Jiaozi Snow Mountain
Being 160 kilometers away from the downtown
of Kunming, Jiaozi Snow Mountain Scenic Area is situated at
the border between Dongchuan District and Luquan Yi and Miao
Autonomous County. Jiaozi Mountain derives its name from its
resemblance to a traditional Chinese sedan (Jiao Zi). Jiaozi
Mountain Scenic Area consists of Jiaozi Mt., Qiwang Mt., Dongying
Mt. and Guanyin Mt. etc., covering over 250 square kilometers.
With the highest altitude being 4,223 meters above the sea
level, Jiaozi Mountain appears to be the "highest mountain
in Central Yunnan".
Jiaozi Mountain belongs to mountainous glacial
landforms. Inside the scenic area, one can witness lofty peaks
and precipices, well-preserved virgin forests, glacial lakes,
alpine meadows and glaciers. The entire scenic area also abounds
in fauna and flora resources. Besides, it is famous for its
peculiar and intoxicating sceneries of the four seasons and
the rich ethnic cultures. Jiaozi Mountain was listed as a
natural reserve of Kunming in 1989 and a provincial-level
scenic attraction in 1993.
Due to its geographic location between the
fault zones of Xiaojiang River and Pudu River, Jiaozi Mountain
is made known-by the special geological formations and complicated
landforms-for the changeable climate. The famous sights there
include alpine lakes, snow, rhododendrons, clouds, sunrise
and Buddhist halo etc.
