Explore Yulong (Jade Dragon) Mountain, a snow-covered massif which looks like a jade-colored dragon lying amidst the clouds. Geologists say that hundreds of millions years ago this landmass sat beneath an ocean and in time it started to rise gradually, reaching the current heights of 5,600 m (18,360 ft). The holy and serene mountain shelters many rare animals, wild plant life, and primeval forests, as well as glaciers surrounding its peak. Hike through the chilled landscape, where nature flourishes and also adapts to altitude difference. Besides mountaineering, sightseeing, and exploring, you can also visit the Naxi ethnic minority to learn about their widespread legends and customs.

Yulong (Jade Dragon) Mountain reviews
What an amazing trip. Words cannot describe this experience. It is a must do if in Lijiang. We booked with a local tour company through our hotel. It was very easy. Get the oxygen canisters it... more »
The views at the top are worth seeing but we wish we would have gotten there earlier to avoid the crowds. We got to the cableway (it is very needed) around 4 pm and waited 40 minutes to go up and 30..... more »
We took a taxi ordered by our hotel for 200 rmb. Tickets were available with no problems. No long lanes to bus or cableway. Maybe because the weather was not so good. But up was really fantastic... more »
great day trip! not only for the "snow mountain itself" but the national park itself is just AMAZING, with the blue moon river part a great place! dont miss it and just go to see some snow :| the river is amazing! very simple to take a shuttle share taxi to the park but watch out of being scammed by none official shuttles. half price for students or people with random none english ID cards haha.
It's a beautiful place to visit. one of the waterfalls I thought it was really beautiful in pictures turned out to be a man-made one though.
Superb. A must go.
Beautiful snow mountains in Lijiang!
Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is the closet to Equator 365 days snowed peak. The Yulong mountain is at 4506 meter above sea level.Must see.Visit also the Blue Moon Lagoon and the Impression Lijiang Show. Timing is 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. The snowcapped Yulong Mountain is a sanctuary for rare animals and plants. We spent more than 2 hours on waiting. Experience of sitting in the cable car is exciting . They will provide oxygen bottle before riding. How to reach :- Take a cab to Hongtaiyang Square where there is a distinctive statue of Mao Zedong. In Lijiang, cab runs on meter, which is great for tourists. Fyi, within the city, cab fare is around 10rmb. At the square, look out for the parked mini vans across the road. These vans have sign boards indicating the destination. It only departs when full. Vans leave as early as 7 am, fare 20-25rmb, journey about 50 min to 1 hour, depending on traffic. Once there, you need to purchase the entrance ticket,'130 renbimbi' at the ticket office. If you intend to watch the Lijiang Impression Show, it is better to get the ticket first.
