  • 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.

  • Superb. A must go.

  • Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is the closet to Equator 365 days snowed peak. The Yulong mountain is at 4506 meter above sea level.Must see.Visit also the Blue Moon Lagoon and the Impression Lijiang Show. Timing is 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. The snowcapped Yulong Mountain is a sanctuary for rare animals and plants. We spent more than 2 hours on waiting. Experience of sitting in the cable car is exciting . They will provide oxygen bottle before riding. How to reach :- Take a cab to Hongtaiyang Square where there is a distinctive statue of Mao Zedong. In Lijiang, cab runs on meter, which is great for tourists. Fyi, within the city, cab fare is around 10rmb. At the square, look out for the parked mini vans across the road. These vans have sign boards indicating the destination. It only departs when full. Vans leave as early as 7 am, fare 20-25rmb, journey about 50 min to 1 hour, depending on traffic. Once there, you need to purchase the entrance ticket,'130 renbimbi' at the ticket office. If you intend to watch the Lijiang Impression Show, it is better to get the ticket first.

  • A must visit place that full of nature and culture in Yunnan! Some of you must be curious how many races people here work together even live together with their own lifestyle and habit! The most shocking view is Yulong Snow Mountain and their super natural own fondant and waterfall that fall down by snow from mountain. The water is really clear through their strict management that the river is not allow tourist to wash hand or even throw rubbish. The last, is Zhang Yi Mou's show that performed by local people that from different clan! (they're not actors, they're truly what clan they are!) This show made me truly touched which I'm Chinese people that far away from Malaysia. So that's why feeling touched for these of cultures and peoples still at there and perform to all the people from the world who can truly understand their culture!

  • Beautiful place to visit. Because of the altitude, one who has possible altitude sickness should avoid taking the cable car going up to summit. Healthy one too is recommended to use mini oxygen tank. On a clear day, view from top is remarkable. Impression of Lijiang is a good show to watch as well. There is limited restaurant choices at the resort especially for Muslim visitors. End to end price arrangement from city, up to peak, meal and show can be expensive.
