Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, China travel Lijiang tour Yunnan tripYulong Snow Mountain (yulong xueshan) is the southernmost marine glacier in the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere. Altogether there are 13 peaks along the range, stretching for over 35km from south to north. The summit, Shanzidou, is 5596 meters above sea level. Viewed from afar, the snow-capped range resembles a silver dragon with snow curling up its middle. Rich forest, herb and animal resources thrive on the mountain and a giant tram cart up here is one of the highest of its kind in China.

The Ganhaizi Grassland is a famous tourist resort situated on the eastern slope of Yulong Snow Mountain, an ideal spot to view the mountain from. Within the resort, there are all kinds of entertainment facilities,including minority villages, camp sites, a bird paradise, ecological park, horse-racing track and a tram cart.

From near the Ganhaizi Grassland, a cable car carries visitors up the Yulong Snow Mountain. It can get pretty cold up here, so be sure you are dressed for the weather!
