Good place for photo shoot. Good walking trails if the weather is cooling. Saw many couples taking their wedding shoot at the areas.

The rain did not dampen the crowd enthusiasm, although it is off peak season, the lines for connecting buses still seemed long. The tram and buses within the park were bit of hassle especially during a raining day. The valley is okay, like the modern...More

It really is a wonderful trip and see the aqua colored waters and the mountains. If you do not mind walking a bit, save your money and just ride the bus. Do not invest in the electric cars. The bus takes you to the main...More

Very beautiful, it is surrounded by the mountain. Could get packed with tourist and couples taking pre wedding picture. It is a free attraction that comes with snow jade dragon mountain ticket. The view is better than the snow mountain in my opinion, uniquely beautiful

This isn't the main attraction of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, but we found this to be our favorite part of the park. While everyone else is waiting in line to go to the summit, at Blue Moon Valley you'll find deep-blue colored lakes and yaks...More

The water is kind of bluish-white after rain. Even though the Yulong Snow Mountain was not visible at the background, the overall scenery is still attractive. It is a hotspot for pre-wedding photography among the locals.

Saw the scenery in Chinese TV and decided to visit from the States. You will not be disappointed with the stunning Jade Mountain as back drop and clear prestige water cascading down. Saw many newly couples taking photos.

It's so so pretty and amazing with the so blue water. Lot of couples taking pre wedding there. Since it's quite big, so you can take photo at every angle without worrying someone is bejind you. Is a must visit place!!

Yes 000Wanderer000 is correct. The fee is incorporate into the park. Instead of climbing the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, you can take the mini paid bus (different from the big bus to the Mt).
