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.

  • Exotic panorama with high altitude, you can buy oxigen tab and wlking slowly to prevent altitude sickness  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.
