Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Tour | Activities

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

Resembling a sleeping dragon in repose, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain slumbers majestically at 18,000 feet above sea level. Its main peak, Shanzidou ranks among the tallest glaciers in the world. Springtime in this corner of Shangrila erupts in a frisson of colour, dotting the soft meadows with vivid bursts of camellias and rhododendrons.

Follow the trail of nomadic herders as they lead their livestock and yaks to graze at Yak Meadow or revisit the traditional customs of the minority Naxi, Lishu, Pumi and Moshuo people. A Lishu shaman’s knife mountain climbing ritual and a fire sea jumping ceremony are other highlights of the tour.
