Yulong (Jade Dragon) Mountain, Yulong County

(550+ reviews on the web)
Historic Walking Area Mountain
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.
