Jade Dragon Snow Mountain has always been the god of the Naxi mountains, Naxi people firmly believe that their protection God "Three" is the embodiment of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain more than 30 km from Lijiang, there is no train, there is no bus. Some 3-8 Road (blue minibus) to the so-called snow-capped mountains, will pull guests on their way to go horse riding at the foot of the snow-capped mountains, the cost is expensive. In fact, here is more suitable for local FIT carpool or day trip, if not with the group can also be chartered, the van price of 200 dollars a day, but you need to rent clothes (50 dollars) to buy oxygen (68 a small bottle ). Winter clothes can be rented according to individual needs can not rent, oxygen suggest that we still buy a few bottles, or else under a large cable anoxia on the trouble. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Glacier Park is very advanced ropeway, ten minutes can rise more than 1,000 meters, but is completely enclosed. After the basic will be asthma down, oxygen must be prepared in advance, of course, the above service stations are also sold, 100 dollars a bottle.

 Early departure to the snow-capped mountains. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain area into the future to be unified to Gan Haizi, from the service station take the scenic green bus can go to the Blue Moon Valley or cable car station. It is recommended to go to see the Blue Moon Valley, where a blue lake, and the valley was crescent-shaped, far looks like a blue moon inlaid at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. At the same time it is also called Baishui River, because the bottom of the riverbed is composed of white limestone, the water will turn white when it rains, really amazing. If it is not very tired, it is recommended that you do not take those electric cars, because the best view on the lake, driving will be missed an instant, but also far from unimaginable.

 Wandering Blue Moon Valley need to return to Gan Hai Zi, continue to take the green bus to the cable car station. Yulong Snow Mountain cable car may be the most exciting cable car you've ever sat, just driving point is already 3369 meters above sea level, along the way to catch up with a windy rain, but the adrenaline soared ah. Under the cable car when the elevation is 4506 meters, that is, you rise all the way the vertical height of more than one kilometer. Get off and then climb about 200 meters to the highest point. The higher the oxygen is, the thinner the stairs, the stairs must be slow, do not worry, fast and easy to go high, uncomfortable to take oxygen to breathe, altitude sickness with the physical differences between the individual, if you feel unwell must not be hard support.
The mountain is not very cold, the sun shines on the body warm, but a gust of wind blowing cool again.Very strong UV, remember to apply sunscreen, with good sunglasses. From the height of 4680 meters overlooking the mountain, there is a sense of accomplishment challenge the limit.

Lashihai day play

Lashihai is the first nature reserve in Yunnan Province named after "wetland". The water source is snow water above Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, about ten kilometers away from the ancient city of Lijiang. As the mirror reflects the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Lake, the time recommended to go, mainly riding boating, feel the natural scenery, the same day you can from. However, more pit here, in the ancient city of Dayan Naxi aunt asked you not to Lashihai, as long as 5 dollars. But wait for you to really go, riding a boating not three or five hundred simply can not come. If you do not play, it is difficult to come back, only to find their own car in the village, but the view of Lashihai sea confirmed great.

 Personal advice to the group to participate in a day trip or carpool to more convenient and peace of mind. It usually starts from Lijiang Ancient City at nine o'clock in the morning, so it takes about 40 minutes by car to get to Lashihai. Lashihai local there are more than 50 racecourse, each riding a different line, the scenery is not the same, but the general direction is the so-called Tea Horse Road trail. Riding for about an hour and a half, after the downhill is the time to eat lunch, you can try local roast chicken with local chicken pot. After eating full can play kayak, this is a physical activity, but very fun, generally do not get wet clothes. Two o'clock in the afternoon to return to the ancient city of Lijiang Dayan it.
