Located in Lijiang, Yunnan province, Jade-dragon Snow Mountain is a famous mountain range in Southwest China. Its ancient glacier keeps melting into water, pours out as many creeks from the ground after filtered by rock strata. Several streams coalesce into a river across one new-moon shaped valley near the Spruce Meadow in the east. Blocked by the rocks, the river jumps and forms 4 bigger pools: Yuye Lake, Jingtan Lake, Blue-moon Lake and Tingtao Lake, plus one terrace-like terrain: White-water Terrace, the holy land of Dongba religion. The lake water looks amazing blue during sunny days, as a huge marvelous jade lying at the foot of Jade-dragon Mountain. The whole valley is like a beautiful blue moon in the embrace of Snow Mountains, wreathed by the clouds in the mist. So gorgeous, isn’t it?

Blue Moon Valley is the former tourist site, White-water River. When it’s good weather, the river appears unreal blue, while pure white colour during rainy days because of its white limestone riverbed and ground (that’s why people call it White-water River). In the hot summer of June, the valley was very charming with cool air. Mr.T and I walked along the lake bank, impressed deeply by the unusual blue colour and pretty clean streams of water on the white limestone. Mr.T took out his camera and shot a bunch of photos. I watched the Snow Mountains for a while, then put my hands into the lake water. Wow! It’s shocking colder than I ever thought. Around the lakes, grew luxuriant plants and forest of fir & spruce trees. On the sides of small paths, numerous purple wild flowers were blooming in the grass. How quiet, fresh and beautiful the valley was at the foot of Jade-dragon Snow Mountain!
P.S.
Blue Moon Valley is included in many tourism routes on the way to the Spruce Meadow or the Yak Meadow. Lying below the main peak of Jade-dragon Snow Mountain, the Spruce Meadow is kind of popular site, a huge grassland surrounded by ancient spruce forest. According to Naxi mythology and legends, it’s considered as the entrance to their heaven: the 3rd kingdom of Jade Dragon, a dreamland for the suicide lovers in the past. Well, just thinking of those young people who hung themselves on the spruce trees to “save” their love, I couldn’t deny my repugnance for such a cruel love-killing in this “holy” land, and I will never die for anything, amen.
