Huanglong mountain

huanglong cable car


Huanglong is a scenic area in Songpan County and listed as World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The altitude is above 3000 meter.

A cable car took us to the top where we could walk to the pools and hot springs. Maybe it was the fast difference in height when i felt dizzy and tired. The altitude in Chengdu is 500 meter where we came from with the tour bus. On the top of Huanglong are several resting points where you can sit and get some oxygen. Temperature was not cold (in summer). A sweater is sufficient to keep warm. After the visit of the mountain we went to Jiuzhaigou.
