Beautiful, iconic views of Jade Snow Mountian frame the 5 arch bridge and pagoda - perfect for avid photographers! Wander through the park as each new view brings thoughts of how perfectly beautiful the setting really is. For some strange reason the taxi driver said the water is low - not so - every view is perfect! We went about... More

This park is absolutely wonderful. It surrounds a small lake formed by the outflow of a large natural spring. It is said that there are great views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain but it was cloudy on our visit and we missed that. Photo opportunities abound as there are picturesque buildings and a fancy white bridge as well as the... More

Beautiful park grounds inside the old city of Lijiang. 80 RMB for a five day pass gets you inside the old city and good for all attractions. Also many good restaurants and vendors inside the old city. Can get hectic and commercial, especially at night, but nevertheless still a definitely must do.

Strangely, a hostess at our bungalow in Shuhe suggested that we not take the time to visit the Black Dragon Pool saying the water level was lower than normal. We're so glad we ignored the suggestion and visited this beautiful park - the pictures we took there are some of the favorites of our entire 2-week visit to China. We'd... More

You have to come here for the iconic view of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain behind temples in a lake. It's a gorgeous sight and makes a stunning photo. The park is really nice, leafy and relaxing.

Its a lovely park to walk and enjoy the view all around the lake with snow mountain behind. There are pavilions and rest stops along the walking path and the bridge is the highlight for taking photos.

I should probably mention right off the bat that due to the weather conditions we didn't see the Jade Dragon Snow mountain on the day we visited the park. So the WOW factor was definitely missing. It is a nice park and the 80 yuan entrance fee also give you access to Lijiang old town. So if you are planning... More

This site may be the best photo opportunity inn all of China. Excellent foreground with a view toward Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the background.

It is a beautiful to revisit after my journey there 12 years ago. The park has actually improved in many aspects--- even more beautiful and cleaner. There are less and less smokers in China nowadays, so it makes a public park so much more enjoable to stroll through. We found out that the entrance is free for all local residents---... More
