Yulong Meadow, Lijiang, China: The 2K1 Tour

The parking lot below the chairlift to the meadow.





Instead of taking the chairlift you can take a horse and ride up.  Strangely, it takes about the same amount of time, not sure of cost difference.  You might think the chairlift is much faster, but no.


There is cattle on the sides of the mountain.


Once you get to the peak of the first mountain, you go across to the next, which you can see here, and then across to another peak  It takes about 20 minutes.  As you might be able to see, there is plenty of mist to go through.  This was early in the morning, well about 10:am in late July.



At the top of the chairlift.  The women with the hats with a heather are usually trying to sell `traditional' crafts and things.



Want your picture taken on a yak?


One of the many food stalls.


You can see there are a `few' here, and this is only a small portion of the walk on the meadow.


This is where we stopped for some yak cheese and some type of tea, I think it was, tasted horrid.  Even Sally who eats most things and likes them, hated it.





Sally and I on the edge of the parking lot.
