Jade Dragon Snow Mountain
Located 15 km north of Lijiang old town, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain stretches 35 km from north to south with 960-square-kilometers of snow-capped area. Experts say that it has the southernmost glacier in the North Hemisphere. Of all the 13 peaks on the mountain, Shanzidou is the highest with an altitude of 5,596 meters above sea level. Looking from afar, you can see that the mountain just looks like a huge dragon lying in the cloud. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is the holy mountain - 'God of Sanduo' of Naxi people.
Jade Dragon Snow Mountain now has become a draw for tourists or travelers. The major spots include 3 cable cars to the 3 sites on the mountains (snowline, Yak Meadow and Cloud Fir Meadow), Ganhaizi (meadow, highland pasture), White Water River and nearby Naxi Wenhai Village.
