You will meet our guide and driver at your hotel in Lijiang. After a small talk, we will set out on this 1-day private Lijiang tour to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
Upon arrival, we will initially spend a few minutes at Ganhaizi (Dry Sea Meadow) viewing the boundless prairie and looking up at the magnificent Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. After that, we will take the ropeway to reach the Spruce Plateau on the hillside, which is regarded as the best place for shooting the spectacular scenery of the Snow Mountain. You will also enjoy the splendid show, the Impression Lijiang, performed on an open-air stage against the snow mountain.
Visitors to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain are admitted by receipts for Lijiang entrance fee only, so we will purchase it for you beforehand. If you are also interested in visiting the Black Dragon Pool Park in the north of Lijiang Old Town, we suggest you arrange it on the following day of this Lijiang 1 day trip to avoid doubling the entrance fee.
The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is considered the holiest mountain in local Naxi minority people’s mind. There are 13 undulating peaks being covered with snow and glacier ice all year round. With the company of our guide, you are able to have a full view of the mountain while strolling the meadow of Ganhaizi, and also capture the best scene of the snow mountain at the hillside Spruce Plateau, which is an alpine meadow embraced by lush spruce forests.
With the holy Jade Dragon Snow Mountain as the backdrop, more than 500 local villagers put on a splendid singing and dancing show on an open-air stage, occupying an altitude of 3,100 meters (10,200 feet), demonstrating distinctive customs and culture of Naxi minority in front of the audience.
It is a tranquil ancient town where a lot of native Naxi people still live their life in a leisure style. Besides immersing yourself in the rustic lifestyle, the remaining 55 Baisha Murals of religious subject like Buddhism, Taoism and Lamaism, is the other highlight of Baisha Village, made during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 – 1911).
