleasant walk on the mountain paths, and were delighted to see all the wild mushrooms growing there.

Lijiang is an amazing, fantastic and charming place to visit. But I do recommend people to try and see the Jade Dragon Mountain for a day trip. You won't regret it. The views, the feels, the atmosphere will be all worth the trouble. We went in February, Chinese new year holiday. The crowds were unbelievable. Luckily we came in early... More

Go to Lijiang's Mao statue as early as possible; get onto a mini bus (sometimes called Tourist Bus #7), it'll depart when full. Your driver will act as your guide and will do the legwork and won't charge for this service. Don't believe me? Then wait and see how he makes his money, surprise! You get your entrance ticket, your... More

At over 4600m AMSL, it took almost no effort to get up via the ropeway cable cars. Once at the topmost station, boardwalks take u up another 200m or so...together with 5000 other visitors mostly clad in the signature red rental jackets. Seems like a place where tourist go to tick off an item from the checklist. Give it a... More

Trying to keep costs to a minimum we took a number 7 bus ( a small blue minibus) from the area outside Lijiang Cultural centre, opposite the chairman Mao statue. We negotiated the fare down from 30 yuan each to 20 yuan. Note- unless you commission the whole bus you have to wait until it's full (6 people). We had... More

Looks really impressive from far but was quite disappointed when I reached the peak. Too touristy for my liking. Batches and batches of tour groups come and go. "Snow" actually refers to the glaciers since I went in September instead. Maybe there's really snow in winter. I suggest going there by yourself instead of joining a tour so that you... More

Pay attention to the fact that the "Yak meadow" is closed to the public since the road is under construction. Apart from it, the mountain, as well as all around it is worth a visit: The cable to the top (buy at least 1 baloon of oxygen for each person, don't spare), the moon valley and the area around the...

Jade Mountain is about 45 minutes by car from Shuhe Ancient Town. it was a sunny clear morning, hence we were able to see the beautiful snow capped mountain along the way. There was a long line at the cable car station,however, it moved smoothly n quickly. We needed to use oxygen can at the summit, which is 4506m above... More
