Photographer's Note

I am not specially satisfied with this composition but here you can imagine how the whole place looks like. In the background there is Jade Dragon Snow Mountain Its highest peak is named Shanzidou, 5,596 m. You can get to the highest attraction Glaciers Park of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain scenic area on an altitude of 4506m. When getting of the cable car on 4506m altitude, you can still walk a distance to the highest point in the scenic area - place on 4680m altitude. I even bought the bottle with the oxygen and I wanted to go up but my friend was afraid of this high altitude. I hoped to have this bottle as souvenir, but they took it from me on the railway station.
Below you see the turquoise waters of the lake in Blue Moon Valley. And at the bottom the terraces of the White River. And what is under the orange umbrella? There are Yaks , like everywhere in Shangri La.

As you can see, it is VERY popular place.
