Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Yunnan


Jade Dragon, Yunnan

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, or Yulong Snow Mountain, located near Lijiang, is the southernmost glacier in the northern hemisphere. The snow-capped and fog-enveloped peaks look like a jade dragon in the clouds from the Old Town of Lijiang, from where the mountain's name originated. Its tallest peak has an altitude of 5,600 meters. The mountain abounds in natural landscapes of semitropics, temperate zone and glacial zone. It is a sanctuary for rare animals and plants.
