We were on a group tour with Wendy Wu, (28 days all over China), and this was meant to be a highlight. I was not too impressed. Maybe I am being a bit unfair, but alpine scenery, and cable cars are nothing spectacular for travellers...More

Often people mistaken this mountain’s location is in Europe. It’s understandable as this mountain looked magnificent and has a wonderful a crystal clear river flowing at its foot. It’s a must see venue if you are in Yunnan, China.

It takes a couple hours to get here from Lijiang and then be prepared to wait in lines for the shuttle bus and cable car. In early June the lines were very short but there were still a lot of people up on the mountain....More

Be prepared to spend a full day here, as the area is vast and getting around takes some time. We faced slight difficulty in navigating the area/system due to language barrier and lack of information at site. I hope that this would be helpful to...More
