  The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Yunnan, China
by XenoHumph
 
 

The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is marking the Southeastern edge of the Himalayas mountain chain. It tops at an impressive 5596 m. This eternally snow and glacier-capped mountain makes an impressive backdrop to the town of Lijiang and you have to go around it to reach the Tiger Leaping gorge from there.
Although I did not have time to do it, there is a chairlift followed by a cable car going up to 4500 m high! Watch out for elevation sickness!

Directions: 35 km North of Lijiang

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
