Glacier


The cable car that we took up Jade Dragon Snow Mountain is the highest passenger cable car in China, since it goes up to over 15000 feet.  One of the things to see up there, besides the view and the mountain itself, is the glaciers.  There are nineteen glaciers around the mountain, all at over 4000 meters (13000 feet); their claim to fame is being the southernmost glaciers in the northern hemisphere, as it's very unusual to find any so far south.  The hike up from the cable car station leads to a platform to look at one of the glaciers, so here are a few pictures.
