1. Go asap. During peak season, opening time to purchase the cablecar tickets is 7am. Non peak season is 8am. Going early also guarantees a clearer view at the top (or more time to wait for the fog/cloud to disperse). Some hotels are able to...More

We hired a car and tour guide to bring us to the mountain. I feel you could do it on your own, especially if your Mandarin is reasonably good. However, it was very nice to have the guide available to help us navigate the ticket...More

If you have been to alpine mountains before, this place is not that special. The only thing is its height over 4,500 metres. You many need to use oxygen bottles, as air is thin. Overall, it is cold and would be good on a sunny...More

I went to the glacier park via cable car and blue moon valley. The cable car cost me 200 yuan but the park at the peak is too small and crowded which seems not very worthwhile. The valley is beautiful and many couples were taking...More

We visited in the fall. Our weather was overcast with light rain. This kept the crowds manageable. A cable car whisks you to a high ridge. A boardwalk through interesting woods leads to a large meadow where there are 'good views' - but for us...More

Hi. I will be on Jade Dragon Mountain in May. How cold will it be above the cable car stop? Is there a place to rent a warm jacket? Thank you.

Transportation between Lijiang and the Glacier Park cable car? I would like to know the easiest way to travel from Lijiang old town and the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, i.e. the place where you take a cable car up to the glacier park, the peak of 4600 meters. I would like to travel in the morning (maybe 07.30-08.00), so I am there before when most of the tourists arrive. What is the best option, bus, taxi or other transportation? What is the average travel time and where do I travel to, the cable car station or any other place? Will it be best to buy cable car tickets at the station, or can these be purchased a day in advance? Thanks, Richard

You can get to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain by bus at the Hongtaiyang square (红太阳 广场) But honestly I don't recommend it since the bus's crowded even since early morning (it starts running around 7). You might want to charter a... More
I will be going to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain round about 30th October. People tell me there won't be sufficient time to go to the Impressions Show AND Glacier Park AND Blue Moon Valley AND Spruce Meadow. If we want to go the Impressions Show, do you advise to go to Glacier Park, or Spruce Meadow plus Blue Moon? Which is likely to have the least problem with queues for the cable car? If we left the Impressions Show say 10 minutes early, would there be less problems with queues? Lastly, can anyone advise a website showing a good map of the area, showing all the cable cars and sights? Many thanks for your help.
