Jiaozi Snow Mountain

Jiaozi Snow Mountain is located in Luquan County just 116 miles north of Kunming along the north of Yangtze River. Its highest peak Wumeng Gongwang rises almost 14,000 feet above sea level, yet it is still relatively unknown among travelers to the area. The summits snow cap lasts from late October to March. Pine forests, camellias, azaleas and wild flowers abound. The mountain gets its name from its shape which some believe to resemble several people lifting a chair. The best views are the cloud sea, the Buddha light, the sunrise and the Huahai.

To get from Kunming to Sifangjing at the foot of Jiaozi Mountain takes about 6 hours. Then one usually walks or goes on horseback up to the mountain base camp and lodge there. The base camp is in the Dahaiqing valley, which is above the snow line. Walking from Sifangjing to the base camp takes about two and a half hours.

Popular spots include the base camp, Flower Stream, One-line sky, Tanchi Lake, Dead Forest, Mubanhai, the Immortal Field, Elf Pond, Moon Rock and the icefall. Admission is 15 Yuan.
