When George Clooney first appeared with the salt & pepper look in Ocean's eleven, it was a mega hit with the audience. I couldn't resist 😁 myself in bringing that analogy when I looked at Jade dragon snow mountain 🏔️. It is a mix of both black and white look, caused by chemical salt (here salt is black) and snow. During summer times, if you choose to hike this place, then this is the place you can expect to see.
I did take the cable car upto the elevation of 4506 metres, then from there on hike some 300 metres which is totally strenuous as hiking 🥾 at an altitude of 4500 metres plus. Best advice would be to carry two big bottles of oxygen, which for sure will be useful. After hiking down again I took the cable car to go to the bottom. Have a snowy hike folks !!
Yulong park has few options for gaining your strength after going around the park. Yunnan is popularly known for its rice noodles particular style, and inside the park we only found one noodles option: Divine Dinning.
Plates are big, tasty, and few offers give you the possibility of creating your own style of rice noodles! Either with beef, chicken, vegetables, different types of tofu or mushrooms. You can also add few ingredients or sauces/vinegars to create your own mix. If you are not so fond of noodles, few rice options are available.
On the other hand, tea rice as staple for rice noodles is a must! Even if there’s sun outside, cold wind gets you. So this particular mix was all the energy I needed to continue my trip on another part of the park!
Location of dinning area is few steps away from Blue Moon Valley and Glacier Park bus transportation.

This scenic spot requires your full strength. Snow amount varies depending from season, however the scenery from the summit, and be able to prove yourself you did it, is amazing. Great places for pictures (enjoy the coolest alpaca ever).
You need to take a cable car to summit. Stairs from there are your best friend and worst enemy. You can find food shops along the way, too keep energy and warmth.
💲Inside the park are many restaurants and shops. You can rent a waterproof warm coat if required. If you need oxygen before the cable car, buy more. To avoid complications and additional charges, visit the park with a group tour.
🏔 You go over 2,500m in few hours. Don’t risk your body, listen to your heart beat. Take your time climbing, wait for few minutes until your body acclimate.
⚠️ Keep your passport at hand

It was said that some 100 thousand years ago, the area of Jade dragon🐲 snow mountain was only ocean. And only when India bombarded into Asia caused disruption and led to the rise of these magnanimous natural wonders🥸💫. Made of limestone and basalt, 玉龙雪山🐉 is totally black and white. It also depends on the time of the year, that she shows herself in different colors. If you're ever in Lijiang never miss the chance to go to this mountain🏔️. It's super public friendly, and totally can be done by yourself. Never miss to buy the oxygen mask 😷 going up, you'll definitely need atleast one hiking one

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is not far from the ancient city of Lijiang. It is a sacred mountain range of the Naxi people and has 13 interconnected peaks with a breathtaking view. You can take a cablecar up the mountain while observing the vegetation changing from bottom to top. The foot of the mountain is a ranch. During the spring season, there will be a large number of flowers blossoming. The Yunshan Ping on the mountain side is regarded by the Naxi people as a romantic place. The top of the mountain is covered in snow all year round, and you can absorb the glorious sight of the glaciers when you are up there.
