A cable car service is available to the summit of the Yak Meadow, one of 13 peaks of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Highly recommend you to walk around 1 hour on the meadow in Spring time.
The Yak Meadow is a large area of meadow on one of the mountains of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, it got its name because the local people like to pasture their Yak here.
The landscape rises and falls on the meadow. In spring and summer, Yaks with black and white skin wander in grass and all kinds of flowers. In autumn and winter, the mild edge of th meadow becoms a sharp contrast with the peaks of the snow mountain.
High latitude and wide meadow give you a board view. Looking down at Ganhaizi, Yunshanping and continuous mountains, you will find that the snow mountain is so close to you. Clouds circle around the waist of mountain. Cool wind gently blows on your face. All the things here are so peaceful and beautiful.
