Went up Yulong (Jade Dragon) Mountain. Took bus up to cable car station then a long ride up to observatory station at 4506m. Nice view of all the mountain ranges and you can climbing 4680m. Recommend to do.

We spent more than 2 hours on waiting and queuing. Experience of sitting in the cable car is exciting . I think oxygen bottle is not necessary for me.

Often people mistaken this mountain’s location is in Europe. It’s understandable as this mountain looked magnificent and has a wonderful a crystal clear river flowing at its foot. It’s a must see venue if you are in Yunnan, China.
