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
