Yulong Snow Mountain or Olu (silver rock) in Naxi language is a scenic area that covers an area of 415km. The mountain itself is always covered in snow and has an extensive chain of 13 snow peaks that looks like a flying dragon and so it is often called Jade Dragon. The other name it is referred to is Black White Snow Mountain because it is made up of limestone and basalt.
There are a number of scenic spots you can visit including Glacier Park, Ganhaizi, The Blue Moon Valley, Spruce Meadow, Yak Meadow, Yushui Village, Dongba Valley, Yuzhuqingtian, Dongba God’s Garden, Dongba Kingdom and Jade Peak Temple. For us, the mountain dominated and was a beautiful backdrop to Old Lijiang and numerous other tours we took including Tiger Leaping Gorge. We did make our own way to the mountain and ended up seeing Yak Meadow and Blue Moon Valley. (see other tips)

To do this we caught the number 7 bus which took us to the booking office. Make sure that you do get them to drop you off here not at the Tourist Office which is some 200 metres away and if you are not sure what you are looking for hard to find.

Once at the Booking Office we bought tickets to Yak Meadow(see other tip). It was too windy the day we went to use the cable car to go to the top.

Cost to get in to the park was expensive
