Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Xue Shan 玉龙雪山)


If staying at Lijiang Old Town, how did you guy get to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Xue Shan 玉龙雪山)? What option I can have? Travelling time and fare?

A) Cable car:

Knowing from travelchinaguide.com/attraction/yunnan/lijia… there are 3 Ropeway Fare, which route is recommended? Travelling in 1st week of December, basically would like to get up there to see the snow mountain, get down somewhere with snow, stay a while for photo shooting, is it possible to get down or the cable car will only allowed to let tourists drop off at designated viewing platform? Please advice.

B) Impression Lijiang Show:

How many show available per day? Where can I refer to show time table? Would you recommend to watch the show before go up to the mountain by cable or after? How long for the show? Is it easy to get ticket?

If I have a full day, depart from Lijiang Old Town, do I have enough time to cover both A and B above included travelling and queue for ticket time? What time I should set off and be back?

You read wrongly, you do not need a special permit to visit Yulong mountain.

Read through this hotels review and make your choice:


Just make sure that the hotel provides at least an electric blanket, it is cold at night.

The behaviour there is brilliant. NO ONE messes about there. No such thing as misbehaving, every pupil knows not to.

After reading so many suggestions from other poeple , as a local poeple, i would like to show you my sincere suggestion .

1: you can choose one cable of three , maybe big one (180RMB) to 4500m's galcier , have a walking on 4500---4680m's woody step road to enjoy the nice mountain , maybe you won't able to touch snow in September , you can see the mark of road , it's easy for you .

2: Lijiang Impression Show is perfect , you will like it very much for sure , the cost is 190RMB , you can book before a day by tel : 0888_8888888 , the time is 9:00am , 11:00am or 14:00pm , three showes everyday .

3: you can finish both of them , even to have a walking around Blue Moon Pool Valley & White water river .

4: the cost of total :

cable car to galcier 180+Snow Mountain ticket 125+Impress Show 190=495RMB

and you can rent a mini car with 7 seats : 200RMB .
