Information from Viator
Experience Lijiang’s nature and culture on this private trip specially designed for a relaxing and peaceful day. The tour includes a visit with the cable car to the wonderful Yak Meadow and a walk around the Blue Moon Valley at Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. You will also enjoy a visit to the traditional Naxi village of Shuhe Ancient town.
Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Lijiang city centre and enjoy a scenic 45 minute drive to the majestic Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The main peak of this mountain is measured at 17,000 feet above sea level mimicking a gigantic dragon clad in white snow all year round.
You will ride a cable car up this legendary-shrouded mountain for stunning views of its glacier and peaks. You will reach the Yak Meadow, which got its name because the local people like to pasture their Yak here. You will walk around following a wooden path along the meadow to enjoy the peaceful and beautiful environment. Then you will go down with the cable car and visit the Blue Moon Valley, where water terraces form from the melting snow and depending on the season, can be naturally white or turquoise-blue.
After the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, enjoy a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch before continuing the trip to Shuhe Ancient Town. This traditional Naxi ethnic village is famous for its folk customs, historical monuments and multicultural landscape. The village is surrounded by a murmuring river and interlaced with smooth flagging, making it a relaxed and less crowded version of Lijiang.
