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.

  • There is a ropeway to take all to about 4500M by ropeway. The ticket prices are high but the scenic beauty of the journey is good. Better to seat on the front left corner of the cable car to take good...  more »
  • The Jade dragon Snow Mountain as they say is really a magical ride. Who is Brazil's recommend as well as we did hire the tour by tour operator. They are looking for you at the hotel, they drive to the base (stopping before in one place to take pictures). In mainland China few speak English so if you are trying to "turn around" in a place where your data plan works is going to have serious problems. After you take a bus that takes you to the base of the mountain and then a cable car that takes you up to about 4500 meters high where you can then walk up to the Summit. It's a ride that is very worthwhile, we ate with the natives a different lunch and also visited the various lakes that exist in the region, unique experience in China almost on the side of the Himalayas.

  • A must place to visit in Lijiang. You will see a magnificent view. I love it very much and i wish to come back here in the future. I've been here in Dec 2017.  more »

  • Stunning scenery. The natural park was well managed. Little walking was needed as there is shuttle bus service that connects the tourist spots. Expect lots of people.
  • One star, nothing to do with the mountain, but the people. There are many local Chinese tourists here, loud and uncivilized. They don’t even know to queue. It’s way too crowded and spent most of the time just stuck in a massive “zoo”. Totally doesn’t worth it. After 40 counties, this is the worst and chaotic place I ever been -China, far away from civilization.
  • Amazing view, impressive cable car.
  • Magnificent view.. the southernmost glacier in northern hemisphere
  • The sight here is unbelievable. I recommend ppl to go there for vacation.
