China is widely known for its ancient, historical architecture. When it comes to planning a trip to China, most people have the misconception that the only thing that makes China visit-worthy are their metropolitan cities like Shanghai, or historical landmarks like the Great Wall of China.
However, there are other parts of China which are free from ancient ruins, such as the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in Kunming, China.
Traders can be seen selling oxygen tank and winter jacket along the journey to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Most of the tour guides will suggest tourists to get an extra tank of oxygen and winter jacket especially to children, elderly and people with asthma, all thanks to the bone-chilling coldness from the snow.
It is recommended to arrange a one-day tour to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain to skip the long queue at ticket counter. When it comes to Mother Nature, one’s experiences at places as such highly depends on luck, so if it is cloudy or raining during the day of your visit, you can forget about taking a nice shot with the beautiful ice mountain as your backdrop.
