The Yak Meadow means "beautiful and
mysterious paradise" in Naxi Language. In summer, the meadow
is dotted with blossom and yaks, presenting the most beautiful
and peaceful scenery. From the Yak Meadow, the 13 peaks of
Jade Dragon Snow Mountain are visible.
Yak Meadow got its name because the local
people like to pasture their Yak here. In spring and summer,
Yaks with black and white skin wander in grass and all kinds
of flowers. In autumn and winter, the mild edge of th meadow
becoms a sharp contrast with the peaks of the snow mountain.
High latitude and wide meadow give you a
board view. Looking down at Ganhaizi, Yunshanping Meadow and
continuous mountains, you will find that the snow mountain
is so close to you. Clouds circle around the waist of mountain.
Cool wind gently blows on your face. All the things here are
so peaceful and beautiful.
Service of a Cable car transfer to the summit
is available. Highly recommend you to leave the town of Dayan
earlier in the morning, to take the cable car. Usually it
is very crowded from 9h00 in the morning. So leave the town
at 7h00, and drive one hour to the Yak Meadow.
When you arrive the summit, have a simple
Tibetan style breakfast at the moutain top! Hot Yak milk is
something that can not be missed, at this moment, this place.
