Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (Yulong Xue Shan), 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. The tallest peak (out of 13) of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain 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.[bijundong/bbs.fengniao]
