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.

我去过拉萨，所以对于高原反应还不太害怕。可惜现在的玉龙雪山，不对个体游客开放，必须通过网站的一日游购买门票，跟着小团队去，不然根本抢不到那些门票。还好我当天是个小团，连我在内才8个人。现在下面的蓝月谷逛逛，有一段景色比较象九寨沟，不过好看的地方都被圈起来了，弄个牦牛拍照。因为我们上山的缆车票是中午12:30，还在山脚的餐厅吃了个小火锅，才78元一个，性价比还是高的。缆车一下来，很多人立刻就缺氧，去... more »I've been to Lhasa, so I'm not too scared about the plateau reaction. Unfortunately, now Yulong Snow Mountain, not open to individual tourists, must go through the website of day trips to buy tickets, follow the small team to go, otherwise they will not be able to grab those tickets. Fortunately, I was a small group that day, even I was only 8 people. Now the blue moon valley below, there is a scene more like Jiuzhaigou, but good-looking places are circled up, get a yak to take pictures. Because our cable car ticket up the mountain is 12:30 noon, but also in the foot of the mountain restaurant ate a small hot pot, only 78 yuan a, cost-effective or high. As soon as the cable car came down, many people immediately went to the oxygen-absorbing room without oxygen. Only I walked up to 4680 with a few other boys, and I jumped up and took a picture. And I did not absorb oxygen all the way, the guide happy, after all, I returned the oxygen cylinder can sell at least 100 yuan. The scenery is magnificent, white snowy mountains, no sunshine is very cold place. Although the plateau reaction is not strong, but the head is still a little dizzy, a little sleepy. Desperately taking pictures, leaving himself at the height of his present life, 4680 meters. Perhaps in the future I have the confidence to go to higher places and see more beautiful scenery.
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.
