Yulong (Jade Dragon) Mountain, Yulong County

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.

Located at the foot of the mountain, the giant that contains many of the natural attractions of the county, the city has a diverse and plentiful selection of places to stay. In the older parts of town, choose from characterful guesthouses, newly built boutique-style hotels, and larger resorts on the outskirts. Head to the north in the ancient residential district of Shuhe for very traditional options with dramatic mountain views.
